Doors are more than just a means for access and egress. With the right options, entry doors can bring together the look of your home and even become an important design element. The following are some of the ways this can be achieved with entry doors.
A popular approach to door selection is choosing a striking color that works with the roof and siding colors, the first two colors in the exterior color palette. Think of the front door as a beacon that draws the eye to it. This is why colors like fire engine red, a color not often used for siding or roofing, is a popular color for entry doors. In some cases, it even helps bring together two disparate colors.
Thanks to its large glass panels, patio doors can be a great design element and even act as a focal point. If you happen to have a beautiful view right outside your home, you can create a more immersive experience with sliding doors instead of the typical picture window. Our Narroline® and Perma-Shield® gliding patio doors feature exceptionally strong frame materials that allow us to build slim frames, meaning bigger glass areas and better views.
Another benefit of patio doors is that it lets you illuminate your indoor spaces using natural light, a practice known as daylighting. Naturally-lit indoor spaces tend to look spacious and welcoming, and emphasize the colors of your existing decor. Increased natural lighting also helps reduce your use of electrical lighting during the day, which can have a positive impact on your monthly energy consumption.
Daylighting also has known health benefits, including improving sleep through exposure to regular daytime-nighttime cycles. Thanks to our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages, you can enjoy as much natural light as you want without worrying about unwanted ultraviolet (UV) rays and heat from the sun.
