Because the front door is your home’s focal point and one of the first things people notice when they come to your house, many homeowners want to make it stand out from the rest in the neighborhood. There are countless ways to personalize your front door and increase your home’s curb appeal, and we list a few popular ideas here.
Adding glass to your front door can transform its entire look and feel. Whether it’s frosted, clear, decorative, or etched, glass adds elegance and brings in more natural light, making your home feel brighter and more spacious. Adding glass inserts to your current door is a cost-effective way to make a statement and show off your personal style.
Sidelights are vertical windows or glass panels placed on either one or both sides of the front door. They’re aesthetically appealing and functional by improving visibility, allowing more natural light to come in, and adding security. Pairing sidelights with glass door panels can create a stunning look, make your home look unique among your neighbors and add value.
An active sidelight is a great option for anyone who wants to add glass inserts and expand the width of their doorway. Active sidelights are both beautiful and practical as they have the ability to be opened just like a door, which adds extra space in your front entryway.
Splash of Color
Don’t underestimate the power of paint. A brightly colored front door will draw attention and give your home a one-of-a-kind appearance. Some ideas to consider are fiery reds or calming blues. The advantage of paint is that it’s an inexpensive upgrade that can radically transform your home’s appearance and allow you to show off your unique style.
Smart Door Features
Many people have jumped on the smart home train. Advancing technology gives homeowners greater control over their HVAC systems, lighting systems, thermostats, home theaters, and even the front door. From smart locks to doorbell cameras, integrating tech into your front door can enhance its security and make it more convenient to use. Moreover, devices that allow you to unlock your front door with a fingerprint can be a great conversation starter.
Hardware Makes a Statement
Another cost-effective upgrade that can significantly impact your front door’s appearance is little details like doorknobs, knockers, and decorative hinges. You’d be surprised at how much more expensive and attractive your front door will look simply by upgrading the standard hardware with something bold and visually appealing.
