The entrance to your house is as important to creating a positive image as is the state of your carpet or your kitchen. In centuries past, front doors were made from solid timber and were largely a means of keeping unwelcome guests at a distance.
In the late Georgian period, these timbers were painted a forbidding black or dark green. Today, however, while security remains a priority, the best front doors also set the tone for the entire house and those who live in it.
