Underestimate A Frontdoor?

A front door is the focal point in the front yard.  The house & views into windows also.  Before ANYONE comes thru your front door their opinion is influenced.  


Door, hardware, windows are original to this early 20th century home.
.
Paint colors, height of knocker, paneling of door, which side the door opens, wooden grid of sidelights & transom, type of hardware metal, scale of door & windows.  A lot of creativity, work, aesthetics, historical consideration & more is understood in the 'conversation' creating this door.
.
Is your front door a focal point?
.
Is your front door so fabulous future owners, in another century, will decide to keep all of your choices?

We had two doors recently replaced. I painted them yesterday. Guess what color.

Sad to say - our front door needs a total makeover! It's on the 'to do' list!

You can decide......I am sending tomorrow pictures of my front door. I have never seen one I like as well. Of course; I copied it.

See what you think! And your readers!

Entrance gates were once an important 'statement' for houses large and small. Often they showed great creativity.
