If you are in the market for a Pittsburgh on your lot builder or if you have already selected Parry Custom Homes to build your new home, chances are there are a lot of ideas for your new home you have saved online or have floating around in your head at any point in time. A really important part when building your new home, is taking into consideration what your guests will see when they first walk to your front door before even entering your home. First impressions are something you only get one shot at, and the same goes for curb appeal of your home.
The front door sets the tone for your new home. You can either lure your guests in or bore them with lackluster detail. Your front door should be inviting and give the feel of “come on in!”
First, be sure that the front door matches the architecture of your home. Investing in a great door is worth the extra expense, since it creates a big impact.
Once you’ve selected the perfect door for the entry of your home, be sure to frame the entryway. The easiest way to think of doing this is to think if you were to snap a photo of your front entryway, would it be framed beautifully or fall flat? An easy way to frame your front entryway is to add planters on either side to balance the door. Wooden planters are a great idea to consider for your home.
Be sure to install hardware that matches the style of your home for your doorknob and other elements that match your personal style and gives a strong first impression.
Next, lighting is a huge part in a welcoming entryway. Not only is lighting your front porch important for safety reasons. It’s always a good idea to install motion detector fixtures at the corners of your home, especially the driveway and main access points. Lights add warmth and friendliness to your entryway, so invest in some beautiful light fixtures to showcase your beautiful new home.
Lastly, use a doormat with personality. You can choose something funny or just something that leaves a kind gesture. Whatever you choose, it will add to the welcoming nature of your new home.
