They say to always put your best foot forward when meeting new people. For homes, your exterior doors serve this very purpose. It’s often the first part of your home your visitors will come into contact with and it’s important to ensure that it’s always looking fresh and clean.  This is why homeowners take great care in choosing their entry doors.

 

There are so many factors to consider that it can be challenging to make a decision when it’s time to replace your entry or patio doors. Let our experts at Woodbridge Home Exteriors walk you through some of the best exterior door options that will always allow you to put your best foot forward when welcoming your guests.

Traditional Homes

For doors and windows, “traditional” is an umbrella term that covers several architectural styles. This includes Cape Cod, Colonial, and Georgian homes, among others. These doors tend to favor glass panels, the number of which can range from two to twelve. It’s also not uncommon to see intricate scrollwork and patterns etched into the glass of these entry doors. In some cases, colored glass can also be used to better tie the door with the rest of your home’s design.

Rustic and Craftsman Homes

Large, imposing, and Shaker-inspired entry doors are a staple of rustic and Craftsman design. These doors are typically wood or wood-stained fiberglass, that offer great durability in the high-humidity environment of mountains and woods, places where Craftsman cabins are commonly found. Their designs lean more on straight solid lines to break the often hardy aesthetic of this style.

Modern Homes

Straight lines in entry and patio doors are also favored in many modern style homes although their use is distinct from conventional Craftsman houses. Glass panels can get frosted or blocked if there are any used at all, and colors and patterns are simple, straightforward and minimalistic.
