The Right Material Matters
These days, entry doors are manufactured in everything from steel to vinyl to hardwood; each material has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and the one that works best is the one that most closely meets your specific needs.
For those living in a colder climate, warmth and insulation will be your top priority, so you’ll want to consider hardwood or vinyl. If security is your main concern, you won’t find anything better than a steel entry door. Before shopping around, try making a list of your must-haves – this will help narrow down the final selection.
Color, Style, and Design
The look and style of the door sets the tone for the interior of the house. And the aesthetic options are essentially endless, which means your personal taste will ultimately be the determining factor. A sleek, modern and urban house calls for a very different looking door than a classic, cozy and rustic house.
If you think your house’s exterior needs a little added personality and flare, consider choosing a bold colour for your front door. On the other hand, if you’re trying to create a tastefully understated and even monochromatic colour palette, you’ll want to opt for a more classic and subtle colour choice.
You’ll also need to decide whether to look for a door that has a window. There are traditional doors with bevelling or modern doors made with clean, straight lines. Remember that your entrance is quite literally the first thing people see as you welcome them into your home, so it’s important to put thought and consideration into your selection.
