Door Decisions




Your front door says a lot about your home. It's the first impression visitors get when they come to call and it should appear welcoming and inviting. It also reflects the style of your home whether that's traditional or contemporary. We are building a European style home in the mountains of Utah and I need to choose my new front door.
I wanted something like this with windows flanking the side but my builder says the front entry is not wide enough for that.


He suggested a door with a transom window over the top to let in some natural light but I think the proportion looks awkward.

I like this look, but it may be too Mission style-ish  for the rest of the house.

The details on this door are beautiful.

 I am clearly drawn to arched doors!

I think this is my favorite with the diamond shaped leaded glass.

What are your thoughts? Which door looks the most inviting to you ?
