Choosing the Best Front Door for Your Home

Choosing the Best Front Door for Your Home

A front door isn’t just an entry into your house – it’s the portal into your home, and is a great space to let your personality shine through. The outside of your home will make a big impact on any onlookers, and the door might be the most important factor of all. In order to make a good impression its imperative that your house has a strong, well maintained door that alines with the style of the property, as well as set the tone for what’s inside.

It’s a big decision when it comes to changing your front door, or choosing one for a new property, and not one to be taken lightly since it’s what you’ll be coming back to every day. But don’t worry, we’re here as joiners in Ely Cambridge, Newmarket and Soham to help you make the perfect decision. 

Obviously there’s multiple factors to consider: price, design, security, size. Let’s take a dive into each factor to help you make your decision.


Although having a budget in mind is a good idea, focussing solely on price is never the place to start. It’s important to have quality be your primary deciding factor, as if you settle for the cheaper option you’ll likely end up heavily compromising on materials, insulation, security, and aesthetics. That’s not to say that you can’t find quality doors for good prices, you just have to know what to look for. If you find anything personally, feel free to send us what you find and we can give our opinion of the quality and longevity of the door.


The design of the door ultimately falls to you – obviously we can provide advice or make suggestions, but it’s your decision. The main thing we would suggest is to ensure consistency with the age of your house – try to choose something in keeping with the period. Get in contact with us if you have any design ideas and we can give our opinion


Lock-picking is mostly a thing of the past, but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be protecting yourself against it. To cover all areas when choosing a lock you’ll need to make sue it’s anti-pick, anti-snap, anti-drill and anti-bump. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. Again, send us any doors you are thinking of and we can give our opinion on the safety of the door. 


Most people make the mistake of assuming that all doors are the same size, but this is not the case. Measurements will need to be taken to ensure you should the right style and size. With us at The Cambridge Joiner, you can choose normal or bespoke sizing, and contemporary, modern, period, or customer style.
