What your front door says about you!

Have you ever wondered why millionaires have the most beautiful entrances and always use them?

The entrance is where people walk into your home and get their first impression.  A fabulous door can truly create a focal point for your home. It can completely change the personality of your front elevation and give viewers a feel for your sense of style. There are, of course, rules of thumb to follow when selecting a front door:

 1.   OPENING SIZE:

Check the size of your opening. While a double door is more inviting, do not sacrifice function for visual aesthetics. Choose a door appropriate to the size of the opening.

 2.   DOOR STYLE:

A solid front door without a window is best. Make sure it opens freely and widely. Stained or painted woods are both great options.

 3.   DOOR COLOR:

As you enter your home, the color and condition of your front door have a powerful impact on people’s thoughts and overall feelings. If you wish to invite more powerful energy into the home, choose a vibrant red paint for your door. If you wish for a more understated look, paint doors and shutters black or a more neutral color.

Don’t forget, there are many shades of colors – so take your time and choose only one that you really like.

Just be sure to marry function and style and be true to the architecture of the home. A modern home will allow you the most flexibility and if you are fortunate enough to live in such a dwelling—indulge yourself, live on the edge and explore the possibilities of new materials such as metal, specialty glass or a combination of materials. Most importantly-have fun and let your individual style shine!
