How to Choose Rustic Glass Double Entry Doors

If you have a significant amount of space in your entryway, double entry doors can be an excellent option for taking advantage of the additional room while adding drama to a space. Not only do you have a larger opening to navigate when coming in or out of your house, but you can also make the doors themselves a feature.

Rustic glass double entry doors are ideal for those who prefer a country or industrial aesthetic and want sunlight to penetrate into the entryway. Often, wood is the favored material when you are going for a rustic look but other options, like steel or fiberglass, can also be appropriate.

There are also multiple glass finishes to choose from, including:

  • Clear
  • Frosted or Textured
  • Stained

Each of the above options can work beautifully with a rustic door, though may impact the total cost.

Available Views

Glass is normally used in double entry doors to allow light into the interior and take advantage of any view. Typically, you have three options when it comes to the amount of glass: high view, mid-view, full view. High view options have the least about of glass, with the panels typically occupying no more than the upper half of each door.

Mid-view rustic glass double entry doors have panes that take up around three-quarters of each door while full view features the most glass. Any of those options can be used in a rustic double entry door as the remaining structure is often what defines the overall style. However, using larger glass panes does decrease privacy, so it’s important to keep that in mind when choosing your rustic glass double entry doors.

Materials

When most people picture a rustic door, their first thought usually involves wood. Wood is an excellent option for rustic glass double entry doors, particularly due to its durability. Plus, you can choose to either paint or stain the wood, giving you the widest selection of finish options. However, it’s important to note that wood doors tend to be more expensive and require more maintenance than most other materials. Since the wood needs to be protected from the elements, regular painting or staining and sealing is required to maintain its integrity.

Alternatively, you can look for rustic glass double entry doors made from fiberglass or steel. Since these materials can be shaped and molded, and even designed to mimic wood grain, you can find rustic options available. Plus, they don’t require the same amount of maintenance and typically cost less than wood.

Security

Double entry doors are inherently a bit less secure than single entry doors. The fact that they latch in the center creates a weak point, and an intruder could kick that area to compromise the lock. However, if you add a security bar or door stop bolts, you can make your entryway less vulnerable.

Since there is glass involved, you also need to make smart choices from a security perspective. Double-paned glass is harder to break than a single pane, causing the door to be more secure. Plus, double-panes also increasing energy efficiency, a nice feature that can help keep your heating and cooling costs more reasonable throughout the year.
