Getting started with front door ideas

Choosing a new front door comes with excitement - and a lot of possible choices. Browsing front door ideas is a great place to start when looking for inspiration and information, whether you’re working on a new build or renovation.

For many homeowners, when starting on this journey, the initial focus is commonly on what the door will look like. After all, aesthetics & kerb appeal are a key background motivator for undertaking a front door upgrade or when planning a new dwelling.

As the journey to buy a new front door evolves, functionality and security have come to the forefront and before you know it, making the right door choice means getting to grips with a lot of detail that you might not have even been aware of before! 

How in depth your door journey is really depends on each individual project, personal preferences  and of course budgets. Where budgets are lower, a less bespoke, ready-made door in something like UPVC might be preferred. 

Where budgets allow for more freedom and preferences lean towards more of a statement, a specialist, custom-made door will likely be the order of the day.  

The front door idea articles contained in this section above cover a range of topics and are geared towards those seeking a more bespoke, exclusive type of door (because that’s what we make at Urban Front!). 

Regardless of which budget category you fall into, the topics will give you great starting points to get your thought process going.
