How to Decide on the Right Replacement Front Door

Picking out the front door of your house is actually a remarkably important thing. It is after all the first impression that many people have of your home, so it’s important to choose wisely. Making a good first impression is important and you can find the ideal front door for your home’s style with our team at Premier Windows


But what do we mean by replacement door? A replacement door is simply a door that fits the exact dimensions of the doorway you already have. A replacement for your old door without any sort of renovation or reconstruction of your doorway. We have a range of replacement doors available to you including doors available in uPVC and timber. 


Finding the right replacement door however is more than just about the aesthetics of your home, it is also about choosing the door that will improve your home’s security and its energy conservation while reducing the amount of noise from outside. When you’re planning which front door you want to pick, there are a few things that you should consider.


What Style do you Want?


Every home is different so you should choose your front door to complement the style of the rest of your property. This means picking out materials, designs, fixtures and fittings that all suit the overall style of your home. If you have an old Victorian home or something that was built in the early 20th century, then you might want to go for a grand front door, finished in a bold colour. This ornate style will emphasise the stunning architecture of your home. 


A more modern style of architecture would probably work best with a simpler, more neutral door, perhaps with a couple of frosted windows. Your front door is one of the first things a visitor sees and remembers and it can make a great first impression. As well as introducing your personal style to the front of your home you can use a replacement door to improve home security, energy conservation, reduce noise and increase natural light.


Consider the Materials


At Premier Windows, we specialise in timber, uPVC and aluminium front doors, so you have a number of options to choose from. Finding the right material is a really personal choice, especially as so many options can create that design you’ve been looking for. uPVC doors can look just as authentic and stylish as a timber door, with the added benefits of being low maintenance and easily adapted to your style requests. 


But if you’re looking for something a little more classic, particularly if you own a period property, then you’ll want to invest in a timber door. While they don’t offer the same security benefits as a uPVC door, they are the best-looking doors on the market. 


An easy way for you to make a decision about which material is right for you is to consider what type of door you have right now. Not only will it clarify the sort of door that will suit your home but will also give you an indication of what to expect from that material in regards to noise reduction, maintenance and security.


Here at Premier Windows, we have a broad selection of replacement front doors for you to choose from. These options can transform the front of your home, giving your guests the perfect welcome.
