What Do You Want Your Front Door to Say About You?

Old Town Alexandria, VA

During a trip to Old Town in Alexandria, VA. I immediately noticed the doors on each of the beautiful, brick, historic houses. They were hard to miss as each one was so different from the next. I couldn't help but immediately think they were showing off the character of the families that lived behind them. 

Does Your Front Door Express Your Personality?

The front door is often the first detail people notice walking towards a home. It's also a telling detail about you. So, be creative with your door and have it tell your story.

Local Companies

There are at least three local Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti companies who can assist you with picking out a custom door to match your needs and personality, as well as with the door's installation. Check them out below.

  1. The first thought that popped in my head about the Hildene Manor door was that it was a university or campus building. Just seems to have that "look." I've hauled away lots of doors in my time. They can be a unique feature. I don't think many people realize this.

  2. Hi Brad, I completely agree with your input, including the part about the Hildene Manor looking like a campus building due to its door! With large home improvement stores that often carry a limited amount of door designs, it is easy to forget doors don't have to come in one shape and color. Customized doors add such wonderful character to a home, and they are very much worth the investment.
