How To Modernise The Entrance At Your House

Modernise Your Entrance

When you viewed your home for the first time, the entrance to it probably played a factor in you buying the property. It’s such a big focal point and often what determines the first impression of a house.

Over the years, your entrance may not look quite how it did and have aged slightly. If that’s the case, don’t leave it like that!

Give it a makeover to make it visually appealing again, renew kerb appeal and also improve the value of your precious home.

Change your front door

It’s your front door that people will strongly notice when walking to your entrance, so if it looks like its best days are behind it, check out the replacement door range we have at Trent Valley Windows.

The impact it has will be instant. Our colour options are broad, with a colour palette that includes white for fans of tradition, and also various shades of grey if you want your new door to look ultra-fashionable.

You may find that two colours take your fancy. In this situation, just request a dual-coloured door so that you can have one of the colours internally and the other externally.

Wide range of colours

Put plants outside

If you buy a new door or you don’t, it’s a good idea to display some plants outside of it to frame the design and add some colour.

The go-to plant for lots of householders in this situation is the topiary tree – you will see many front doors with a pair of topiary trees on either side. They need to be well preened.

Don’t turn your door into a full-on plant sanctuary though. One or two plants will do the job nicely.

Dress your door

Door furniture

You need to fully accessorise a door during the design process and each of our door products has its own suite of hardware, including a varied selection of handles and door knockers.

Those who are fans of traditional hardware will be pleased to know that we have knockers with animal faces, and contemporary lovers will be similarly delighted with our simple chrome bars and rings.

Follow the trend of also having an oversized number plate added to the door, or it could sit on a wall next to it.

Finishing Touches
