We have an old metal screen door on the front door that is ugly as sin. I also hate it because when it’s cold, I cannot leave the front door open, not even for a minute. We live high up on a hill with no trees to block the wind and opening the front door means often risking getting swept away.
I have been combing through pictures of storm doors and here are some of the options I am considering. Our front door has two small windows at the tippy top, above eye level and the rest of the door is solid wood. I will likely have to keep the top solid glass unless I do a custom door. Here is a collection of some of my favorite storm doors . . .
And, a beautiful interior view. I would be curious to see how that door knocker falls once the door is closed. Those are the kinds of things I am going to keep in mind when I go to look for my door. Will the upper windows match up? Can the door knocker be seen?
There is a vast number of online wooden storm door sites. But then I came across this image on Pinterest and noticed the door is from Lowes and under $200!
Looks pretty good, right? I believe there is a storm window insert option as well, and the door comes in painted (a fairly good color selection) and unfinished wood. Unfortunately our front door opening is wider but I will be keeping this in mind as we add more doors to the house over the next year or two.
