How To Give Your Entrance A Modern Touch

Modernise Your Entrance

There’s no disputing that first impressions really count, particularly where our homes are concerned. Like everyone else, you will have made a rapid judgement of a house at some point and done so just on how its entrance looks.

A smart entrance will often earn a house lots of compliments, inflate its resale price and, if it’s yours, make you feel that bit of pride each time you see it.

Door installation

Being such a strong focal point, many will choose to replace their current front door when looking to update an entrance, and there are so many different replacement doors on offer at Speedy.

One of our designer doors will modernise your entrance, increase the overall kerb appeal of the property and leave it massively transformed.

It pays to pick a novel colour for any new front door, so keep away from white, unless you want something traditional, and go with a grey shade, a real contemporary favourite. Just so you know, you can have a dual-coloured door if you want a different finish, inside and out.

Wide range of colours


You don’t need a big bank account or hours and hours of dedication to spruce up an entrance. Some plants framing your new door may be all that’s required.

It’s popular to have immaculately trimmed and preened topiary trees at each side of a front door, to offer an example of what you could do.

This fits in with the minimalist aesthetic, which has far more appeal than doors with too much greenery around them.

Dress your door

Door accessories

There are so many styles of door furniture for our numerous collections, including several varieties of handles and knockers.

Your traditional door knocker would often have a lion’s face or some other animal-inspired design, but your modern door knocker can be something as simple as a chrome ring or bar.

A classy touch is to also have an oversized number plate, which can either be present on the door or be installed on the wall on either side.

Finishing Touches

Just think ‘simplicity’ when it comes to overhauling an entrance and make a couple of changes that have a strong but subtle impact.

We can plan a new front door with you. Just book an appointment with Speedy and let’s organise a door for the ages.
