What to Consider When Choosing a New Front Door

The well-chosen front door can be the perfect introduction to your home, giving visitors an initial glimpse into the character and style of what’s inside. Those on the lookout for a new front door are spoilt for choice with options, by how do you know if you have chosen the right one? We at Clearview 2000 are here to help with this list of some of the key things to consider when purchasing a new front door.


A front door does not have to just be functional, it can also look good as well. There are an incredible number of styles to choose from, so it is best to take some time to assess what style of door best represents the look and feel of your home.

Whether it be deciding on the right design, material, colour or any other specification, there is plenty to consider when thinking about the style of your front door. Visitors will treat your front door as a first impression of your home, so it is worth selecting a style that will wow them and leave an impression.


Perhaps the most important aspect of choosing a front door is how secure it will make your home. You might be surprised to learn about the many different security features available for front doors, so it is a good idea to explore your options.

Installing an auto-lock, strike box, peep hole or any anti-snap lock to your front door can drastically increase your house’s security. After taking precautions into consideration you and your family will have peace of mind, knowing your home is secure and everyone inside is safe.


One of the most personalisable components of a new front door is the wealth of accessories you can mix and match. Letterboxes, knockers, door knobs, chains, letters / numbers, door bells and much more. It’s important to consider these ahead of time, as some may not be easy to add once the door has been installed.
