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!

 

At NorthShield Windows and Doors, we have a wide range of doors including Steel Doors and French Patio Doors. All of our designs will ensure that your visitors will be impressed by your sense of style.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
