How to Pick a Front Door

Posted By : Aubrey Mead , on Oct, 2015

 

If you own a home, you should know that one of the first things that anyone will notice when they first approach your home is your front door.  A beautiful front door will make a big impact on their first impressions of your home. Not only that, but it will make a big improvement in the overall appearance of your home on both the inside and outside. In this article, we will tell you what you should look for when you are choosing a single front door for your home.

Wood Doors vs Iron Doors

Wooden single front doors are by far the most popular choice in homes. They are affordable, they look great, they are versatile and they will last a long time. One thing that a wooden door has over the iron door is that you can repaint it whenever you want. You can paint it when it starts to wear out and make it look brand new again. Some people like to paint their door a new color every few years just to give it a different look. You can do anything you want with it, the choice is yours. If you don’t like the look of a painted door, you can also choose a wood-stained door. These doors do a great job showing off their wooden finish.

If you are looking for something a little different, you may want to consider an iron door. An iron single front door is strong and virtually maintenance free. Unlike wood doors, an iron door will not wear down over time. In fact, you can expect a well-made iron door to stay in great condition long after you move out. These doors are a little more expensive, but most owners say they are well worth it.

Check for Damage

Before you buy a door, you should always carefully inspect it for damage. Although most stores will allow you to return the door, it is not an easy task uninstalling it from your house after you find that it is damaged. To avoid this, check it carefully before you buy it.

Will It Fit with the Décor?

The most important thing to do is to make sure you are getting a door that will fit the décor of the rest of your house. If you don’t, you run the risk of buying a door that will clash with your house and stick out like a sore thumb.
