Your entry door is the first thing people see when you welcome guests into your home, so it makes sense to invest in a front door that can provide both security and curb appeal. Today’s post from replacement doors company Renewal by Andersen® of Kentucky talks about what to consider when choosing the style of your entry door.
The material you choose for your front door is just as important as the style. In fact, the material can dictate what style will work best for your home. With that said, there’s a corresponding type of material for every look you want to achieve. If you value security, reinforced steel doors are a good option. Wooden doors can be a simple yet elegant choice for your front door, though bear in mind that the upkeep of wooden doors can be extensive.
Fiberglass doors bring together the best of both worlds by combining the durability of steel doors with the elegance of wooden ones. In addition, fiberglass is versatile in that it can also be used as a material for your patio doors.
The style of your front door can make or break the look of your home’s exterior, which is why your entry door has to complement your home’s architectural style. Classic-style doors with raised panels or glass inserts can enhance the look of a traditional home, while modern homes have to be paired with doors with clean lines; think minimalist designs on sleek metal doors. Heavy, rustic doors look good on cabins and homes made mostly of wood, though Craftsman-style door can be used as an alternative if you’re not into the rustic look.
Considering the material of the door and the style of your home will help you determine which entry door style will be perfect for you. The components of your home should always reflect your tastes and preferences as a homeowner, so don’t be afraid to take your time finding just the right entry door to fit your home and your personality.
