For the contemporary home the more sophisticated feeling of Shoji sliding exterior wood doors might be right for you. Although these doors stretch back hundreds of years across Japan and Asia, they are relatively new in the west, and can be used to create a very popular and chic east-meets-west vibe for your back yard, patio, or garden. These exterior wood doors are perfect for pool houses, garden sheds, or verandas that you want to turn from an eye-sore into a trendy feature. Additionally it's a natural complement for koi-ponds or relaxing small gardens. As with all exterior wooden doors the range of stains and varnishes you can use lets this work without any color scheme you could want, from a warm and earthy wood tone to a very dark black formal shine. Although this look is currently very popular it's also been around in the west just long enough you don't need to worry about it going out of style any time soon.
The type of door can also make a world of difference. The basic types are hinged, sliding, folding and revolving types. The hinged type is when the door is hinged on one side allowing it to swing open in only one direction. The improvement on this type is the swinging type. This type is made in such a way that though it is hinged on only one side it can swing in both directions opening inwards and outwards. The sliding type is when the panels are mounted on overhead and floor tracks. These panels can slide over one another in both directions - right and left. These are used in situation of space constraints but their regular use popularity has also increased phenomenally. The folding type is when the two or more panels are joined together by hinges. These hinges allow the panels to fold over each other in whichever direction you want. Revolving type is the one where the panel is attached at the centre with means of an axis and the far ends of the panel can be pushed, which causes the panel to pivot about the axis. This type is not generally used in homes as it takes up too much space but it is quite ubiquitous in commercial establishments.
Another consideration when selecting a door for the entrance to your house is whether or not you want to let light in. If your door faces the sun and you don't want your house to get really hot during the day, it's best to pick a door that blocks out the light and doesn't have front glass paneling. By contrast, if your door is in a shady area, glass doors look good and let in a little bit of light for the front parlor area of the home, making it more attractive.
Front door designs can vary as much as if not more than any other part of your house. If you do not relish the thought of choosing designs and matching styles there are professionals who do this kind of work. Hiring a designer can ultimately leave you more satisfied than making the wrong choices and having to replace mistakes. Many door manufacturers have experts that can aide customers in the decision making process as well as cad systems that can design the door in computer graphics for the customer to see before purchase. Although the technology involved can be daunting to you, the end product will be beautiful front door designs and a better looking home for your to be proud of.
