Old white entry door with sidelights and transom


New black fiberglass entry door with sidelights and transom

Originally these Manhattan, Kansas, homeowners were thinking about replacing their old entry door with a similar style to what they previously had — entry door with two side sidelights on each side and a transom above.

But then talked about the possibility of doing framing for each of the units using black windows and white trim around each to create a nice separation and visual appeal.

A hand-drawn sketch and Pella Design Works rendering helped bring the vision to life. It really helped the homeowners to visualize how this could look and they decided to go for it, choosing a black Pella fiberglass entry door and black-clad sidelights and a transom window made of wood.
