Connecticut Front Doors

Front Doors add Style and Charm

From the bucolic hills of Northern Connecticut to the coastal towns in the south, the Constitution State is home to a range of home styles, including many in the Queen Anne, Colonial, and ranch styles. Whether a waterfront home in Southport or a Victorian home in the heart of Hartford, every home can benefit from a stylish and secure front door.  

Complement a historic home’s strong Colonial roots with a 6-panel entry door or amp up the contemporary look of a new build with a black front door. Pella offers a variety of styles, finishes, materials, and colors, so you can find the right door for your home.

Popular Local Trends & Styles


  • Sidelights and windows on your entry door Sidelights and Transom Windows

    Colonial-style homes commonly have solid 4- or 6-panel doors. For this reason, transom windows are a popular choice, especially in center-hall Colonials, as the addition of a window above the door allows light to filter into the entryway. A window on one or both sides of a front door, a sidelight, is another popular choice for letting in light to Connecticut homes.

  • Victorian style home Victorian-Style Front Doors

    There are a number of Queen-Anne style homes around Connecticut, from New Haven to New Hartford. This style of home is characterized by sculptural elements and ornamental details, and front doors were no exception. Victorian front doors frequently have ornate carvings and a single pane of glass in the upper portion of the door. Pella offers a variety of front door styles with glass, including the 3-Panel Scroll Top Oval Entry Door, that would fit this style of home.

  • Wooden Front Doors Wooden Entry Doors

    Solid wood doors are common among Colonial-style homes and remain a popular choice for many homeowners. Pella solid wood front doors are made from mahogany and rustic walnut and can suit any Connecticut home style. Get the look of a solid wood door but with less maintenance by choosing one of Pella’s fiberglass entry doors in a warm wood-look finish.

  • Red storm door with Prairie-style glass Storm Doors 

    Protect your entrance door with a storm door1. In a state like Connecticut, where temperatures vary by season and bring all different kinds of precipitation, a storm door acts as a barrier against the elements. Storm doors typically contain glass or screen2 panels that are interchangeable or retractable, allowing for increased ventilation during warm weather.  

1 Storm doors are not offered with wood entry doors. Adding a storm door to a wood entry door would void the warranty.

2 Warning: Use caution when children or pets are around open windows and doors. Screens are not designed to retain children or pets.

Connecticut Climate Recommendations


Much of Connecticut has a humid continental climate, however, thanks to the proximity to the Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean, the coastal areas in the south tend to have milder winters. Connecticut experiences cold winters and warm humid summers with precipitation year-round. That means your front door is exposed to rain, snow, and humidity.


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.

Fiberglass Entry Doors

Fiberglass Entry Doors

For good insulation and protection from drafts and leaks, choose fiberglass entry doors.
