Trendy to timeless, understated to elaborate, the door provides a warm welcome. There is a sharp contrast between the interior and exterior doors. A door has an aesthetic purpose in creating an impression of what lies beyond.

The Most Popular Front Door Styles:

Classic-style doors may feature raised panels in any number from two to twelve. They may also feature glass inserts with scrollwork or colored panes. These styles are traditionally available in wood, metal, and fiberglass options that are pre-hung and ready to install after purchase. Custom options for traditional doors are also available. This can be especially helpful if you are looking to achieve a particular design or if you live in a home that does not have standard size door openings.


Craftsman-style doors are made from wood or fiberglass and often feature straight lines with a Shaker-inspired look. Craftsman doors could feature one window at the top with stained glass or black- or wood-outlined panes and two or three rectangular-shaped raised panels across the bottom. Another popular option for Craftsman doors is a large glass insert that offers a more generous view of the outdoors. As with the other styles, custom options are available.


Straight, sleek lines are also a frequently found component in modern-style front doors. Additionally, you may find blocked or square raised panels or panes of frosted or translucent glass. Minimalistic in their manner the hardware seen on modern doors tends to follow the same style of clean lines.


Frequently seen on cabins and homes that feature wood, stone, or brick exteriors, rustic-style doors are often made of wood. They may be arched or in the traditional rectangular form. Because many rustic doors have a thickness and a demeanor that suggests hardiness, you may find bulky, oversized hardware that accompanies them. Raised panels, scored lines and clear glass are other features commonly found on rustic doors.


While arched doors may fit into a variety of styles including traditional, craftsman, and rustic, their curved design gives them a distinctive look and appeal. These doors will more than likely be a special order or custom-made to fit your home’s exact specifications. The curved style offers an eye-catching architectural feature with loads of charm.
