Modern Front Door Options

We’re taking our home from bad, old, gross mid-century to updated, fresh, mid-century modern.  Our current front door leaves much (and by much, I mean everything) to be desired.


The gated door is actually a first front door– sort of a locked entryway barrier.  Behind that, there is a second front door– an outdated wood door with yellow glass.


We are drastically changing the front entryway.  We’re reconfiguring the front structure shape of the house as well as changing the interior.  One of the first decisions that needed to be made was the style of front door.

I did a lot of research on mid-century modern front door styles.  My first stop was to see if there were any economical options.  To my surprise, Home Depot has several mid-century style doors at very reasonable prices.  These were a few of my favorites.

 A couple of them were along the lines of what I wanted, but none of them quite fit my vision exactly.  I headed to a local building supply center, Stock, and started looking through their options.  Of course, all of the options I liked were much more expensive.  But as it is the first thing guests will see when they enter our home, we felt like the front door needed to make the right statement.  I wanted something clean and fresh, yet substantial.  I also wanted glass on the door to let in more light.

I also wanted glass all the way around the door to let in additional light.  The house just felt so dark before– we are aiming to brighten it up considerably and make it feel much more airy.

I’m excited to show you what we landed on.  Hopefully it turns out the way it looks in my head!
