Front Door Idea – Add an oversized handle to draw attention to your front door
People are always trying to increase their curb appeal and set their house apart from the rest on the block. While it can be achieved with elaborate landscaping or a coat of paint, a subtle yet very effective way to put your house in a league of its own is a door with an oversized circular handle.

Circular door handles that match the rest of the exterior tie everything together and make it look unified and complete in a unique sort of way.

The curved nature of a circular handle also breaks up the harsh lines of a rectangular front door and can soften up lines in the entryway of a home.
