You’ve finished with your exterior renovations, getting some brand-new siding, upgrading the trims on your replacement windows and maybe even landscaping your front yard. Now that everything else looks elevated, a basic single entry door might appear out of place. Fortunately, your choices are not limited to this standard entryway. You can also choose to update your front door with a double entry door.
As its name suggests, double entry doors consist of two doors that open in the middle. It offers plenty of benefits in both functionality and aesthetics to any home. Let our remodeling experts at Hunterdon Siding and Window Company show you why double entry doors deserve your consideration.
They Look Better Than Single Entry Doors
Some homes that have undergone a recent roof replacement or exterior remodeling might have certain architectural styles that are not served well by a basic single door. Appearance-wise, double entry doors are better suited for traditional styles such as a classic Victorian, Colonial, or Spanish Colonial. Normally, these homes have large and elaborate porticoes that only double doors can aesthetically match.
They Can Be a More Practical Choice
Imagine carrying large pieces of furniture through the narrow passageway of a single door. It can be challenging indeed if you don’t have any other doorway to use. You can do away with this problem and other space-restrictions with a double door, which is enough to allow maneuverability of large items.
They Have Better Lighting and Better Efficiency
A big enough window replacement can allow plenty of healthy daylight into your home. Add to this the large glass area of a double door and its accompanying transoms and sidelights and you can wash your entry hallway with plenty of sunlight. With a properly installed and sealed double door, you can also improve the energy efficiency of your home.
