Front door appeal is an important aspect for custom homes. The entrance to your home should make a statement, so select a beautiful, solid front door and surround it with complementary trim (again, think proportions: do not put wimpy trim around a heavy, ornate door). Your door handle set communicates quality and precision. This may seem like an insignificant item, but I recommend spending the money on a quality brand for a fully-mortised handle set. You will feel quality when you press the thumb latch.
