No Excuses, Just Results.

The front door of your home can make a great first impression and can impact the curb appeal of your home. So if it is in need of a makeover or replacement, it will be well worth it and really be a welcoming addition to your home.
There is always the option of replacing your door for something completely new, but if that is not in your budget, there are many ways to spruce up your front door by adding interest and personality.
One of the easiest and most effective ways is to paint it. A coat of paint is not only inexpensive, but is also a quick fix as it takes just a few hours to do. Choose a fresh new colour or make a statement with a bold colour like red. A bright punch of colour that contrasts with the house colour is a great way to revamp the look of your home. Make sure you pick a high quality outdoor paint that will withstand the weather, high traffic and keys.
Another easy way to improve your front door’s appearance is by replacing the door hardware. Replace the dingy and outdated one that’s been on there way too long with a new style of door handle for a sleek look. Adding a beautiful doorknocker will also add a classic look to your door.
Here are a few other crafty ideas you may want to do to your front door makeover:
•Add vinyl details, like your family name or your house number. The options are endless and there are several online companies that will custom design something that’s right for your home.
•Decorate your door with a classic and simple grapevine wreath and change the decorations on it along with the seasons.
If your door is in rough shape and a new one is within your budget, you’ll have to decide what type of door you want to purchase. You can select doors made of wood, fibreglass or steel. Do you want it to have windows in it for added light into your home? Also, look at insulation, security, and durability when making your decision. Choosing a new energy-efficient one is also a bonus.
Make some easy changes to your front door and see what a difference it will make to the appearance of your home.
