A home’s front door is a welcoming portal.
It is the curb appeal centerpiece.
When you think about it, the front door of a home is the entrance. It is the way in. Front doors lead to the treasures that lie within: a sparkling home that’s inviting and warm.
If you are a buyer and you approach a home with an eye to purchase, one of the first things you notice is the house’s front door. A front door says so much about the house and can set the tone for the rest of the home.
–Is the front door shabby in appearance? Is the paint peeling? Does it have a screen door that sags and has holes in it? If it is made of metal, is it rusting? Does the door hang well in the frame? Is the door handle old and chipped? Is the color of the door unappealing?
–Is the front door an attractive style and color? Does it have personality that says come on in and stay awhile? If not a new installment, has the door been newly painted and repaired? Is the hardware new and updated? Does the frame around the door match the rejuvenated condition of the door itself?
