Front Door Furniture

By Alice Turnbull 1 month ago 1640 Views No comments

When it comes to the front door, first impressions really do mean everything. Front door styles, colours and furniture tells the visitor, family members or postie something about your taste and style. As the main entrance to your home, the front door gives a great impression to your home’s aesthetics within. The main focal point to the exterior of the property, front doors and the furniture’s they hold, may even enhance the curb appeal and future property sale price. For those who are lucky enough to have a detached home, it is often easier to showcase your style and identity, however for terraced or semi-detached homes, front doors are the only way to mark your individuality and style. With so many front door choices, colours and furniture designs, it is often easy to get overwhelmed with the amount of choices. Not to worry though, we have created this handy front door guide which will provide you with all the information you need, whilst also inspiring you!

Always remember, as a rule, there are no rules. Do what suits you, your style and your home style.

It certainly has been a strange start to the year but as we remain indoors, our minds have been ticking over what we can do to upgrade, renovate and update items and rooms in our home. That got us thinking, with a new year, new me mantra, we have been intrigued by what interior décor trends might be popping up this year.

Yet 2021 will bring with it more natural, warm organic tones and will celebrate the raw materials that the world has to offer. So here are all the trends that you will be seeing as you scroll through Instagram and Pinterest.

Who would have thought that as we blissfully celebrated NYE 2019, we would be plunged into a new decade with trials and tribulations which would shock not just the UK but the World.
