Entry door style for
I have what a realtor might call a 'charming cottage.' It's not so charming, but it does have SOME charm to it, and the style might pass for cottage (beige brick, white trim & shutters, white columns on porch, scroll work on front eaves). It's a 1953 rectangular house with a high pitched roof & small front porch.
In getting a new entry door, I have to watch costs, since I'm going to try to sell in the spring. I'm getting a fiberglass door with no glass. I can go with the traditional 6 panel (the one with the 2 smaller panels at top), but they're so common that I sort of don't want to go with that.
What I think would look good but still cost efficient is called a 2 panel plank. I'm attaching link to pic of that. But I wonder if that's getting too cutesy? (the hinges & handleset will be bronze). (I could also get that style w/o planks, but the planks are in keeping with the porch; my porch has a plank ceiling.)
I'll post a second post with the 2nd one I'm considering, which is a style that was common in the 50's - the 5 panel door where panels are horizontal rectangles. This is kinda funky. I like it, but am not sure how others would view it, since they wouldn't necessarily know that style is from the era in which the home was built.
Any suggestions as to which you think you'd find acceptable or nice enough, if you were looking to buy, would be much appreciated.
