Go Bold with Your Front Door!

There are many ways to increase the curb appeal of your home. You can alter the lighting, invest in new paint and trim, or put in a major landscaping feature. But one of the simplest changes you can make is to do something different with your front door. Here are some ideas:

    • Pick a color with “wow” factor. Dull gray or beige front doors are a dime a dozen. So why not go with a bright color like yellow, red, or purple? Another idea is to select a glossy color like royal blue, crimson, forest green, or something else with a reflective sheen that adds character to your home.
    • Opt for contrast instead. If you prefer more traditional colors, you can still achieve a bold presentation for your front entry. Paint your door jet black and pair it with white trim and molding. The contrast will be eye-catching and appealing.
    • Bring out the wood. You can also go with the solid wood option for your front door. Popular choices include, poplar, cedar, ash, maple, red oak, Douglas fir, mahogany, birch, or walnut. Wood doors evoke a timeless sophistication that increases your home’s grandeur.
    • Build a window to the world. Many homeowners like the inviting look of a full-size pane of glass on their front door. It’s a favorite of people who have attractive foyers or wall art near the front entry. If privacy is an issue, install some blinds on the inside so you can close off the world when you want to.
    • Make the glass half full. If a full pane of glass makes you feel exposed, then just choose a front door with a half-pane (or less) of glass at the top. You can even select frosted or decorative glass for a distinctive look without reducing the natural light that spills in.

    • Make your glass stained. For a signature piece, choose an intricate stained glass front door in a colorful and/or complex pattern. You can pick out your template, colors, and caming to create a fabulous entry door that perfectly reflects your style.
    • Design your storm or screen door. An outer door doesn’t have to consist of a dull, lifeless screen. Invest in a screen door with bold patterns, lines, or curves. This is an ideal option for homeowners who don’t want to change their current front door at all.
    • Get new hardware. A subtle improvement can be made to your front door simply by changing the handle or knob. Pick out a piece that is stately, radiant, or whimsical. Add a matching deadbolt lock to boost your safety and your facade. You can even put up a knocker as an exclamation point to the design.
    • Run the numbers. Finally, you can tweak your front door with some address numbers on or near it. You can pick a font and style you like and then place the numbers on the door above the entry, or even on the archway.

A bold front door can turn the heads of people who walk or drive by your home. And relatively speaking, it’s an improvement that’s easy to complete at a reasonable price, yet comes with an impressive return on investment. So before you spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a complete facade makeover, don’t overlook the increased curb appeal that can be achieved simply by changing your front door.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
