En­trance “Make sure the en­trance is prop­erly lit, cov­ered ap­pro­pri­ately to pro­tect the house from sun, rain and wind, and that the se­cu­rity mo­tion­sen­sor (if you have one) is in the cor­rect po­si­tion. Fac­tor in stor­age in­side the door such as wall hooks, a con­sole, or small closet.” Belinda Gra­ham, ren­o­va­tor/blog­ger, The Happy Home; www.the­hap­py­home­

Door “A great front door with qual­ity hard­ware is im­por­tant. It’s seen from out­side and in, and it’s usu­ally the main ac­cess point for all vis­i­tors and fam­ily mem­bers. Con­sider what style, colour and fin­ish of door works best for your home, and make sure you get the right one for your ren­o­va­tion.”
