Choosing the wood

One of the benefits of hardwood front doors with glass is that they do not require as much maintenance as one would expect. While wooden doors are known for their overall ease of upkeep because they do very well at adapting to natural wear and tear, it is important to pick the right wood for your region. If you live in a humid climate, it is crucial that you choose a wood that naturally resists moisture. The two best wood options for humid climates are oak and mahogany. An added measure to prevent unnecessary weathering is to coat your wooden door with a polyurethane sealant. Be sure to apply the sealant before you install your door so you are able to get all of the door’s edges and corners. If you apply sealant, upkeep will simply require a re-application of the sealant every few years.

Forget Faux Wood

Hardwood doors are expensive. This is not necessarily a negative as real wooden doors are sturdier and provide better insulation than cheaper doors made of other materials. However, if you happen to stumble upon a wooden door that does not come with a high price-tag, be wary. Real wooden doors are expensive, but they are expensive for a reason. Because real wood is dense and heavy, the door protects the home from intruders and the elements very well. Real wood, while pricey, will also save a homeowner money over time due to its great insulation properties. Additionally, real wood, with proper upkeep, maintains its gorgeous appearance over time; whereas faux wood wears down and cracks.

Glass choice matters

Once you have decided on the kind of wood you’d like your door to be made out of, you need to decide on the glass that you would like installed in your door. If you have privacy concerns, for example, consider frosted or stained glass to keep people from looking into your home. To increase security measures, be sure that the glass is double or triple-paned so it does not break easily. Further, consider the location of the glass in your hardwood door. If you want your door to be as secure as possible, for example, find a door with glass that is not situated within arm’s reach of the interior lock.

Higher Home Value

Do you think about the value of your home a lot? Well, if you have ever considered selling your home, this is something that should be on your mind. If you want to sell your home for the highest price, you need to increase your home’s value. By choosing hardwood front doors with glass, your home’s value will most likely go up.

You may want to pass on a great home to your children because this is where you chose to invest your hard-earned money and give them the best inheritance you could.

Doors With Speakeasy Opening

What sets doors with speakeasy openings apart from other exterior doors is the presence of a small opening covered by an openable interior panel and an exterior grille. The interior panel, functioning as a small door, gives the homeowner the ability to look out onto the porch without having to open the exterior door and without having to keep a glass panel in the door that always exposes the interior. While the term “speakeasy” relates to the prohibition era of the 1920s and early 1930s, doors with speakeasy openings can look appropriate in homes that don’t mimic the designs of that period too. The appearance can be incredibly rustic, reminiscent of mission styling, and even slightly medieval in the most classic iterations. Variances to the grille and overall door design can make doors with speakeasy openings work with traditional exteriors as well. read more

New Style Front Doors

For those who appreciate a more modern or contemporary aesthetic, new style front doors can allow you to express your personal style while improving your curb appeal. While other styles can share some of these aspects, like Craftsman, new style front doors typically lack the distinct panels found in those designs. Additionally, any wood grain featured in the doors tends to be incredibly linear, forgoing the knots and variances found in many traditional, rustic, or Craftsman doors, though that can vary depending on the wood used. But wood isn’t the only material option as new style front doors can also be constructed of fiberglass/composite or steel. New style front doors can feature glass, though the inserts generally adhere to the more significant rules associated with the modern or contemporary category by avoiding intricate designs. read more
