First Impressions Count!

Posted: by October 20th, 2017

Believe it or not, but when faced with selling your home, having a nice front door is becoming more important to attract viewings and boost sales potential!

Property hunters frequently use front doors as a barometer to what lies inside.  As a general rule of thumb (and through browsing hundreds of properties daily), we’ve found this is a pretty accurate judgement.

It’s also a good gauge as to the personal taste of the homeowner and what you can expect in terms of interior choice and home décor.

Choosing the best paint colour will depend on the style of your house, as well as the overall impression you want to make.  Bright shades tend to work well for contemporary homes, while rich, royal shades complement more period properties. 

We’ve selected our favourite homes for sale on PropertyPal with front doors which we think stand out from the crowd.  Forget about hiding behind the ordinary and give your front door the attention it deserves.

Bold and colourful front doors typically emphasise a modern and fun element to house design, which is then translated inside the home. Even if your property is more traditional, front doors are frequently being used as pieces of self expression to add character and charm.  A fresh coat of paint can brighten up the interior of your home, so why not experiment with some bright and exciting colours for your front door as well?
