Tips and tricks for door replacement

Whether it’s your front door, your patio door, or even a back door; doors play an important role in the aesthetic that guests have when coming into your Eau Claire home. When you decide it’s time to replace your doors, it typically means you are ready to improve your home’s curb appeal or that you are just ready for a change in home atmosphere. Either way, replacement doors are a big decision and call for a few things to remember. Lucky for you, the experts at Pella Windows and Doors have a few things to consider before you determine the final new door style:

  1. Style with decorative hardware. Complete the style of your doorway with decorative hardware on your door, such as door hinges, bells, and knobs.
  2. Add a splash of color. Speaking of curb appeal, why not emphasize your door with a pop of color? Colors that match your current paint scheme are great and harmonious, but colors that provide contrast 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 spotlighting specific features, landscaping, or the door itself, suitable lighting can bring a whole look together and feel warm and inviting to house guests.
  4. Enhance with plants. The function of greenery about a doorway can also make an excellent first impression. Plants can shift attention to certain door details and shift attention away from other unfriendly aspects of a doorway.
  5. Try new accent features. There are many extra features that can add a lot to a door, such as sidelights, decorative glass, small windows and more. With the perfect accents, your door and home can be given a major facelift.

Accept guests into your home with an attractive doorway and make a great first impression.
