Your entryway door is the main point of entry to your home, so by that logic, it should be the most sturdy and hardest to penetrate. Entryway doors come in a variety of materials, including wood and metal, but it should be able to stand up to both the elements, regular daily use and and unwanted guests. If you live in an area that experiences severe seasonal changes that really test a door’s structural integrity, make sure you are not investing in a material that is going to fall apart after a couple of winters. Speak to your door installation company about what is right for your area, budget etc.
Once you’ve decided on your design and your material, you are going to want to decide on the colour. This can be an opportunity to consider a door that meshes will with the facade of your home, or incorporate a pop of colour that shows a little personality and design flair. Your entryway door is going to be something that immediately draws people’s attention, so it makes sense that it should not be a complete eye sore.
