How to catch people’s attention with your front door
Your home’s entrance is the very first thing you, your visitors and even any prospective house buyers will see, so make a statement, enhance your home’s kerb appeal and freshen up your exterior by focusing on your front door. Upgrade your door with a fresh lick of paint or choose a DIY overhaul with brand-new hardware and a bold on-trend shade. Let’s take a look at some ways you can make your door stand out.
Although a white, black, cream or beige door is a stylish staple, a bold statement colour is much more on-trend this season. With bright and beautiful doors becoming increasingly popular, why not opt for a rich inky blue, sunshine yellow or forest green front door instead? To repaint your front door, simply wait for some dry weather, lightly sand the surface to help your paint adhere, and apply specialist door paint with a roller or brush for an upgrade in an instant.
Choosing features and hardware
A subtle customisation can make a big difference. Consider contrasting your door handle with your front door’s paint colour or adding a stylish door knocker. Adding additional security features, such as deadbolts and hinges, can both spruce up your door’s appeal and offer additional peace of mind. For those seeking to replace their door, a wide variety of composite doors Cirencester and the surrounding area are available.
Which type of door?
The style of your door can truly transform the appearance of your home’s exterior in addition to helping to insulate your property and reduce your energy costs. A traditional timber door can be timeless and is easy to refresh with paint; however, it tends to take additional work to maintain and can show signs of wear and ageing more quickly. UPVC doors can prove a cost-effective and stylish option, requiring less maintenance than their timber counterpart, while composite doors in Cirencester and the wider area come in a variety of styles and offer beautiful timber-like appeal at a fraction of the cost.
