Choosing the perfect front door for your home is very important. It is not only the first thing your guests will notice when they visit your home, but it can also have a significant impact on your home's curb appeal and energy efficiency. As a result, it is important to think about all of your options. We understand that selecting the best front door for your home can be a difficult task, which is why we have compiled the ideal set of tips for selecting the ideal front door for your home.

1. Security

Because the front door is the primary barrier between your home and the outside world, it is important to select a door that provides a high level of security. It is recommended that you choose solid wood to improve your home's security, which is why the Estate Crown Front Door or the Hardwood Hayes Front Door are good options. Both are very appealing wooden front doors with the Hayes having a modern finish and the Estate Crown having a more traditional look.

2. Measure Your Space

One of the most important things to do before purchasing a new front door is to measure the space where the door will be installed. This ensures that you have chosen a door that will fit perfectly and will not require any major modifications. Our front doors are available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate you and your chosen space, allowing you to find the design you want in the size you require.

3. Take Style Into Account

When selecting a front door, it is important to consider style. The design of your front door should complement the architecture of your home as well as your personal preferences. At Door Giant, we have a wide range of styles to choose from, ranging from Victorian to Modern. In addition, we have a large selection of wooden front doors, all of which have excellent craftsmanship and are extremely durable. If your home's style is more modern, the Modica Grey Front Door is an excellent choice. This modern front door is ideal for more contemporary homes, with ladder-style centre panels and a stunning dark grey material.

If you prefer a more traditional look, the Malton Victorian-Style Front Door is a great choice for country homes and features leaded double glazing panels as well as raised moulding. This traditionally styled front door, with a green front face, is sure to complement your older property.

4. Look for Quality & Durability

A front door is a long-term investment, so it's essential to choose one made of high-quality materials and built to last. At Door Giant, we offer front doors made of wood, glass reinforced plastic, and weather resistant materials. All of these are built to withstand the elements and last for years.

5. Consider The Function

Because the front door is your first line of protection against the outside world, it must be perfectly secure. This is possible with our security options, including our External Premier Front Door Set. This premier front door set includes everything you need for a sleek looking, well protected front door, including a Venice polished stainless steel euro lock, a polished chrome door viewer, a polished chrome door chain, and much more.

6. Pay Attention To Hardware

The hardware on your front door can make a big difference. Door knobs, handles, and locks can have a significant impact in the overall appearance. With this in mind, we provide a diverse range of hardware options from which to select the perfect match for your door. The Circular Pull Handle Set includes everything you need for a modern looking front door, with its simple elegant design and Venice polished stainless steel euro lock. 

Following these tips will allow you to select a front door that is not only functional but also enhances the appearance of your home. Before making a final decision, remember to take your time and consider all of your options.
