As with many things in life, first impressions matter! The same applies to your home/house too. Your front door is undoubtedly what all your guests see first, right before being ushered into your home and having a glimpse at all your interiors, I.e furniture, paintings, etcetera!
With that in mind, it’s pretty vital that you get the ideal front door,one that will create the intended mood and impression, a teaser or sample of what lies beyond(inside the house). It should, in the few seconds that it’s graced by your guests or passersby, hint about your all your tastes and preferences!
There are several guidelines to help you out on this, all of them basically revolving around the scheme and/or theme of your home. Your intention should be a door that complements your homes interior, so make sure you have the following in mind when purchasing your front door:
Material:The material used to make the door can match some or most of the furniture or other interior decor pieces inside, e.g a glass sliding door opening up to a house adorned with glass themed furniture/decor, like glass tables and stools, even an aquarium! Light or “transparency” will remain etched in the guests minds!
Colour: Wether your bold or shy when it comes to colours, feel free to use your door to let your visitors know what to expect once inside!
Actual and Visual texture:Use this to complement whatever theme you have on the inside,e.g a brushed,brown door look for a countryboy theme, matching the tables, chairs and even the roof support beams or ceiling!
Size:A large door opening up to an almost empty house won’t make any sense, would it? Nor would a comparatively tiny door a lavishly furnished home.
Visual security statement:Don’t protect what you don’t have! A door meant for the bank’s entrance will have you looking like a paranoid person if you don’t have interiors worth alot!On the other hand, a simple, ordinary swing door will have you looking negligent if you have things of great value inside!
Now that you know that the Front Door for Home Reflects Home’s Interior: Choose it Right!
