Published on

Whether it’s your front door, your patio door, or even a back door; doors play a central role in the first impression that guests have when coming into your Cape Cod home. When you choose that it’s time to replace your doors, it usually means you are willing to enhance your home’s curb appeal or that you are just eager for a change in home ambiance. Either way, replacement doors are a big investment and involve a few things to keep in mind. Lucky for you, the professionals at Pella Windows and Doors have a few things to take into account before you decide on the final new door style:

  1. Style with decorative hardware. Complete the style of your doorway with enhancing hardware on your door, such as door hinges, bells, and knobs.
  2. Add a splash of color. Speaking of curb appeal, why not accent your door with a pop of color? Colors that match your current paint scheme are great and harmonious, but colors that provide distinction to your scheme can make your home look unique!
  3. Experiment with lighting. People often underestimate the power of lighting in an entryway. Whether you’re highlighting specific features, landscaping, or the door itself, proper lighting can bring an entire look together and feel cozy and inviting to house guests.
  4. Enhance with plants. The use of greenery about a doorway can also make an excellent first impression. Plants can shift attention to certain door details and distract attention away from other unpleasant features of a doorway.
  5. Try new accent features. There are many additional features that can add a lot to a door, such as sidelights, decorative glass, small windows and more. With the right accents, your door and home can receive a major facelift.

Greet guests into your home with an appealing doorway and make a wonderful first impression.
