Please help me choose a front door!
I am back for more helpful advice. We need to make a decision on the style of our new front door, this week if possible. We have decided to have a large rectangular window/transom over the front door, and to have sidelights that go low to the ground (needed to bring light to the basement). We are unsure of the following:
a)Should there be a space between the door and large window above door, sort of like the second picture (although imagine a rectangular transom instead)? The space between the two would be board and batten siding and could include door trim.
b)Should we keep to the top picture and have the door and window above all one unit? Do you think this looks top heavy? BTW, there is only enough width to have a 32" door, with narrow sidelights.
C)What style of door would you suggest? I kind of like the Craftman style doors (similar to the image posted, but simpler), but have no idea if that will go with the look.
Any opinions welcome and appreciated. Thanks!
