Although only a small part of your home, your entry doors are incredibly significant. They may be one of the first things guests notice about your home, and if you ever decide to sell, your front entry door will be one of the first impressions your home makes on potential buyers. Entry doors welcome friends and family into your home while protecting you from unwanted intruders. They can even help to insulate your home amid some very cold Kansas City winters.
If you’re replacing your entry doors this year, you’ll likely consider things like the color of the door and the material used. Here are a few ideas to spark some inspiration.
One of the first things you’ll want to ask yourself is what kind of material you want for your entry door. Wood entry doors have a classic beauty that many homeowners favor, but they require quite a bit of maintenance in order to stand up to the elements. If you want the beauty of a wood entry door, but without the frequent staining, you may want to consider something that mimics the look of wood. ProVia’s entry doors are made with fiberglass or steel but take on the appearance of wood. These doors are much more durable, offering better energy efficiency and stronger security.
Has your eye ever been drawn to a home by the bold color of their entry door? There’s a reason why red entry doors are such a popular choice. It’s the perfect way to make your home stand out, without screaming as brightly colored siding might. Red isn’t the only option, however. You can opt for a blue entry door, green, purple, or even something that looks a little more natural. With fiberglass entry doors, you won’t have to worry about constantly repainting, although it is possible if you decide to change the color in a few years.
Single or Double
Most Mission Hills homes feature single entry doors, and that’s a perfectly valid choice. It saves space on the front wall of your home, and it’s wide enough to suit most purposes. However, you may want a door that makes more of a statement. If that’s the case, consider double doors. Double doors give off a stately sort of elegance. They can also be convenient when it comes to things like moving furniture in and out of the house. Each series of ProVia entry doors offer both single and double doors.
