Whether you’re updating your existing home, building a brand new one, or renovating one you’re moving into, you need to be sure that your house is a reflection of your style, taste and personality. One easy way to do that is with your entry door. Learn more about the different kinds of doors to best choose the entry door for your Winnipeg, MB home, and use these tips to help you find it.
First, make a list of what’s most important to you when it comes to your entry door. To do that, ask yourself questions like:
- What is the style of your home?
- Are you worried about privacy?
- Do you want more natural light in your entryway?
- What type of weather exposure with the door have? Direct sun or lots of rain?
- What’s your personal style?
Once you know what’s most important to you for your entry door you can start explore door styles. When choosing your entry door you need to make sure it matches with your house’s overall style. It’s always safe to choose a door that matches your home rather than a current trend. Trends come and go, but your home will most likely have the same overall style throughout the years to come. Here is a list of common entry door styles and what home styles do they go with:
- Traditional – Traditional or classic doors generally have features like raised panels, moldings, and glass inserts with either simple or decorative glass. They look great with homes in Edwardian, Victorian, Colonial, Cape Cod and other more traditional styles.
- Craftsman – Craftsman doors are some of the most popular, as they match with many different kinds of homes from Craftsman or Bungalow to Prairie, Cottage and even some Ranch style homes. They have lots of straight, simple lines and usually feature a rectangular window toward the top of the door or raised or flat panels.
- Modern – Modern doors are set apart by straight, clean lines, and an overall minimalist feel. They match with Modern and Mid-Century Modern style homes.
- Rustic – As the name denotes, rustic doors are charming in an old-world way as they are commonly made from rustic woods such as Knotty Alder or Andean Walnut and have iron elements such as iron grills and clavos.
- Arched – Arched entry doors are perfect for when you want to make a statement. They match with Mediterranean, Tudor, Southwestern and Spanish style homes, and are most commonly made with Round (true radius), Segmental (eyebrow shape), or Elliptical arches.
These are just a few of the many different kinds of entry door styles you can choose from.
