Update your letterbox

Often looking worn or dull, letterboxes can quickly and easily brighten up your front door. Choose between fixing a completely new letterbox, or alternatively just purchasing a letter plate – these will fit over your current letterbox and give your front door a whole new look.

Upgrade your door knob

Why not opt for a brand new doorknob to transform your front door? Door knobs and door handles tend to get the brunt of the damage because using them every day and not taking care of them can result in a sad-looking door. Take your pick from antique cast iron or polished brass cottage door knobs, or go for a contemporary frosted crystal or satin chrome pointed door knob for your home. Alternatively, why not opt for a statement centre door knob to transform your front door?

Conceal your keyhole with escutcheons

Escutcheons can help make your front door appear smoother and smarter. Designed to surround or conceal your keyhole or door handle, they are generally circular but can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. To ensure your door is completely transformed, you can match your escutcheon with your new door knob and door knocker to complete the look. Choose a contemporary square or circular polished chrome or nickel escutcheon, or go rustic and traditional with a fleur-de-lys or antique-shaped iron escutcheon for your door.

Upgrade to a glazed door

If you’ve got a glazed front door; is your glass looking old and worn? To give your door a complete facelift, replace the glass! Choose from decorative, etched, obscure or clear glass and it’ll completely change your front door.

Opt for a new front gate

If your front door is accessed via a front gate, why not think about updating your front gate too? As well as a new coat of paint, why not add new hinges and latches to give it a fresh new feel – first impressions are crucial, so don’t forget to transform the walk to your front door too.
