Choosing Beautiful Interior Doors

Tips For Choosing A New Storefront Door For Your Business

Whether your commercial storefront is located in a steel metal building, a historic Victorian, or anything in between, it's important that you select the right entrance door. The right storefront door will look fantastic while also protecting your valuable tools and inventory inside from after-hours theft.

If you have been looking at storefront doors and can't decide which one to choose, then these tips will assist you:

Tip: The Style of the Storefront Door Must Match the Overall Architecture of the Rest of the Building

The first consideration for your new storefront door should be the overall architectural style of the rest of the building. The door you choose should look like it was installed when the building was first erected. If it looks like a retrofitted door, then the style isn't correct.

For example, a metal building or Main Street storefront may look great with a traditional glass entry door. However, this same style of door will look wildly out of place if you install it into a historic, Victorian-style building.

If you are struggling with which doors are appropriate for which style of building, walk around your local area and look at the doors installed on other buildings with a similar design to yours. If there aren't any, then look online for other buildings of similar architecture. 

Tip: Install a Metal-Core or Solid-Metal Door for High-Security Buildings

If your business manufactures expensive products or houses expensive tools, then you should only install a metal door or a door with a metal interior core sandwiched between wood or another material. Metal doors are nearly impervious to thieves and offer you the absolute highest level of security possible.

Tip: Set a Purchasing Budget and Stick to It

Lastly, it's important to mention that you need to set a budget for your new storefront door and commit to sticking to it.

Once you start shopping, it's easy to get wrapped up in all of the various door options and hardware gadgets. When this happens, a relatively inexpensive door can end up costing many times more than necessary.

While your customers will use the door and may even admire it, it is ultimately just a door, and the budget and selection should first and foremost reflect this fact. Ultimately, you should spend what you need to in order to get the door you want, but don't overspend on hardware options you don't really need.
