Why replace your front door?

If you are looking to sell your home in 2024 or increase its value, the good news is that there are lots of home improvements that can increase your property’s appeal and value.

Properties with kerb appeal are those that grab you as soon as you set eyes on them. While the old saying that it takes house hunters only a few seconds to decide whether they will put in an offer on a property is a little exaggerated, first impressions matter.

The door to new opportunities

If you need to improve your property’s kerb appeal, a new front door should be top of your list. The door should match the style of your property; for example, as much as you may love an Edwardian-style stained glass door, this can be jarring to the eye if you live in a modern build. Similarly, if you are lucky enough to have a period property, a white uPVC door can reduce the kerb appeal. Homeowners could also consider matching the style and/or colour of their front door to their garage door to provide visual coherence.

Don’t stop at the exterior

While not adding to the property’s kerb appeal, replacing internal doors can improve the living experience and the value. This is especially true for doors in the kitchen and living areas. Well-made bifold doors Stroud, which are available from companies such as, are both fashionable and timeless.
