This entry door style doesn’t feature any glass on the door itself, foregoing it in favor of raised panels and patterns. While the door itself won’t have glass panes, sidelights can be added to invite in natural light.
This front door design has been making huge style headlines over the last few years. While craftsmen doors were first made popular with craftsmen houses, they look fantastic paired with almost any home. You’ll be able to tell a craftsmen style door by the panes of glass in the upper third of the door panel which are separated from the rest of the door by trim or molding.
The modern style puts a focus on clean, streamlined looks — and that holds true in this entry door style. Rather than having complex patterns, modern doors often incorporate one large panel of glass or a few small panels in the center of the frame. Typically, this is a polarizing look — most people either love it or hate it.
Quite possibly the most popular front door design, particularly when you want to draw attention to your house. The most standout feature of this style door is the ornate glass shapes in the middle of the panel itself. Some particularly ornate doors also feature metal detail work overlaying the glass. In our area, this door design is a particularly popular choice for contemporary and colonial homes.
Another niche design, rustic doors don’t have the same focus on incorporating glass into the door design as modern, craftsmen and ornate options do. If anything, rustic style doors will feature a few small windows near the top of the door like a craftsmen style. However, just because they have less glass doesn’t mean they are any less interesting. Rustic doors often feature a beautiful faux wood look that makes them stand out compared to every other door on the block.
