How to Choose the Best Entry Door for Your Home
- 05 July, 2022
When it comes to changing an entry door, there are many high-quality options to choose from. Modern entry doors feature the latest advancements in security, energy efficiency as well as durability. Entry doors made of reinforced steel or fiberglass provide a beautiful door solution that will play an integral role in defining the particular style of a home for many years.
Today, it’s essential that a door offers more than just aesthetics. Entry doors should serve the purpose of insulating a home from the elements, while sourcing greater security, privacy and a stylish design.
So, how do you pick the best entry door for your home? Here are a few things to keep in mind:
The material of the door. Steel or fiberglass entry doors offer great durability and performance. Steel doors, while typically a less expensive option, provide excellent security and longevity. Fiberglass doors are more expensive but mimic the look of traditional wood grain without the maintenance of an actual wood door. Although steel doors can also be textured to simulate the look of real wood. Fiberglass provides superior thermal efficiency and insulation compared to steel. However, contemporary steel or fiberglass entry doors would greatly improve the insulation of a home relative to an older entry door.
The color of the door. Something that will complement your home’s exterior. Darker shades of paint or wood grains offer an interesting contrast with a lighter-color home and vice versa.
The style of the door. Something that fits with the overall look of your home. If you have a more intricately-designed facade, an intricately-designed door would mesh well with the rest of the house. Simpler doors with little to no embossments work well with toned down facades, creating a clear aesthetic flow. There are many hardware options that come in different compositions and finishes to supplement a door’s appearance.
The price of the door. You want something that’s affordable but also looks great. That’s why TopLine offers top-notch designs at different price points. Whether you’re looking for an intricate fiberglass door or a more basic and functional steel door, we have options that are sure to satisfy.
