Entry doors should be as welcoming as they are secure. These front door design ideas from WMGB Home Improvement will not only inspire you and your guests, but also increase the curb appeal of your home, no matter the architectural style.
The New Classics
If your home happens to be of the Traditional persuasion, keep in mind that you can still experiment with front door paints and accessories. Accentuate your entry door with timeless conversation pieces like door knockers and knobs in brass or muted gold. You will be hard-pressed to find a brass-detailed door knocker that does not look good, so picking such an accessory for your home will surely increase curb appeal.
As for the door paint, you may pick a color that’s one or two shades lighter than your home’s monochromatic scheme. Don’t be afraid to experiment with various finishes and stains as textures can add more charm. It’s a good idea to pay attention to other entry points around the house as well, such as your patio door. Small benches and lanterns create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, especially for wooden doors. Just keep in mind the placement to avoid overcrowding the door area.
A Modern Take
Perhaps nothing can beat the aesthetic appeal of a metal door on a contemporary home. However, you don’t have to limit yourself to these types of doors to achieve an ultra-modern look for your dwelling. Black steel combined with wooden elements offer a cozy ambiance for your entry door without compromising the overall style of your home. You may also incorporate bold pops of color if you’re not a fan of monochromatic metal doors.
Not fond of color? Try energy-efficient glass front doors. You may also choose to install storm doors for added security and appeal.
