MCM Home Improvement: Front Doors

By Sablemable aka Jan

Okay, so we’ve settled on wrought iron railings and limestone veneer; now I need help in deciding what style of front door would look great.

I went to Crestview Doors (www.crestviewdoors.com) and played around with their Amazing! Door-O-Vision using the uploaded photo of my house. They offer a lot of different designs according to era and let you “apply” paint colors or stains.  I chose stains, mainly because I’m still not certain which color I’m going to paint the trim.

Here are some designs that I liked.

THE PASADENA (HONEY STAIN)

THE FONTENOT (ESPRESSO FINISH)

THE LEXINGTON (MOCHA FINISH)

THE WESTHAVEN (MOCHA FINISH)

THE WOODROW (MOCHA FINISH)


Crestview Doors does not manufacture doors, but offer door lite kits with instructions on how to install the lites on solid core exterior doors with a few simple tools.

Readers, tell me what door you like best on the house.  My favorite?  I like the Woodrow, but then I also like the Pasadena.

    I like the mocha finish – not too dark, not too light. Like ALL the doors and would have trouble choosing one! Good luck…

    They are all great, but the Pasadena really looks good in that entry. Good luck!

    I actually like the Westhaven best for your house, I think.

    Cool post! I LOVE those window kits! I guess my fave would be the Honey Stain (cuz it goes so well with Hey-Wake) 🙂 and I love the Lexington kit with the diamond shapes. Hey, a girl has gotta love diamomds – right? 😉

    LOL, Saraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa at the Hey-Wake color matching!!!!!

    Miri, Uncle Atom, Andrea, thanks for the input! I have a door like the Westhaven on my 58 ranch. Frankly, I’m going to have a hard time choosing.

    I sent this post to my husband, Bob, who has no idea what’s in store for him, LOL!

    I’m going to vote for the Fontenot. I like how it turns the pattern of the bricks on its side. I really prefer the Mocha finish, though!
