The Power of a Front Door: January 2014

January 2014Tip of the month: Casing (also known as trim) on a front door can make a huge difference!

One of the things that makes this door so pretty is the casing, or trim around the door. Interestingly, the front doors of many houses do not have casing.

It’s easy for a contractor or carpenter to add, and relative to most home improvements, pretty inexpensive – especially given how much it adds to a home’s curb appeal.

Check your front door. If it doesn’t have casing, consider adding it. Take pictures of doors with casing.  I recommend selecting houses similar in style to yours. Show the photos to your contractor / carpenter.
