Exterior Doors

Practical protection meets divine design

One of the easiest ways to give your home a face lift and add curb appeal is to freshen or replace your entry door and any other exterior door that can be seen from the street, such as your garage door . In fact, painting these two to match can be an easy way to tie the outer décor of your home together. For an even more cohesive look, select doors made of similar materials and with similar textures or patterns. You could even add similar windows to both. (And, if you really want to bring everything together, you could have these windows reflect the shape of other windows at the front of the house.)

For a grand entrance door, consider a solid wood like mahogany or cherry. This has a rich, elegant feel to it, and the weight is very dramatic. You may have to have this specially made, but custom entry doors are an excellent addition to the exterior of your home.

Some homeowners also add a screen door to their main entryway. Usually, this goes on the outside of the main door, but there are options for the inside, too. Screen doors allow you to leave the main door open for better airflow or a more open atmosphere, while still keeping bugs, dirt and other outdoor elements out of your home.

If you live in an area with extreme weather, it's also important to add storm doors to your home. Just like a storm window, a storm door is installed on the outside of your regular door to add protection from wind, rain and snow.

Of course, while the front of your house might be your main concern, you will eventually want to deal with any other entry doors, particularly a back door leading to a deck or patio. Sliding doors are perhaps the most popular option for such entryways. A sliding glass door is an easy way to let light into your kitchen or back entryway, and a sliding screen door allows the fresh air in while keeping the bugs out. A sliding door is also convenient for children. Most sliding doors include locking mechanisms, and many come with the option of a metal reinforcing bar for extra security.

Front door: Your front door is one of the first things people see when they come to your home, so it is an important design feature. You may choose a solid front door, a front door with a small window, a front door with a peephole so you can see who is visiting, a full glass front door or any other style – predesigned or custom-made.

Front doors come in many colors but can also be painted to match the other elements in the exterior of your home. Many people also hang festive decorations on their front doors, so consider what you might want to add at holiday time when you are shopping for a door – is there room to add a hook without interfering with or damaging the door?

Back door: Back doors are often much the same in style as front doors, with perhaps less ornamentation. However, style is of greater importance if the door accesses a main room of the house or can be seen from the road or driveway. In s...
