Whether you’re looking to sell your home or just wanting to add your own stamp to the exterior, a new front door is a quick, easy and relatively cost effective way to improve the appearance of your home.
It’s true that most potential buyers will decide if they don’t like a property before they even step inside. So it’s always a good idea to make the front of your home as attractive as possible before putting it on the market.
Here are our top three tips for making the best out of your entrance.
Industry experts say that a green front door is the key to a quick sale. Why? Green is said to symbolize renewal, growth, and of course nature, making it a perfect colour to welcome guests to your home.
However, green might not be the right choice for you. It’s important to make sure that you consider other external elements before deciding on the colour of your new front door. Contrasting colours can look great, but you should also think about the colour of your brickwork and window frames; you wouldn’t want your new door to clash would you
Luckily, with Residor there are an abundance of colour options available. You can choose one of our six standard colour options, or from over 250 different Ral colours, so you’re sure to find something to suit. www.residor.co.uk/colours
When choosing the door style you should also consider the age and appearance of your home. Do you live in a country cottage, an urban apartment, or a Victorian terrace?
Britain’s most popular door style is the Toton 2. It’s traditional in appearance but with its two glazed units you’re able to modernise it with a contemporary glass design like Abstract, for example.
No problem if you don’t think that the Toton 2 will suit your style of home. There a variety of door styles available from Residor, so modern or traditional you’ll definitely find an option that’s perfect for you! www.residor.co.uk/our-doors
3) Zhoosh it up
A well-kept front garden can not only help you in selling your home, it’ll enhance the welcoming feeling that potential buyers get when they arrive.
Make sure the pathway (if you have one) is clear and that hedges are trimmed and looking tidy. You could try adding some foliage to frame the door way and a window box with some colourful flowers for added zhoosh. An additional extra would be to consider matching any planters to the finish of your door furniture.
