New Door, New Look!

Hey neighbors!

I am so excited!  Our back deck is almost completed.  It actually has several levels and a grill area.  It is wonderful!  And work has started on replacing our front porch.  I will be doing a post to show you the differences.  Next on my list of renovations are the two main doors.  One front and one in the back.  They needed replaced anyway, but now that the new deck and patio are going up They are really looking bad, especially compared to the deck and porch!




Anyway, I have been looking at some different options on doors4home.  I am really beginning to dream!  I found several that I really like.  I definitely want a window in the front door, but not too big.  I have included several here that I thought looked nice.  What do you think of the ones above?  It is an older home so I want to find something that fits in well with the present look.

For the back door I am not quite as concerned that there be glass in it.  I am thinking solid wood, but I am still trying to decide.  Would you go for something with a design or just plain?  I like the designs, but I am not sure if it would look good out back.  Maybe we should just do a plain door.



Hopefully we will be able to replace the doors within the next month or so.  We should be done with the deck and porch within the next week or so and then we can move on.  I will be sure to post some pictures once we decide.  Thanks neighbors for sharing your opinions.

I like metal doors with no glass, reason being if someone was going to try to break in it would be a lot harder for them to do so. We do have a metal door in the front but the glass is up high so if they broke it they still could not get in. Just a thought.
