When spooky, creaky front doors are scaring away trick-or-treaters, it’s time to update your front door! All exterior doors face more wear-and-tear than interior doors; they also perform a more important job as the front line of defense for your home.
Fall Front Door Inspiration
To update your front door for fall, add a fall wreath and decorate with lights, pumpkins, mums, and other seasonal decor. For Halloween, add some spooky elements to great all of your trick-or-treaters!
Door Styles: Decorative Glass Doors
Glass doors become a glowing focal point for your home at night and an elegant feature during the day. Custom glass designs come in a multitude of patterns to achieve just the right look for your home. In the fall, glass doors make your house look warm and inviting, exuding the light of your home on darker evenings.
Many homeowners want the elegance of glass doors but are worried about privacy. Frosted glass, stained glass, rain glass, and other kinds of patterned glass can protect your privacy while still letting light through.
Glass also can be designed into windows above and around your actual door to make your home’s entrance more grand and to let in more light. The windows next to your door are called sidelites, and can be installed in most homes along with a door replacement project.
Door Styles: Colorful Paint
Fall colors get their moment in the sun year-round with colorful accent doors. Yellows, blues, and reds are always popular, but colors are a great way to freshen up your curb appeal in any season. Depending on the tone you want to set, different colors can make your door welcoming, warm, or sophisticated.
Typically, if you’re looking to repaint to improve the look of a worn or damaged front door, you should replace the door instead. Damaged or warped doors won’t keep in your air conditioning and aren’t very secure, so old, chipped paint can be an indicator of a low-quality door.
Door Styles: Double Door Entrances
Depending on how much space you have, double doors can elevate the look of your home. Double doors are a sought-after home feature since they are less common and have to be built into the structure of your home. Double doors are a great investment in its value and beauty.
If you have the space for a double-door entrance, it can be a great asset to your home, as it makes for much easier access when you are moving large furniture or other items in and out of your home.
Door Styles: Warm Wood
Wood tones in any color can warm up the feel of your curb appeal to make it feel more inviting and cozy. High-quality wooden doors are secure as well as beautiful and come in endless styles to suit your home.
A solid wood door is going to be more expensive than other door materials, but solid wood is a sought-after material, and will be not only aesthetically appealing to you, but also a financial asset to you if you ever want to sell your home.
