Why your home needs a grand entrance (door)

Why your home needs a grand entrance (door)

You may have come across the statement that a house is only as good as its entrance. I, for one, believe this to be true. As the head of purchasing at Ross’s, I’ve met my fair share of customers looking for entrance doors in Perth; they’re looking for a quick and easy way to improve their entrance at an affordable price.

Your entrance, or rather your front door, is often the only thing that neighbours and guests notice when entering your home –  and it is the basis of their first impressions, so it seems logical that searching for entrance doors in Perth is the starting point for many customers. Take a good look at your front door. Are you pleased with what you see? If not, maybe it’s time you should consider getting yourself a new front door?

There are several benefits of having a great entrance to your home and in this post I will list out some of the reasons why your home needs a grand entrance.

1. Increase curb appeal

The most common reason homeowners in Perth purchase a new entrance door is to increase the curb appeal of their home. If you’re looking to sell your home, then I strongly suggest you look at the answer to my questions above. If you answered no, then do you think potential buyers will think any different? No.

Your entrance door is what forms the first impression about your home’s worth in people’s minds, so by installing an attractive entrance door, you can dramatically increase the appeal of your home, with guests, as also with prospective buyers. Moreover, you get a great chance to make your home more inviting when renovating your entrance.

2. High returns on your investment

I know for a fact, that many of my customers view their entrance as a great investment opportunity. Replacing your entrance door can certainly prove to be a costly affair, but the returns on this investment are incredibly high. Even if you’re not planning on selling your home anytime soon, replacing your entrance door will definitely pay off in the long run.

While a good looking entrance often catches attention, if your entrance door is energy efficient, it will further boost the overall value of your home. This is certainly a great way of increasing the resale value of your home.

3. Better security

One of the most important reasons Perth homeowners – and many of our home renovations customers – seek a new entrance door in Perth is for better security. I for one want my family to be a safe, and the best way to go about doing this is to have quality doors and windows installed. You will be surprised to learn that most burglars break into homes through the front door itself. According to SafeWise.com, around 33% of burglars enter through the front door, so it certainly is worth the investment getting a sturdy door which cannot be broken down easily. The same site also mentions that hollow doors are extremely easy to penetrate and kick in, which is why it pays to have a quality entrance door.

4. Feng Shui

The ancient Chinese Feng Shui philosophy also pays particular emphasis on having an attractive and welcoming entrance door. This philosophy states that in order to harmonise yourself with your surrounding environment, your entrance door or entrance plays a vital role.

A grand, welcoming entrance is said to increase the flow of positive energy, money, opportunities and people in your life. You may not be a believer of Feng Shui, but a large number of people do so. To leave a positive impression in the minds of your guests, or prospective buyers for that matter, you should certainly have a welcoming entrance to your home.


It goes without saying, the entrance of your home is extremely important. Not only do guests and potential buyers form a first impression from your entrance, it also has the ability to offer many other benefits. Such benefits include increased curb appeal, higher returns on your investment, better security for your family and if you believe in it, better Feng Shui.
