Choosing a Fitting Door for Your Historical Home

Therma-Tru Classic Craft Artissa Collection in Mahogany Grain

Far from old-fashioned or out of date, homes with historical style are coveted by many. They offer unique appeal owing to their origins—the region where and time period when their architecture was developed. If you have traditional tastes and find yourself renovating a historical home or building new construction with older, classic style, finishing it authentically will bring out its personality best. Start with the front entrance—it’s a natural focal point and helps set the tone for the whole house!

Functional Front Door Innovations

Therma-Tru Impressions Integrated Storm and Entry Door System

The front door of your home plays a number of roles—not only does it allow passage in and out, but it’s a major focal point that creates a first impression from the street and even affects property value. If you’d like to add more practical, everyday value to your front door, we have some new features to consider!

Bold Front Door Colors That Pop

Therma-Tru Smooth-Star in Ruby Red

Whatever sort of home you have, and wherever you live, accenting your façade with a front door that stands out is a great way to add curb appeal. The entry not only naturally draws the eye, but it’s also a relatively easy and inexpensive area to add some color. It’s no wonder the front door has been the place to highlight on homes throughout history! If you’d like to make your entry a bold point of interest, here are some color ideas to consider.

How to Choose a Front Door Shape

Fiber-Classic Oak Collection

It seems like such a simple thing, but the shape of your front door has a huge effect on the façade, so don’t overlook this factor when selecting finishing products for your home. The entry can stand out alone or mirror other outlines around the exterior—like gates or windows—to create a balanced picture. If you’re looking to add some interest and curb appeal, here’s what you should know about choosing a front door shape.

Front Doors with Chic Minimalist Style

Therma-Tru Classic-Craft Visionary Collection Walnut Grain

Anybody who loves the streamlined aesthetic of modern design will be happy to know that the building industry continues to serve up beautiful finishing products for the style. As this architecture simplifies structures down to neat silhouettes—think basic shapes rather than complex ones dressed up with decorative elements—you have only a few key parts of the façade to work with. The main entry takes the most attention, so make sure it’s the highlight it needs to be! Here are a few ways to make your modern home stand out with a stylish yet minimalist door.
