If transforming your home has been on your mind, but you don’t want to spend an exorbitant amount of money, think about replacement doors! While new siding or a major interior remodel will certainly make a noticeable difference, many homeowners don’t realize how even a subtle change can and will revamp your living space.

New replacement doors are an excellent and cost-effective way to update your home. You can replace a single door, such as at the front or back of the house, or you can replace every door in your home. The choice is yours and the difference replacement doors will make in your home is sure to leave you grinning from ear to ear.  

First, think about your homes curb appeal. One of the major focal points of a home (from the outside) is the exterior door. It is part of the whole picture and probably the first thing anyone notices when viewing or approaching your home. In an article published by Better Homes and Gardens, a new front door will beautify your home’s exterior while simultaneously increasing the resale value. So, whether you’re in the market to sell your home or not, you can rest easy knowing that the money you spent on a replacement door will end up back in your pocket.

Depending on the age of your home, it may be time for a refresh. Home trends are constantly changing and styles come and go every day. You can easily accomplish a design modification with a new replacement door. Those solid oak doors on your bathrooms and bedrooms may have been a chic home design 30+ years ago. But today, many homes are taking on a lighter and brighter look.

Several homeowners are wanting to incorporate as much natural light as possible into their living spaces. A new replacement door, depending on the design, can certainly maximize the amount of daylight the streams into your home. If this matches your desire, try looking at door styles that contain large glass areas. There are some really beautiful exterior doors with stained glass configurations that will help you achieve more natural light with a warm, inviting setting.

If opening up your home to the outdoors is something you desire, you can achieve this. Believe it or not, there are doors meant to expose parts of your home to the great outdoors! French doors, for one, are a perfect example. Not only do they let in huge amounts of sunshine, but they have been designed specifically for opening up into your yard. You can even consider French rail or sliding doors, as these are also meant to be left open - giving in to the natural elements outside. By installing replacement doors like these, you are inviting the beauty of the outdoors into your living space, which is sure to produce the wow-factor you’ve been searching for.
