How to Choose the Right Front Door for Your Home

How to Choose the Right Front DoorYour front door says a lot about who lives inside your home. After all, it is often the first impression that guests and passersby get of your home, so you want to be sure that the first impression is a good one. Unfortunately, if your front door is banged up, dingy, or outdated, that might not be the case! If you want to instantly enhance the entire look of your home’s exterior and wow all who approach it, a front door replacement may be necessary. With all the dizzying amount of design options available, how can you know where to start? Consider the following factors to choose the right front door for you:

Material and Manufacturer

Most modern front doors are made of either fiberglass, steel, or wood—and for good reason. These materials are excellent for entry doors for the bevy of benefits they provide, including exceptional strength, low-maintenance durability, security, and energy efficiency. Not all doors are created equal, however. You’ll want to choose a manufacturer that will produce your fiberglass, steel, or wood front doors using masterful craftsmanship and attention to detail, so you can get the most value for your investment.

Architectural Style

Your front door should fit in architecturally with the rest of your home. For instance, if your home is more traditional, perhaps a classic six-panel door is right for you, whereas homes with more minimalist designs can benefit from doors with sleek lines and expansive glass panels. Whatever your home’s aesthetic, you should choose doors with elements that complement it.


Like with any home investment, you’ll want to factor in both the short and long-term costs of your front doors, so take into account factors like energy efficiency, maintenance, and life expectancy before you make a decision.
