Making a good first impression starts at the front door

Making a good first impression starts at the front door
November 6, 2015

Your front door and hardware reflects your home’s style and should come across as inviting.

Using colourful tiles or repainting your wooden door a bold colour is a sure way to add extra personality to any entranceway. Plants or décor that match your personal style add a welcoming touch too. Be sure to keep it free-flowing, by placing them so they don’t clutter or obstruct the door way. Adding full-length windows to the left or right side of your door will let light into your home and make the area appear larger.

To improve the look of your front door, you might also want to consider fitting a lock from Yale’s digital door locking range. This stylish range of locks create an instant look of sophistication, not to mention allowing keyless entry using pin code, fingerprint or card access. Alternatively, pair a sleek pull handle with the latest digital deadbolt from Yale, an easy-to-install DIY product available from all good hardware retailers.
