Your Front Door Tells A Story
Updated: May 18, 2019
"Don't judge a book by it's cover" is a common phrase that I often borrow to teach clients about the importance of their front doors. The reality is, we DO judge books by their covers. In fact, there’s a profession specifically dedicated to book cover design so that book covers can adequately reflect the author and the content inside the book. All that said, the cover sets the tone for what we expect to be inside.
Like a book cover, your front door is the very first impression others have of your home. It’s the first thing they see up close, touch, and interact with when they visit and is the anchor that sets the tone for the rest of the ensemble that happens within. And because our homes are often a reflection of who we are and what we value, the front door becomes a centerpiece that shares our message to our visitors.
So what message is your front door saying about you? What would you like it to say? Is the door complimenting the style of the home or lacking in style all together? From color and style to accents and accessories, there are many different ways you can communicate a message from your front door.
