Baton Rouge Front Doors

Front Doors for Baton Rouge’s Architectural Styles

Even visitors to Baton Rouge don’t take long to recognize that the city is a treasure trove of distinct architectural styles. No two homes are alike, from the bungalows in the Garden District to the Creole Cottages that originated in New Orleans as far back as the 1700s. But every house, regardless of its design, requires a front door. That front door can set the tone for the rest of your home and determine the first impression for the guests arriving at your entryway.

With nearly limitless design opportunities to choose from, you can find a front door that will ensure your home stands out from the rest of the neighborhood.

Commonly known as: entry doors, entrance doors, exterior doors

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • French Entry Doors Double Front Doors

    Baton Rouge is host to a variety of different architectural styles, from the Acadians in Woodstone, Woodgate and Oak Hills to the French Provincials in University Club, Lakes at Highland and Lexington Estates. The formal style and symmetrical design of these older homes is often best complemented by a pair of double front doors that make for an elegant entrance.

  • Black Entry Doors Wood-look Front Doors

    Wood-look front doors have long been associated with more traditional-style homes, much like what you’ll find in Baton Rouge neighborhoods such as Tara, Shenandoah and Kenilworth. Made from fiberglass with a wood-like finish, these doors offer the aesthetic of real wood but with lower maintenance requirements.

  • Door with transom Custom Front Doors

    Considering the wide range of architectural styles spread out across the greater Baton Rouge area, a variety of choices are necessary to find what best fulfills each homeowner’s needs. Fortunately, Pella offers a variety of styles, finishes and hardware for their front doors to complement your home and help you make an impression on the rest of the neighborhood.

  • Double entry doors in Craftsman style Storm and Screen Doors

    Baton Rouge homeowners who opt for the wood-like look of fiberglass or choose a steel entry door for their front entrance could also consider the addition of a storm door to complement their front door. Pella storm doors come equipped with glass and screen1 panels that you can swap out or built-in retractable screens for convenient ventilation.
