Heavy yet reliable, there is no comparison when it comes to a solid-wood door. Apart from being an excellent sound muffler, it is definitely a good insulator. Remember, wood is prone to swelling and shrinking as per changes in the humidity level, which is why you need to take extra care to ensure it lasts for a longer period of time.
A great option to be considered while working on the design of main doors is pilaster. Using pilaster for trim is sure to give a grand touch to the entrance. Opt for the fluted pilaster or paneled pilaster which will help in beautifying your door frame as never before. You can have it wide or keep it narrow, depending upon size and design of the door. Making the pilasters more attractive is not a tough task with fan inserts or other designer blocks. These can be added to the center of top horizontal trim line and even at each corner of trim molding. This is one of the most visually appealing exterior trims which plays up the beauty of the main door of your house.
Frosted exterior doors, which have the company name or logo on it, have been very commonly used in offices. If you want to add a personal touch to the interiors of your house, get one of these and have your name or surname etched on it! However, before installation, see to it that the glass used is tempered and safe enough to be used for an entry door. Or, a safer option is to install a lettered door for your child's room with his name on it.
Keep in mind that medium shades might not be ideal for your front door. Traditionally, people choose either light colors, like whites, cream, taupe, tan, etc., or dark colors. Contrasting the exteriors from the color of the door is a good idea. It automatically highlights the door, making it more welcoming.
