Choosing the perfect custom interior door
What’s the Difference Between an Exterior Door and an Interior Door?
Exterior doors – also often called “entry doors” – are usually more ornate and decorative than their indoor brethren. Since they’re often exposed to the elements, they’re also usually stronger and more secure than the average interior door. Sturdier locks, deadbolts, solid wood or metal construction, reinforced kickstands – you want to make sure your home is protected from the elements and intruders alike. We also offer a range of weather-resistant pre-finishes and finishes to protect your entry door from moisture and ultra-violet (UV) damage.
Creating a Custom Exterior Door Design
But how to choose from all the materials, finishes, fixtures, and styles available from our custom exterior door designs in Little Rock? That’s why our design team is on-call to help walk you through the design process until you’ve created the door of your dreams. But we know that sometimes you like to have an idea beforehand, so here are a few things to keep in mind as you design your entry door.
Consider Your Home’s Style
If you have a mid-century modern home, you probably shouldn’t settle for a gothic Victorian doorway. Likewise, a modern door can look strange in a more ornate doorway. Consider the lines of your home, the entryway leading to the door, and the landscaping you have framing the entrance of your home. More modern homes may benefit from a sleek, all-glass look, while a restored farmhouse feel can be complemented by a heavy, natural wood-grain door.
If you’re not sure about the style of your home, just ask one of our designers! They’d be happy to walk you through the different options and play with how each design can change the look and feel of your curb appeal.
Consider Your Privacy Preferences
If you hate the idea of people being able to see into your home, an all-wood or metal door, or perhaps a door with a small privacy window, may be the best choice. If you always keep a perfectly manicured entryway and you want the world to know it, glass doors may be right for you! Fall somewhere in between? We also offer frosted and textured glass options that allow light to shine through, but keep an observer from seeing any details of what’s going on inside your home.
Think About the First Impressions You Want to Make
You only get one chance at a first impression, so consider carefully before selecting your exterior door. Consider whether you’d like to highlight your landscaping, your roof, or some other aspect of your home, or if you’d like the entryway to be the main focal pint of your home.
To complement the overall style of your home and landscaping, but still make a statement, you may like a more traditional style and design of door – but with a pop of color! Bright colors and interesting textures can make even the plainest of doors an interesting eye-catcher.
If you’re looking for a real wow-factor or a statement piece, consider a double doorway! There’s nothing grander than being able to throw the doors wide when you welcome your guests. We have glass, wood, and sliding door options that can work with any style of home. You could also go with a more decorative door as a statement piece. Stainglass inlays, wooden carvings, interesting shapes, and metal trimming can all take a door to the next level and create a real statement about your home.
