When replacing interior doors, most people walk into a home improvement store and pick the first one that catches their eye. Before committing to replacement doors, you need to ask yourself a few questions, like what materials you want, the style of the door, and how much you want to spend. These questions will help you understand what would be best suited for you. Let’s explore a few questions you should be asking yourself before replacing your interior and exterior doors.
What Style Best Suits Your House?
Matching the style of your doors’ style with your home’s style makes it look coherent and natural, boosting its attractiveness. While mixing styles may look good, most of the time, we have seen it to be more beneficial and increase the happiness of individuals who stick to the style of their home.
If you have a modern, minimalist house, you should go for slick, minimalistic doors rather than a door with inlaid stained glass. You should get doors that complement the highlights of your home such as features like dentil shelves, decorative glass, door shape, and grille patterns, can improve your style.
What Materials Should You Choose?
The material of your door could make or break the aesthetic of your home. The front door is the first items guests will notice when they arrive at your home, so choosing the right material is important to ensure you love it.
- For front doors, wood is one of the most popular materials. Wood provides a classic and rich look to any home, but it is a bit more expensive than other options and requires regular maintenance to ensure durability and long-lasting use.
- Steel doors make for great exterior doors because of their incredible strength. They’re also incredibly durable and energy efficient, ensuring areas that may experience multipole weather conditions are always covered and not spending more money heating or colling your home. Also, steel doors can be transitioned to any color to match your home’s aesthetic.
- Fiberglass doors are a great, affordable wood alternative with minimal maintenance. They’re also incredibly energy-efficient and durable.
