Kansas Entry Doors

An Entry Door Boosts Your Home's Curb Appeal

You can find practically any style of home in Kansas, from a Dutch Colonial Revival in Dodge City to a built-to-suit ranch style home in Topeka. You can also find a front door to fit any of these styles.

A new entry door can blend into the existing style of your home or contrast it and make a statement. A red front door is classic yet bold. Incorporating glass or sidelights or expanding your entrance with double doors can make a bigger impact on your exterior aesthetic.

Commonly known as: front doors, exterior doors, house doors, front entry doors, outside doors, entrance doors

Popular Local Trends & Styles


  • storm door Storm and Screen Doors 

    Screens1 have been common on Kansas homes since the creaky wooden screen doors on farmhouses. Modern screen doors are sturdier storm doors with screens either built-in or easily swapped in with the seasons. A storm door helps protect your front door from the elements. When the weather’s nice, you can turn it into a screen door to catch a breeze and freshen up your home.

  • white front door with sidelights Glass Front Doors and Sidelights

    More modern styles like the contemporary Craftsman homes in the suburbs of Wichita use glass in their exterior doors. The hallmark of Craftsman style is the window in the upper third of the door. Full light glass entry doors bring more light into your home. Sidelights have the same effect. Surround a full light front door with sidelights for maximum sunlight.

1Warning: Use caution when children or pets are around open windows and doors. Screens are not designed to retain children or pets.

Kansas Climate Recommendations


Scorching summer heat, dangerous storms, extreme wind chills — Kansas sees it all. Entry doors can help keep your home comfortable in the face of all these elements if you choose these options to upgrade your weather protection. .

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Low-E insulating glass on doors and sidelights can help keep your home more comfortable and your energy costs down.

Salty Air

Energy Efficiency

For better efficiency and lower heating and cooling costs in the Kansas climate, choose glass with SHGC and U-values of 0.3 or lower on your entry doors. The northernmost reaches of the state would benefit from a higher SHGC due to the colder temps.

Weather Protection

Durable Materials

Steel and fiberglass entry doors are low-maintenance options that can help stand up to all kinds of weather. These materials have long-lasting finishes to help resist wear from the sun and extreme temps.
