Go subtle with a stainThis impressive wooden door is luxuriously crafted and beautifully stained in a black finish, allowing the wood grain to show through. The great thing about this look is that you can achieve it on an affordable scale by stripping down your existing door and using exterior stain from your local DIY shop. Alternatively, go bespoke and have a front door fashioned from reclaimed wood and then stain it black.

A wide, level entranceAccessible design works before you even enter the house. Graeme Cummings emphasises the importance of having ‘a clear opening with a level threshold’ at the entrance of a home. The doorway and the hallways beyond it should also be wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair, if necessary. ‘Generally, door width is the most important consideration,’ says Graeme. According to Document M, the minimum clear opening width of an external door has to be 775mm or more. A canopied entrance is also a good idea, as it protects homeowners and visitors from the elements.

Front door sample, the window is too big and color is too dark but we like the few slates
