Reasons to Consider an Extra Wide Front Door for Your Home

If you are looking for an interesting and modern way to transform your home’s front entrance, you might consider purchasing and installing an extra wide front door. With a typical single front door width of 30-36”, these doors can be nearly double that width and give you not only a grandiose look to your home, but an entry where you can invite groups in at once or bring in the oversized furniture with ease. With modern style becoming more and more prevalent, extra wide front doors continue to grow in popularity.

They are wide and inviting, while also providing a sleek, modern appearance. These doors can make your home stand out from the rest but, rather than being over the top, they are often understated and sleek. Extra wide doors are often accompanied by sidelights so even the entryway inside your home will be brighter and will provide a more welcoming space to bring guest and visitors in. Because of the larger size, these doors might set you back a few more dollars, but they will make a huge difference in the appearance of your home.

Extra wide front doors can do wonders for your curb appeal. They have the ability to give your home a far more luxurious feel, and you can choose from many different styles. Pivot doors are a popular choice for many more expensive homes. Because the panels are so wide, pivot doors pivot on a box, rather than relying on hinges. The pin at the top and bottom of the door securely seat into the box and needs a little maintenance to keep it working smoothly, however that is not a major issue for any homeowner to accomplish. There are even manufacturers that create the strength needed to withstand strong winds such as a hurricane which helps keep your home more secure.

Wide front doors provide a sleek, modern feel, but even if it is not a pivot door, it can draw attention and feel very modern. Wide exterior doors also provide a better connection between the interior of the home with the outside landscape while also allowing for a wider entrance. When someone pulls up to your home, there is no doubt that with a wide front door, their eyes will land there first leaving little concern as to where the entrance is located.

Design Options

When choosing a wide entry door, you will likely purchase a custom door, so your options are endless. As stated, pivot doors continue to grow in popularity because of their modern and sleek feel. This is an interesting choice that can add a lot of personality to your home’s exterior. Often a wide entry door will provide the opportunity for a unique set of hardware too. Many wide doors have options for glass inserts which can be more lightweight than solid wood slab doors.

When it comes to the material that the door is made of, you will have every option, but remember that extra wide doors are more prone to warping, since they can also warp horizontally. Be sure to purchase a material that will last as long as possible to prevent warping. Fiberglass is commonly used in these doors due to its durability as well as being impervious to warping and the elements from the weather. You will also be able to decide if you want any glass as part of your door, and you can choose your hardware. Of course, be sure that all of your choices are appropriate for your home, style, and climate.

Tips

When purchasing an extra wide front door, be sure to consider what type of material was used to make the door. These doors are more prone to warping because of the extra width. They can warp both vertically and horizontally. This means that it is probably best to use a material that is more resistant to climate and moisture such as aluminum or fiberglass. A fiberglass door can be constructed so that it is more light-weight and durable needing little maintenance.

If you choose a wood door, be aware that you will be sealing it frequently. If you neglect this work, you’ll find that you have wood rot and may need to replace the door soon. With the extra cost incurred for the initial installation, do you want to do it all again? Remember the warranty probably states maintenance is required. Extra wide exterior doors do require more maintenance that an average sized door. When you are installing a wide door, you also want to consider balance. Consider balancing the door’s width with a glass panel above the door and perhaps sidelights. These extra features can provide context for the door and make your entryway feel much more complete.

When it comes to buying a front door, security is often at the forefront of your mind. Since the door serves as a physical barrier between the interior of your home and the outside, it only makes sense that you want something durable, making solid front doors an ideal option. Solid front doors don’t have the structural shortcomings of their hollow core brethren, which typically have a honeycomb-style cardboard interior. Instead, the internal material is denser and studier, making it harder to break through. Typically, solid front doors are constructed of wood or fiberglass/composite. Wooden solid front doors are either made solely out of pieces of wood that are precisely fit together or from a single piece of wood, though the latter option is significantly less common in today’s marketplace. Since fiberglass/composite is a moldable material, it is generally a single piece when complete. read more
