Doors aren’t given much thought until it’s time to purchase or update them. However, the front door style you choose is the first impression of your home. When guests come by your home what sort of impression do you make on them? Is your home warm and inviting? Do you exude strength? These revelations can be achieved through the design and front door style on your home.
What color do you choose? Each color evokes a different feeling or has a suggested meaning to them. For example, red in Feng Shui (an energy balancing system used to bring about good fortune) means ‘welcome.’ Blue signifies a calm, peaceful space. Black projects power and strength. Which feeling do you wish to evoke as visitors approach your home?
Is your home inviting? Do you evoke warmth with well-groomed plants or flowers framing your doorway? Do your light fixtures have bright lights that wake your guests up and prepare them for a party or are they soft and glowing letting your guests know you like calm? Do you keep a wreath on the door that you frequently change letting neighbors know you like to change things up a bit? Stick with elements that reflect your personality.
How inviting is your home from the driveway? Do you have a walkway leading up to it surrounded by butterfly bushes welcoming nature as well as guests? Are trees overgrown so that it’s not easily accessible? Is this a way to encourage them to use the garage instead? If so, perhaps your focus can be on a more inviting garage door.
If your style is completely unique then you can implement unexpected details. Choose a front door style that is mostly glass then you can use it as a frame for an interesting piece of furniture inside.
The most important thing to remember is that every detail you choose for your doors reveals your personality. You could stick with the traditional options and let guests know that you go with the flow. If that’s not you, then it’s time to perk up your front door and add some personality to it.
