  • We need a new front door

    On the proverbial list of things our house needs, there’s one specific thing has shot to the top of the list: a new front door.

    As you know, I’m no stranger to shopping for a new front door, do you remember the front door we installed in our last home? We stayed true to the era of the home by selecting a door that was more mid-century in style and design. For our current home I also plan to also stay true to the era of the house! This time we’re looking for something that is both modern and traditional, clean yet timeless.

    We live in a very quiet neighborhood surrounded by lots of nature, trees, and bushes, which offers a lot of natural privacy. I’m so happy because this means we can choose a door with a greater window-to-door ratio.

    Here are 5 front doors that are seriously inspiring my decision:

    Besides the color of these doors being pure perfection, the style is nearly exactly what I’m looking for! I love the thin trim and symmetry of 4 tall windows, and of course the brass hardware. You better believe we’ll have brass hardware on our new door!

    Again with the thin trim and unlacquered brass hardware! So good! I love these doors os much, but given they’re almost all window, they would probably work better for the back of the house rather than a front door.

    Love how these doors bring the outside in! more windows, the more you feel intertwined with nature, which is something I definitely am trying to achieve.

    Another stunning door design that would be perfect for the front! Keeping the trim minimal with only two horizontal pieces takes this otherwise traditional door very modern.

    This door above has been on my mind for a long time! It’s modern yet traditional and timeless, and that perfect ratio of window to door that I’m looking for.

    Which door speaks to you most? Would you choose door 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5? Tell me in the comments!

     

     

    1. #1 reads more “front door” but I absolutely love #2. The only hesitation with all windows is what is it looking in to! Do I need any privacy? Good luck! Love reading about all your renovations!

    2. #1 OR #5 would be amazing for the front! and I love the look of #2 or #3 for the back! All lovely options, Can’t wait to see what you decide.
