Changing the Curb Appeal of Your Home with a New Custom Front Door August 12, 2014 There is a great deal of talk among real estate agents about curb appeal. While there are certainly going to be plenty of varying opinions on the subject –including what constitutes good curb appeal- one thing is agreed upon: it is important when selling your home. When a prospective homebuyer visits a house where the front lawn is brown, dirt, or there are no shrubs or garden areas out front of the house, then this is going to be immediately less appealing than a home that has a lush green front lawn, gorgeous stone paths, vibrant gardens along the house with mulch, and more. There are several things that you can do to improve the curb appeal of your home. One of them is replacing the standard, plain front door with a custom built front door. The importance of the front door. When considering selling your home, or if you just moved into a new house, the front door is going to be a crucial piece of the curb appeal puzzle. It’s one of the first aspects of the actual house that you or other people are going to notice. It’s the entry point for you and guests. In time, it will be more likely the entry point for guests if you have a side or garage door that you go through. Drive around Toronto and pay attention to the things that grab your attention at other houses. You’ll notice nicely kept lawns and those that are left to burn out. You’ll notice walkways and railings. And you will notice front doors. The color, size, and style of the front door will all have an impact on the home itself. While you may have a standard, plain front door, add vibrancy, security, and a more welcoming environment by considering a custom front door. A custom front door is one that offers you the features and benefits that you want.
