The saying goes that first impressions are everything, so in terms of setting the tone and character of a home the front door - touch point between your interiors and the rest of the world - is the place to start. The design and its furniture can be one of the easiest ways to revive the look of a tired exterior, while on a street of identical terraces the colour gives a stamp of personality. 

'Attend to the details, because they can really make a house sing,' says House & Garden's deputy decoration editor Ruth Sleightholme. 'The look and weight of good quality door furniture makes a far bigger impact than you would first imagine. It doesn't have to be the most expensive or ostentatious, but make sure it is well considered; that the design is good, the materials high quality, and that it works with the period of your building.'
