Choosing a front door for your home is an important decision. A front door has several critical jobs; it has to be able to withstand all kinds of elements (including rain, wind and harsh sun), it has to be a safety stronghold for your home and inhabitants and it is one of the design elements that will give guests a first impression of your home whilst setting the theme for the rest of the design throughout your home.

Choosing Material

With all that in mind, one of the first decisions is to choose material that will ensure optimal results for your specific needs. Wooden doors have much versatility when it comes to custom design but may need to have more upkeep, fiberglass doors can be made to look like wood and have more durability and resistance to elements whilst strong steel doors are making a trendy comeback, but can be prone to dents.

Consider Access

When choosing your front door, be mindful of how easy it is for you and your family to get in and out of your home without too much hassle on a daily basis. The same needs to be considered for furniture. If you’ve ever had disastrous outcomes when your new furniture cannot fit into your home without being disassembled and damaged in the process, then you know that is not a scene you wish to repeat.

Choosing Your Design & Design Elements

Most doors consist of a variety of materials for re-enforcement and insulation. From an external perspective, different materials used in the design for the sake of aesthetic appeal is also prominent. Customizing your door design means choosing colours, finishes and elements such as carving patterns (for wooden doors) or adding decorative glass elements for more natural lighting.
