Metallic Or Wooden Front Door? Which One Do You Prefer?

The front door is more than just the barrier that separates the inside of your home and the exterior. It’s the portal to your home and a statement so there’s a lot to take into consideration before choosing the perfect design. One of the most important things is the material. Would you rather have a metallic front door or a wooden one. They both have their own special characteristics so I guess it’s a matter of preference.

Metallic doors.

Metallic doors come in a variety of styles, from minimalist to ornate

They’re not always made entirely of metal. A combination of materials can be used

Metal doors come in a wide range of colors and finishes

They are ideal for industrial-style designs and for contemporary homes

Able to withstand severe weather conditions and very efficient when it comes to security, metallic front doors are perfect for areas with high humidity or extremely hot or cold weather, areas where a wooden door would simply be inefficient.

Wooden doors.

Wood is a warm and very comforting material which often gains a rustic appeal

Versatility defines wooden doors as they come in a variety of styles, shapes and designs

A large wooden front door can really make a statement in the case of a traditional house

A wooden front door can give your home an aristocratic look without even trying

Opt for wood if your house has stone or brick walls for a harmonious look

Also known to be strong and durable, wooden front doors are also eco-friendly and extremely efficient at blocking the noise. So if you’re living in a noisy neighborhood, you should make a wooden front door your top priority. Given the natural properties of the wood, such a door also tends to make a home look more inviting and welcoming.
