If your door has weathered a few storms or if you wish to quickly boost the overall aesthetics of your home, replacing your entry door may be just the ticket. An update to your front door can quickly make your home safer, more energy efficient, and beautiful.

This week we’ll be offering some help in choosing a replacement door that will upgrade your curb appeal and the efficiency of your home.

Modern Doors are Epic Multitaskers

A front door is no longer just the barrier between your indoors and the world outside.

There are new options available to help you protect your home and your investment in the door itself. An older door in disrepair simply cannot compete with the most recently available options.

Modern materials will create stronger doors, while new security systems offer incredible peace of mind. But those aren’t the only options that will increase your home’s value and security.

Storm doors are essential to keeping your home warm and dry through winter storms, but they can cause problems in warmer weather. New storm doors are now modular, allowing you to switch between glass and screen options easily as the seasons change.

A glass storm door can trap heat between the panes and your door in the summer, which will lead to the wood warping and costly repairs or replacements down the line. Opt for a modular storm door and enjoy the flexibility you need to protect your new investment, no matter the weather or season.

The Options are Endless: Express Your Individuality Through Customization

There are lots of aesthetic possibilities to consider when choosing a new front door. Whether you wish your curb appeal was more sleek or extravagant, replacing your front door is a simple solution to change the entire visual effect of your home. The impact can be huge with enough thought and planning.

Accent colors are a marvelous way to add personality to any house, without the cost or commitment of repainting the entire exterior. You can take inspiration from trends or fearlessly trailblaze on a path all your own. As Jennifer Ott writes for Houzz, a beautiful green color can soften the transition between inside and outdoors. However, choosing a vibrant accent color can brighten the entire facade of your home.

There are countless accessories that can help make your front door exactly what you’re looking for. Adding windows to flood your entryway with natural light, updating the hardware to be more modern, or choosing detailed woodwork are all fun flairs that spruce up the overall appearance of your home.

Prioritizing and Compromising

All of the various options can overwhelm homeowners looking to replace their front door. Thankfully you do not have to compromise between how you want your new door to look and how well it functions. We advise you to consider the essentials like security and energy efficiency, and then get inspired by the countless aesthetic upgrades that will transform your home.
