Front Door? Single or Double door?
Opinions please! I was supposed to tell my builder yesterday what front exterior door I want but I can't decide!
I have it narrowed down between a double solid 6 panel mahagony door with an 18 inch segment transom above OR doing a single door with 12 inch sidelights and transom above.
Here is a picture of my front elevation. We have changed it a little bit. It will be full stone to roofline (vs stopping at top of first floor) on three areas that bump out. Then it will be brick for the rest of the house.
Pro's for the single door is the simplicity of only one door to open and the extra light that will come in around door and into entry. Pro's for double door is more privacy (no windows exept transom above for light) and ability to move oversized furniture into house.
Here is my inspiration picture for the single door on houzz.com and the double door version would be just like this but double doors vs the sidelights. (This is also my inspiration picture for my front porch)
What door do you think would be look better and also function better?
