How to Choose the Perfect Entry Door for Your Home

March 17, 2017 0

While remodeling your Toronto home, it’s important to consider one design factor that frequently goes overlooked. Your front door is the first impression your guests will receive from your home, which is why you should aim to create a warm and welcoming tone that compliments your overall interior style.  With so many material and style options available it could be difficult to decide which front door is the right fit for your home. To help you with the shopping process we have put together a short list of tips to keep in mind when choosing the perfect entry door.

  • Have a Clear Understanding of Your Budget

Like most home improvement projects, it’s important to have a clear understanding of your budget prior to starting your project. While you may be concerned with the immediate costs of your door it’s important to take additional factors into consideration while determining your budget. Consider how much maintenance you are willing to put into your entry door on a regular basis, what type of security hardware you are looking for, the energy efficiency benefits of a door, and if you will be adding on any additional features like lighting or other decorative elements. It’s also important to take the life expectancy of the door into consideration by looking into the quality of the weather protection a door provides.  Additionally, you will want to consider which door models will increase your resale value if you choose to eventually sell your home.  

  • Be Aware of the Type of Material You Prefer

At Brock Doors and Windows, we carry the highest quality entry doors in steel and fiberglass. When choosing which material is right for you it’s important to consider the benefits associated with each.  Steel doors are one of the more affordable options available, and are also known for their durability and warp resistance.  Fiberglass is also an attractive choice for those who are looking for a durable, classic option without the extensive maintenance. 

  • Keep in Mind the Size of your Door Frame

While shopping for your new door it’s important to keep in mind the size and thickness of your door frame. This will help determine the height and depth of the door you need.

  • Know the Style You Are Looking For

While it may not seem like the style of your front door would be very important, a bold door with a splash of color is the perfect way to add some extra curb appeal. Or combine decorative glass elements or other classic embellishments to add an extra splash of character to your home. There are a plethora of beautiful and creative options from which to choose.
