Best entrance door styles for a front porch
Whether you already have a porch or you’re thinking about installing one, there are a wide variety of entrance door styles to choose from. The style you choose will depend a lot on the type of property you live in. For an older property, you’ll want a more traditional style. For modern homes, a contemporary style will be best.
Personal taste will also play a part on your decision. You may want to replicate the style of your neighbour’s homes or alternatively, create a unique entrance to your home. There are hundreds of styles to choose from. The first thing to decide is which material do you prefer.
Composite or uPVC?
If your priority is maximising security, a composite door is for you. Composite doors are an excellent choice if your porch features lots of brickwork with perhaps one or two small windows. A porch creates an extra layer of security for your home. When fitted with a composite door, would be burglars will think twice before any attempts at forced entry.
If your porch is fully glazed or features large glazed sections, a uPVC door will best suit your home. uPVC entrance doors from Majestic Designs are cost effective, energy efficient, and provide excellent levels of home security. Your uPVC entrance door can feature as much or as little glass as you want with a range of hardware to choose from including handles, knockers, and letter plates.
Styles and colours
Whatever style of property you call home, we’ve got the perfect entrance door for your porch. For country cottages and barn conversions choose a solid panelled door with small eye-level diamond shaped glazed section. To admit a wealth of natural light, go for a fully glazed door with uPVC frame. For period properties choose a Victorian style composite door with half-moon glazed section, and for modern or new-build homes choose a full length panelled composite door with chrome bar handle.
When it comes to colour, personal preference is as important as your home’s style. For a traditional look, choose from a range of authentic wood effect finishes including Golden Oak and Rosewood. For your contemporary composite door choose a bold colour such as Rich Red or Black, or for a unique look opt for Turquoise Pastel or British Racing Green.
