But front door styles do not have to match interior door styles - in fact, front doors are often chosen in different colors and styles for dramatic entrances. 


The Santa Fe door style can have a rustic appeal. Make sure this type of door flows with the rest of your home design, however, or it may look out of place.







New Home Door Style 3: The Provincial

New Home Door Style 4: The Avalon


The Avalon interior door design uses three differently sized rectangle panels. 


The top panel is the largest and the middle panel is the smallest.


In this home, the middle panel of the avalon doors mirrors the 13-piece craftsman style crown moulding above the doorway.

Hi Penny,

I liked seeing the doors in their settings...and now I am wondering if it is possible to "upgrade" a door of any of these styles to have it be a solid wood??

Janeanne - yes, most of these styles can be upgraded to a solid wood.  Solid wood doors are fairly rare these days though, and the price tag can be hefty.  A solid core door is much more common, and has a very reasonable cost.

I'm digging the Santa Fe style, myself.
