Renovation ideas for your front door

July 15, 2022

Renovating the front door is a simple and effective way to increase curb appeal and add a unique touch of style to your home.

An entrance door is a great opportunity to display your design style to the world. Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to make any sort of compromise when it comes to quality. While sourcing our collection of entrance doors, we decided that we were not willing to compromise on anything for our clients. Through our search process, we learned that finding the perfect door can certainly be an intimidating ordeal. We want to make your search as simple as possible, so we wrote up a few tips to help you out.

Colour and curb appeal

The front door is the visual anchor of every home, so it is important to choose it carefully. One of the first aspect homeowners think of when it comes to their main entrance door is colour. We agree that colour choice is something that should not be taken lightly. The right colour will display your personality and complement your home design.

Since we offer almost every colour you can think of, it is important to start with narrowing down your choices. Here are some important questions to ask yourself before picking a colour for your entry door:

  • What colour scheme do I prefer: monochromatic shades, neutral shades, or a pop of colour?

This question will easily help you eliminate a good number of choices from our endless RAL colour chart! The key is to think about the colour scheme of the rest of your house, inside and out. For example, if you chose a contemporary, trendy look, with lots of colour as your interior design, then you are probably a good candidate for a coloured door.

  • Do I prefer lighter or darker hues?

This answer should help you narrow things down a little more. In general, we tend to naturally be drawn to certain hues. Some prefer lighter colours that blend in, others prefer darker hues that create a visual impact.

  • What other colours are noticeable around my door? 

When deciding on the color of your front door, it is important to observe your entrance in order to try to imagine the different colors and hues and how they will interact with the environment. Some aspects to consider are door trim, window borders, trees and plants, gates or fences, etc.
