The first impression your home gives from the street is key to how your house is perceived. And at the very center of curb appeal is your front door and overall home's appeal. It's where you welcome the world to your home and it sets the tone for your entire house.
When it comes time to selecting an entry door, it is important to understand the various materials and style options available to enhance your home's aesthetics and complement its architectural style. Because the main entrance commands so much attention, manufacturers are making it easy to create a custom, yet affordable entry door. Here are some of our favorite eye-catching, green designs to give your home lasting curb appeal.
