Whether you’re building a new home or replacing your existing front door, it’s important to choose the style that best suits your aesthetic. From wood to steel and fiberglass, there are a variety of options to consider.
Whether you prefer the durability of Legacy steel or the realistic wood-look of Embarq fiberglass, ProVia doors are custom-designed for your home’s needs.
Traditional doors feature panels in a variety of sizes and wood patterns. They complement colonial, bungalow, and cottage styles that are common in many neighborhoods near Columbia. A traditional front door can also make a statement with a double door, which creates a wider opening for welcoming guests or providing a focal point within your entryway design.
Wood doors offer a natural style that can’t be duplicated with fiberglass. They’re available in a range of panel designs, wood species, and stains to fit any home. This 4 Panel Traditional Wood Door from ProVia offers an array of customization options to bring sophistication to any space.
The Embarq Entry Door style is perfect for homeowners looking to save energy costs with an unrivaled insulating value. The polyurethane core is up to 43% thicker than standard high-insulation fiberglass. This allows for draft protection and temperature control. Plus, this door is available in a wide range of styles with a built-in window for a unique look.
An arched door can create a statement in your entryway that elevates the overall look of your home. These doors can soften the lines of a traditional square-top door and fit well with many architectural styles, from Mediterranean to Colonial.
The most common type of arch-top front door is a radius arch, or eyebrow arch. This type of arched top is a gentle curve that clearly separates at a specific point from the vertical lines of the sides of the door panel or glazing. They are available in both single and double doors, and may be accented by sidelites or a transom.
Another type of arched front door is a true arch, or true round-top. These doors are typically made in pairs, and the arc extends across both doors to provide continuity and a sense of significance. They are often seen in Tuscan, Mission Revival, and French Country styles of architecture, where they can really stand out among a collection of rustic, natural-looking materials and finishes such as stone, stucco, terra cotta, and wrought iron.
Raised panel doors exude classic elegance in any kitchen design. The ornate detail catches the eye, adding depth and dimension to your cabinets. They’re also a wonderful choice for stain finishes, enhancing the natural beauty of the wood grain.
The raised panel style differs from the shaker style door in that the frame of a shaker is smooth, while the center of a raised panel features ornate details that add a rich appearance to any cabinetry. The stiles and rails can be sleek and narrow for a transitional look, or wider to contribute to a traditional aesthetic.
While both styles will enhance any kitchen, the final feel of your cabinetry will largely depend on your selected door and drawer fronts. Understanding the differences in cabinet panel styles will help you decide which one best suits your desired aesthetic. The choice will also impact the overall cost of your project, since cabinet doors and drawer faces make up the largest percentage of the total price of your new cabinetry.
Barn or Farmhouse
Farmhouse style combines rustic charm with modern sophistication, and barn doors are the perfect way to bring that timeless aesthetic into homes. Whether used to separate the dining room from the kitchen, or as a closet door for extra storage, these sliding doors conserve space by not needing a large opening and can be customized to fit your style preference.
Swinging barn doors are another option for separating rooms in tight openings, and offer the flexibility to be customized with many design options. Choose from a simple board and batten, X or British brace style for classic farmhouse appeal or opt for the premium exotic woods like Wenge or Padauk in a traditional Z brace style for a more elevated take on the rustic look.
Higher tiers unlock elevated customization and authentic woodgrain replication for a truly premium finish. Save time during your next project by having style discussions early on with your client or dealer, and use these resources to guide their vision and champion their choice of JELD-WEN windows and doors.
