Glass Front Doors: A Round-Up of My Favorite Styles and Designs

Why Do Front Doors Cost So Much?

Shopping for a new front door is expensive due to the type of material used to manufacture the door, which includes fiberglass, steel, and wood. Front doors need to be sturdy to ensure safety for the home. It’s also important to consider the brand of the door, which can also influence the price.

If you’re currently shopping for a new front door then you already know that finding an affordable front door that meets your design standards is a difficult task. The size of your door will affect the price, therefore a large door will cost considerably more, and a double door will cost more than a single door.

Different Types of Glass Doors

There are many different styles of glass doors to achieve your desired exterior home look. We rounded up different glass front doors. Everything from arched single white glass doors to unique frosted or stained glass designs.

Double doors aren’t always needed to make a dramatic entrance. This black single door has a curved design that makes a bold statement to the Mediterranean foyer. A strong black front door is a nice contrast with the sleek white walls.

How Safe Are Glass Front Doors?

Front doors are an investment so is splurging on a new glass front door actually worth it? Don’t worry having a front door made with glass does not appeal to burglars and they’re not easy to break due to the thickness of the glass. According to SafeNow.Org, “…34% of burglars use the doorknob to break into a home, while 23% use a first-floor window.”
