Your front door sets the first impression of your home, giving visitors a glimpse of the beautiful characteristics of your property’s style. Whether you’ve struggled to create a unique look for this area of the home or want to ensure your entrance stands out, you can work with a supplier to create a stunning design. Here are some front door ideas to help you feel inspired.
Choose Unique Glazing
The glazing you choose for your front door can have an impact on its overall appearance, from textured glass to balance privacy and natural light to the different colours available. A great way to help your entrance stand out is via a decorative fanlight, which can even have a unique pattern designed for your property. This could include shapes and colours you love to create a beautiful feature both inside and out, as well as your house number or name if the glass will be installed at the top of the door (e.g. in a semi-circle above the other panels).
Experiment with Colour
As well as coloured glass, if you’re tired of the standard colour you’ve always had for your entrance, think about the paint option you’d like for your new front door. You could go for something bold which draws the eye to this area or even choose a colour more in-keeping with your property. Many brands even have specific paint palettes for the property style you want to convey, such as a period look.
Add a Porch
If you don’t want to replace your front door, a fantastic way to create a new look for your entrance is to add a porch. Not only does this have many functional benefits (e.g. storage, security and insulation) but it can transform the appearance of your property’s façade. Work with your local double glazing company to find a design which suits the look of your property, including porch roof options and glazing. Porches can be installed with both open and closed designs.
Explore Various Front Door Styles
The style of your front door is influenced by everything from the finishing details (such as door furniture) to its design. While most houses you see around you go for a traditional single front door, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Modern styles we’ve seen grow in popularity include pivot doors and double entrances. Brands like Solidor help homeowners to identify the style they want by dividing their designs into modern, traditional and luxury collections. They even offer a collection inspired by Italian culture.
