Custom Door Styles

From ornate to minimalist, there are many custom door styles to pick from for your property. However, the doors you use should reflect your home’s architecture. Consider the classic beauty of an American Craftsman home, the elegance of a Victorian house, or the modernism of a ’60s ranch home.

Door Finish & Colors

There are many schools of thought when it comes to picking out the color and finish of your front entry. If you choose a wood door, you might want to use a stain that shows off the wood grain. Or, you can go with a bright and bold color to really draw the eye to a metal or fiberglass doorway.

Some homeowners choose red doors because they are considered good luck, while others pick a more neutral shade to compliment the home’s color scheme. Whatever you decide if the best option, ACM Window & Door Design can apply your chosen color and shade with a durable, weather-resistant coating.

Transoms and Sidelites

It’s easy to make the front entry more ornate with the addition of a simple overhead transom or a sidelite or two. These decorative accents made the doorway appear wider and usually have glass to allow light to enter the home or improve visibility.

Glass Designs

Homeowners also have the option of specifying the type of glass design used in their entries. You may want any of the following:

  • Clear Glass
  • Scroll-work
  • Glass Blocks
  • Grille Patterns
  • Stained Glass
  • Tinted Glass
  • Patterned Glass
  • Frosted Glass

Hardware Style & Finish

The door handle and locks also add to the final look of your front entryway. Most choose a finish that match the rest of the entry and the home exterior. Hardware finishes are usually metallic, either brushed, polished, or chrome in a variety of shades from gold to silver to oiled bronze.

Another consideration is also method of operation and security. Do you want a doorknob, a handle, or a lever on your door? Are you interested in a deadbolt and chain for the entry too? These can also be matched to the door style.
