Choosing The Best Front Door For Your House
Your front door means different things to different people who approach it. To friends and family, it should be welcoming. To strangers who visit, it should make a good first impression. The first thing you must look at when deciding on what front door to install is the size of your house. If you have a single story house then it would not be the best idea to get double doors unless you have a very high ceiling. If the front door is too high, it will make your house seem matchbox like. This also applies for doors that have sidelights and a transom. If the entrance area of your house is a protruding section with a gable, then double doors and doors with sidelights will work. Arched double doors have been around for many years and are beautiful as any style. Double doors can be designed in a classic style. This works well for houses that have more of a stone textured or tiled house. Classic styled double doors also look great as a normal rectangular shape and decorated glass panels.
Try and match the theme of the front door with the theme of the house. This way the style of the house is continuous and doesn’t have a random break. If the bricks of your house haven’t been plastered, a single door with a decorated transom will suit the theme. Arched doors have bricks arched around them but give a decorative appeal.
