How to Choose a Front Door Shape

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.

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.

The front door of a home should invite the eye. As the part of the façade you interact with regularly, it has special status, and a door that doesn’t draw attention to itself makes for a very plain, unfocused, and often unappealing exterior. So, take a step back and imagine the view from the curb! There are plenty of ways to make your entry stand out with style—here are some of the most popular.
