Lively Combination

Color can add energy to a Craftsman entryway. A vibrant red door paired with blue siding and white trim offers a friendly, high-contrast aesthetic. Photo courtesy of Clopay

Reliable Wood

Handcrafted and built of natural materials, this sturdy wooden door embodies design from the Arts and Crafts era. A high-quality, wood door will last for many years with minimal maintenance of painting and staining. Design by Merrill & Associates

Custom Considerations

Carved design is an elaborate wood door option that makes a stylish statement. Carved doors feature classic raised panel, board and batten, stacked panel or a custom design. Design by Ashley Astleford

Highlighting Features

Grand columns and iron details accentuate this rustic red door and add Southwestern style. Design by Meritage Homes

Emphasizing Elements

The height of these custom front doors are emphasized through additional molding design found above head and frosted floor-to-ceiling windows. Design by Brian Patrick Flynn

Grand Door Design

Prominent stone columns and an intricate, hand-carved door make this Tuscan entryway a neighborhood focal point. Design by Thom Oppelt

Modern Entry

Designer Notes: Create drama in small spaces with tile. Cool gray walls and stainless trim transforms this ordinary entryway into a spectular arrival point. Design by Lori Dennis

Shielding Archway

Wood doors are naturally warm and inviting. Best used in a covered area such as a house with a portico or porch, or in combination with a storm door that will protect it from the elements. Design by Bassenian Lagoni Architects

Symmetrical Accents

Framing a front door with a pair of lanterns and tall potted plants takes your curb appeal to the next level. Photo courtesy of Anderson Windows

Contemporary Openings

Flush doors are plain, wood veneered doors with either a hollow or solid core. They work well in contemporary homes where their simple, sleek design compliments modern furnishings. Design by David Hertz

Distinctive Doorway

Designer Notes: A creative blend of materials creates a distinguishing overhang that adds a sense of scale and purpose. Keep curb appeal year round by using seasonal potted plants at the entry. Design by Jennifer Reiner

Appealing Steel

A modern front door welcomes guests as they enter HGTV's 2010 Dream Home. Steel doors are available in any style, from traditional to contemporary, and they do not warp like wood doors.

Striking Gold

Greek-inspired arches and weathered stairs enhance the gold doorway, creating a Mediterranean motif. Design by Jane Ellison

Durable Doorway

Wood doors have a warm, natural look and come in a variety of species to coordinate with your furnishings. Wooden Dutch doors have the weight you can't find in solid core or hollow core fiberglass doors. Photo courtesy of Jeld Wen

Geometric Aesthetic

Symmetrical arrangements of frosted glass squares give this front door a mid-century vibe. Design by Kerrie Kelly
