Your front door matters

Published

on

A new front door costs usually at least Ksh 10,000 and goes up from there. Front doors can be installed yourself or you can have them installed by a local hardware store. If you are getting a custom-made door it is important to make sure that you check not only the price of the door but the installation fee as well.

Working on a budget

There are a few quick and easy ways to update your front door in a matter of minutes. First off, you can hang a wreath or some sort of seasonal decoration on the door. Even if you have an uninteresting door, this small decoration instantly boosts its appeal. You can also surround your front door with additional decorations.

Painting that door

Painting your front door is a great way to update your home exterior quickly. It is also a nice way to change the way your house looks without repainting the entire thing. Since painting a front door is usually inexpensive and takes only a couple of hours, you can get creative. The possibilities are endless; don’t be afraid to have a little bit of fun. Each time you paint your front door you can also consider changing up your hardware. A different handle or even a fancy knocker and change the look of a front door dramatically.

Consider the style

It is best if your front door matches the style of the exterior of your house. While some mixing and matching of design styles can create visual interest, it is important to have some cohesion. If you have a cottage-style house, then a wooden barn door could be a nice design style choice. Don’t let the design world limit what you choose for your front door, but it is important to think about how your house looks as a whole before deciding on a front door design.
