The First Impression of Doors


Apart from keeping unwanted guests out, doors can also help maintain comfortable temperatures in your home and also keep the elements at bay. Apart from such practical purposes, doors also serve an aesthetic role and can quite literally make or break someone’s first impression of your home.

Curb Appeal:

When you first approach a house, the front door is one of the first things that will catch your eye. Even if the entire front exterior of the property is well taken care of, if the entry door is not in top shape, it will ruin your home's curb appeal. And as they say: first impressions are everything.

Creating a Theme:   

Entry doors come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. When choosing an entry door and even a patio door, it's important to consider the theme of your home. By choosing the right design and color to match your existing windows, you will enhance the current style. Accent lighting and decals allow homeowners to add even more style and character to their home.

Interior Aesthetics:

The right front and patio doors can make a significant difference on the interior and exterior design of your home. Just imagine all that extra light and the lovely view of your patio and garden! Patio doors are popular for their capacity to add extra light to the home without sacrificing energy efficiency. With the right doors you can let in light when you need it most without ever worrying about heat loss in the winter or letting the hot air in during the summer. You can choose whichever design you like the most in order to maximize your view when you spend time indoors. Not only will a lighter, brighter home appear cleaner and more spacious, but it will also have a remarkable effect on the mind and body.

Setting the tone:

The front door to your home helps set the tone for the rest of the house. As you approach the front door, you will get a sense of what to expect once you enter the home. For example, an old door or a door that has clearly been neglected can make visitors feel like they are about to enter a poorly maintained, or even dirty property. It's not the most inviting of experiences and you may find buyers reluctant to show express interest. On the other hand, if your front door is in good condition, your visitors will immediately expect the rest of your home to be well-organized and tidy. By choosing a particular color or design, you can create any look you’d prefer. For example: you could choose a brightly colored door to show your fun side, or you could opt for a darker color to show off your sophistication.

There are endless possibilities!

This the second time I used Northshield. They replaced five windows and two doors. Work was done efficiently and accurately. Would recommend it to all my friends and family.

Northshield replaced 9 windows in our house. Our only complaint would be that the colour doesn't really match the sample we were shown. The woman we first encountered in the showroom was pleasant and helpful. There are only so many things she could tell us in the showroom but it was enough to convince us to book an appointment with a salesman. Walter, the fellow who came to our house, wasn't really a salesman at all and yet he knew exactly what he was doing. Answered all of our questions, clearly knew his business inside and out, was patient with us, made some really helpful suggestions, and just generally made us feel confident and comfortable. Next came Vladimir. He came to do the final measurements and to verify the details of each window. Another very very knowledgeable guy. Clearly an expert in his field and yet friendly and patient with us. The team of men who came to do the install were all very much polite and professional. Their workmanship is first rate. In the end, what I know is this, the new windows are in, the drafts and rattles from the old ones are gone, the price was fine, the quality is A1, and every single individual along our journey was a genuine pleasure to work with.
