Who knew a door could be so important? If it’s your front door, it is! Take a moment to think about when you walk up to your home or someone else’s home. The first thing you see apart from the landscaping is the entryway. The front door is the focal point of the entryway. Updating your front door adds instant curb appeal; attracts more buyers and increases the overall value of your home.
The Value of Your Front Door
Your front door is more than just a means to enter your home. It provides a myriad of behind the scene benefits.
The Right First Impression
What kind of first impression do you want to give guests and passersby? For instance, steel doors provide a modern or contemporary look while wooden doors are associated with luxury and elegance. The best front door matches the design of your home’s interior.
Increase the Value of Your Home
Updating your front door does more than just improve the aesthetics. Newer doors are more:
- Energy efficient – save you money throughout the year on your power bill
- Weather resistant – hold up better during severe weather
- Environmentally friendly – reduce your carbon footprint
- Secure – more difficult for unwelcome guests penetrate
All of these factors translate into an increase in the value of your home.
Nothing is more important than the safety of you and your family. Updated doors tend to be more secure against unwanted intruders with capabilities to withstand more force and accommodate higher security measures.
Tips for Updating Your Front Door
Updating the front door means different things for different homes and depends on your overall goals and current situation. For instance, if your front door is completely updated in terms of style and construction, it may be best to update the entire door. However, if it only needs a facelift, you may consider just updating the hardware and giving it a new paint job.
Guests and potential buyers should be able to get a glimpse of the interior style of your home based on the front door. For example, a wood door more than likely will not go well with a contemporary, minimalist home. People like homes that have matching interior and exterior styles.
