First impressions count! So, when it comes to your home, the front façade of your property needs to look the part with arguably the most important element being the front door.

The key to kerb appeal is in the detail

After all, if you’re trying to sell your house then prospective buyers, are likely to be eyeing up your front door while waiting for you to answer.

If your front door is looking a little tired or dishevelled then it’s a relatively quick and easy job to give it a face lift. As well as considering a fresh coat of paint – giving you an opportunity to re-think the colour – you should also look at updating or replacing the door furniture.

There are a surprisingly wide range of fittings available; everything from door knockers and letter plates, to handles, door numbers, bell pushes and lock pulls amongst other items. It’s therefore important to achieve a harmonised look and feel by selecting door furniture that works well together and in a style that complements the character of your house.
