The First Impression – Your Home’s Door

Old Door, Old House; New Door, New Home

When it comes to your home, your front entryway is the center focus of curb appeal. It is your homes first impression to any guests, it plays a major role when selling your home. To any potential buyers, this is the first thing they see. In 2015, main entry doors came in as #1 as the most valuable improvement you could make for resale. Even beating out renovations to the bathroom, kitchens and even the master bedroom additions. The value that a new front entryway adds to the impression your home can have, lands it as one of the best investments you can make.

Not in the market for a brand new door?

There are a few less expensive alternatives to boost your home’s curb appeal. Decorations can play a role as many people boost the appearance of the front of their house by using colorful plants and flowers to give their home some vibrancy and life! This is never a bad idea if you are on a tight budget. Another option would be to switch up the color of your front door with a fresh coat of paint. When considering a change of color, ensure you stay within the style of your home. An option for someone with an older house with a solid wooden entryway would be to stain and polish the door rather than painting it; maintaining the look and feel of your home.
