As you might expect, an oversized single front door is one that takes up more space than a regular design. In some cases, they can be much bigger. Forget the discreet entrance this is all about making an impact.
The oversized single front door has many of the benefits of the more traditional double front door and is definitely just as bold and luxurious. The oversized single front door makes a fantastic architectural statement for your home and just like double doors it can be a stunning stand out feature whether you live in a modest semi or a baronial mansion.
One reason the oversized single front door works for most properties is that you actually don’t need a bigger door to achieve the look. In fact, there are several ways you can create the illusion of having a larger entrance. One way to create that oversized feel for example, is by installing a standard sized single door then add sidelights and transoms which will make the doorway seem much more generous. Not only that but the sidelights and transom will bring in more light, so it’s a win-win for everyone!
Why choose an oversized single front door?
The front door a much-underestimated external feature. Indeed, while we may be adventurous when it comes to our living spaces kitchens, bedrooms, and loft conversions many of us stick to traditional style front doors.
This can be a wasted opportunity if you wish to create the wow factor in a property as front doors are not only a practical way to enter and exit a home they can be a stunning architectural focal point.
