Adding Curb Appeal to Your Home – Front Doors

Curb appeal is a must and there are many ways in which you can add real curb appeal to your home, including the selection of the perfect front door. Front doors are an important feature of your home, for not only are they essential for home security but they’re also one of the very first things that visitors will notice about your home when they arrive, so choosing the right front door for your home is also important because it helps you to make a great first impression.


As there are many different styles and types of front doors to choose from, you will need to make a number of decisions when selecting new front doors for your home. To help you make sense of the many decisions you will need to make, the following tips will help you to select the perfect front doors for North London homes, doors which are not only attractive and aesthetically appealing but also strong, secure and durable, which are some of the many qualities that you will need to look for.

Style and Aesthetic Appeal

It’s important to remember that this isn’t the only thing that you’re looking for in new front doors, though it suffices to say that choosing a new front door that delivers the right style and aesthetic appeal is an important consideration for all homeowners. Consider the style and design elements of your home, any existing embellishments and, of course, the colour, as you want to select a colour that brings out the very best qualities in your home.

Front Door Materials

There are a variety of materials to choose from, with uPVC, aluminium and composite doors three of the most popular choices. Here’s a quick look at each.

  • Aluminium

A great choice for many reasons, aluminium front doors offer excellent insulation, strength and variety, so you’ll have a great range to choose from. Another great benefit of aluminium doors is that they’ll never need painting and won’t rust, which is why these doors often come with 20-year warranties. They’re a great investment for security as well, as they’re very resilient, especially with the right locks and deadbolts fitted.

  • Composite

Composite front doors usually mimic the appearance of wood and have a lot to offer homeowners looking for a new front door. Affordable, strong and great in harsh climates, especially humid climates, composite doors will deliver many years’ service and are available in a wide range of styles.

  • uPVC

A very popular choice in London and cities that are no strangers to wet weather, uPVC doors are strong, attractive and offer excellent insulation. What’s more, as they’re not prone to warping like wood doors, they’re a great selection if your home best suits a wood door but the weather doesn’t make it a viable option.

Adding curb appeal to your home is easy and there are a number of different front door varieties – aluminium, composite and uPVC – which would make a great choice for your home, whether it’s modern or contemporary in style.
