5 Tips for Choosing the Best Front Door for Your Home

Your front door makes a statement. It can be good or bad depending on the door, but what is undebatable is that it will be noticed. 

Your entry door is front and center of your home, which already draws attention to it. Plus, it is the first feature of your home that guests will see up close when entering your home for the first time.

Choosing the best front door for your home is crucial. Let’s look at 5 tips to help.

1. Material

The material you choose is an important factor both for looks and function. For security purposes, your door should be sturdy to help dissuade breaking and entering. And for aesthetics, you want something eye-catching and beautiful. Sturdy wooden doors fit the bill nicely for many people.

2. Windows

There are various styles of windows that you can add to your front door. Or you might go with a solid door if security/privacy is an issue. Another option is to have small windows installed beside the door rather than in it. 

3. Insulation

Everything in your home should be energy efficient — even your front door! A well-insulated door will help cut down on energy costs.

4. Color

You can paint your front door any color under the sun. Choose something that contrasts nicely with the rest of your home. And sleek, varnished wood is always one of the best choices!

5. Single or Double

Most front doors are single doors, but for an extra elegant touch, you might consider double doors. This chic look will take your home from plain to luxurious in the time it takes to install a door!
