The front entry into your home is the sneak peek into the wonder that is waiting within. It creates the first impression and can be a wonderful opportunity to express you and your personality. The grand entrance of your home will be the first and last thing anyone sees when visiting. Keep in mind that if you are looking to sell in the future it could also be a turning point for potential buyers.
Smaller timber frame trusses or bent systems that match your timber frame interior over your entry door or as an extended cover over your entry is a great way to welcome guests into your timber frame home. A tiny curve or accent that mimics the style of your front door could provide just the right amount of texture and flow that you desire. The goal is to create a warm, covered, comfortable landing with good lighting for safety and convenience.
A brightly colored door would really stand out, make a bold impression, and add a bit of personality. By taking a color from your brick fireplace chimney and using it for your door color, combined with your beautiful timbers it could complete your exterior perfectly. Windows the full length of the door on each side would open up the space and seem to make the entry a bit larger. Double doors would also make for a wider and more open entrance. A detailed accent window, perhaps a round shape or half moon shape would fit perfectly above your door within the space of your extended timber frame trusses.
