The first thing you see when you come to a home is the front door. It sets the tone, theme, and style of your house immediately. How do you go about selecting a front door design? No pressure!
The front door is the gateway of a building. How do you want guests to feel when they approach and enter your home? It is worth investing time and money into selecting a front door that fits your style. Especially if you have invested money into the interior of your home, you won’t want to skimp out on this final feature. This article will share four gorgeous front door designs that will blow you away.
Wooden front doors will never get out of style. In terms of materials, they are practical. However, they also give you the opportunity to get nearly any type of style, design, or color of your choosing.
If you want your front door to blend with your house style and color, you can select a dark, warm color of the wood. This gives off a calming and natural look. Rustic doors typically appear very dark, or very light and worn. You can add to your design by placing a small glass window in the center of the door, with small metal bars that go across it in a unique pattern.
Consider taking your rustic wooden door to the next level by adding stained glass pains on each side. When selecting a front door, don’t forget that you must choose which way it opens. For example, you can have a door that is one piece of material, which opens one way. The alternative is having two smaller pieces that meet in the middle, both opening independently of each other.
There are endless possibilities when it comes to selecting a front door design. Let your creative juices flow by involving the arch of the entrance. If your house already has this design, it can be easy to work with.
If your property already has a small step up to a platform where guests first meet the front door, you can create an enchanting entrance to your home through this tucked-away nook. Consider adding exterior molding to the front of your house directly in front of the door.
From here, you can add vines that will continue to grow along the front of your house, creating a beautiful ambiance to your entrance. The actual design of the door can embody this theme too. Old wood with original patterns can be a great fit for this entrance. You can research vintage doors and find an original door online.
Glass Pane Design
Does your house get enough natural light during the day? By choosing a front door with large glass panes in the design, you can maximize sunlight in your home. Especially after 2020, when people work from home, interacting with natural life throughout the day is very important.
You can enjoy sunlight, while also taking in beautiful sites from outside through your front door. Now, if you prefer your privacy, you can select special panes that outsides cannot see through and vice versa. The choice is yours!
The design of your front door sets that stage for how people experience your home. Get creative, and select the right style that fits your preference and overall theme.
