Make an Entrance: 5 Front Door Design Ideas

Think of it as your home’s first impression, the smile and handshake that sets the tone for everything that comes afterward. It’s your front door. And it’s the first thing that your friends and family see that says, “This is my home. I designed everything about it. It’s completely me.”

If you’ve never really thought about your front door before, we invite you to consider all of the ways to create a dramatic entry that inspires your family and friends every time they come to visit.

What’s your style? Here are just a few front door design ideas:

Rustic Cabin


Strong, sturdy, and rustic, this front door is reminiscent of a cabin in the Adirondacks. The strong architectural details hint to visitors that there might be a warm fireplace and a hot cup of tea waiting inside.

Stately Manor


Want a touch of grandeur to come home to after a long day? At Wayne Homes, you don’t have to be royalty to feel like the king of your castle. A dramatic entry with transom window can transform any one of our 40 custom home floor plans into a neighborhood showplace.

Charming Craftsman


Clean, classic, and comforting: there is something about a craftsman-style door that says, “Welcome to our home.” Craftsman-style sidelights add an extra touch of warmth and style.

A Splash of Color


One of the easiest and most affordable ways to add your personal design touch is to add a splash of color to your door. Red is a classic choice, but you can select any color you like to “wow” your guests and neighbors.

A Touch of Elegance


Are you the type who doesn’t like to wait until the holidays to pull out the china and good silver? Then you’ll love the everyday elegance of a front door with custom glass design. Even a quick trip to the market feels like a special occasion when you come home to a light-filled entry that adds a sense of sophistication to your home inside and out.
