Columbus Front Doors

Front Door Ideas to Add Big Style and Make a Lasting Impression

Columbus is home to a diverse mix of urban downtown, college neighborhoods, suburbs, and everything in between. Perhaps best known for its extreme passion for the Ohio State Buckeyes, Columbus is growing rapidly in popularity due to its booming job market, affordability, and relatively short average commute. Home to many Fortune 500 companies and a leader in the tech business, Columbus has a strong and relatively young workforce. These factors make Columbus a great place to live and have led to a booming housing market.

Home styles in Columbus are as varied as its residents — ranging from the charming Queen Anne and Victorian homes in Olde Town East or Victorian Village to rowhomes in the Italian Village and newer modern homes in the Greater Hilltop area or Berwyn East. Pella front doors offer design flexibility to complement or update any of these styles.

Commonly known as: main door, entry door, entrance door, exterior front doors

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Fiberglass front doors Glass Front Doors

    Front entry doors with glass add an elegant, elevated look. Glass within the door panel or accompanying the front door as a transom or sidelight adds extra sunlight to your home, creating a welcoming environment. Glass front doors are seen in historic homes as well as modern and contemporary houses. Single and double entry doors are available with full-light glass panels as well as options in ½ light and ¾ light.

  • Craftsman Architect Series fiberglass double front doors with glass Double Front Doors

    Double front doors create a wider entrance for welcoming guests as well as add a visual anchor within your home’s front exterior. Double entrance doors can complement both traditional homes and modern exteriors. Finishes like color, glass, and hardware can take double doors from traditional elegance to modern appeal. Consider double entry door with contemporary glass doors for a sleek, modern look.

  • Wooden Front Doors Wood Doors

    Historic homes dominate in some neighborhoods of Columbus — including Queen Anne and Victorian style as well as Colonial style. Classic wood doors maintain the historic look and match your home’s architectural style and authenticity while updating the exterior. Wood grain fiberglass is another option for homeowners who want to maintain the look of a wooden front door but appreciate the durability and lower maintenance requirements of fiberglass.

  • Modern and Contemporary Modern and Contemporary Style Doors 

    Modern front doors can match the style and exterior of a modern or contemporary home or simply add a touch of personality to any style of home. For a modern look, consider a flush-glazed full-light door panel with 3-1/2" flat simulated-divided-light grilles to provide the perfect touch of contemporary style. Dark colors and large panes of glass with minimal frames give a modern aesthetic, while sleek hardware adds to the look. Consider a black front door or a modern gray to update an entryway for a contemporary look.

Columbus Climate Recommendations

Central Ohio — including the Columbus area — is often referred to as the Ohio River Valley. This valley sees a variety of weather and seasonal variability over the course of the year including severe storms in the summer and blizzards in the winter. Columbus lies between the flat plains of the west and north and the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in the southern and eastern portions of the state.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Doors with panes of glass with Low-E will help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and keeping the heat in.

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

Frequent storms during the winter bring bitter cold and frozen precipitation. Wood and fiberglass front doors are built to help withstand the weather.

Weather Protection

Weather Protection

The elements can cause wear and decreased door performance. The direction your door faces (South and West exposures tend to expose a door to more sun) and whether or not your entry door is located under a covered entrance, overhang, or porch roof can affect performance. Protect the look of your front door with a storm door to keep your main entrance looking great for years.
