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 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. 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.

Style

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.

They provide a sleek, modern feel, but even if the wide door 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.

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.

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. 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.

If you choose a wood door, be aware that you will be sealing it frequently. 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 sunlight shines into your living room, kitchen, or entryway on a nice warm day it can produce a beautiful sight. Your pet loves to just lay there in the sunlight and watch the outside action or take a snooze. The sunlight shining through can also be uplifting and energizing. This is especially true for those who may spend more time than average in their home, because it really allows the outside beauty to find its way in. Choosing a full glass door will allow you to enjoy this to its fullest extent. You’ll have a wider view of who is ringing your doorbell. It also allows you to connect with the outdoors without having to worry about things like insects or wind. However, there are considerations that should be taken before purchasing a door with glass such as privacy, the safety of the area around you and even the style of the glass door that you will choose. A beautiful new front door that has a full pane of glass could be an invitation to would-be intruders, but you’ll use a double pane glass panel made of tempered glass that is very difficult to break, but still looks great. read more
