Kansas Wood Entry Doors

Wood Entry Doors Adds Traditional Elegance to Kansas Homes

Wood is a classic choice for an entry door. Wood entry doors can complement almost any home style and provide beauty and durability to your entryway. The most common wood types used for entry doors are mahogany and rustic walnut. Mahogany is an exotic hardwood with elegant coloring. Rustic walnut is a solid, highly desirable wood species with a unique grain pattern. Both the interior and exterior of the wood could be painted to a solid color to match decor or factory-finished with one of nine stain options to bring forward the beauty of the wood grain.

Commonly known as: solid core door, solid core wood door, wood panel door, wooden door,

Popular Local Trends & Styles

  • Farmhouse wood doors Farmhouse Wood Doors

    Traditional farmhouse doors sat atop a sweeping front porch. The style is simple and uncluttered — usually involving partial or full-light doors that allow light into a home with either a natural wood finish or muted color interior and exterior. Modern farmhouses are integrating more glass, allowing more light, keeping light flowing into the home and giving the illusion of open space. Modern farmhouse doors are often seen in a rustic wood finish or dark black color providing a stark contrast to the light and bright color palettes commonly used in the modern farmhouse style. Grilles are commonly seen in both traditional and modern farmhouse doors.

  • Rustic Walnut wood double front entry doors Rustic Wood Doors

    You don’t need a woodsy cabin to enjoy a rustic wood door. Distressed wood complements a variety of styles, whether it's rustic, industrial or farmhouse. Natural distressing gives Pella’s rustic walnut wood doors their characteristic charm and makes each door distinctive. Choosing real wood gives a rustic door authenticity and aesthetic appeal.

  • Dark mahogany, Craftsman wood entry door on a new home Dark Wood Doors

    Dark wood doors add an air of elegance to an entranceway. From classic to Craftsman, mahogany and rustic walnut offer distinctive coloring and grain patterns. Choose bordeaux, graphite or charcoal stain to achieve a dark look. Bordeaux is a rich brown that allows the wood grain to shine through, whereas graphite creates a darker, blacker tone and charcoal gives the wood a softer gray hue.

Kansas Climate Recommendations

True Kansans are prepared for every kind of weather — from scorching summer heat and possible tornado warnings to below zero winter temps. Your local climate is one of the factors to think about before choosing a wood door, and in Kansas, the weather can change quickly. To prepare your home for the drastic changes in temperature, you should know:

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, transoms and sidelights can help keep your home more comfortable and your energy costs down.

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.

Energy Efficiency

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 wood entry doors. The northernmost reaches of the state would benefit from a higher SHGC due to the colder temps.
