Many doorways can be quite boring, merely constructed to be an entryway to the rest of the house. But it can be so much more than this as doors can play an important role in tying together the entire look of the house. After all, the doorway is the very first thing that you encounter up close in each residence. So use it to make an exceptional first impression.

With the care and attention of the right designer, the doorway can be transformed into a stunning architectural piece that is the focal point of the façade. Discover the beauty of this essential part of every home with new eyes in this collection of awesome doors to get inspired by.

If you’re not inclined to choose something extravagant, maybe opt for something like this simple but elegant steel door. It’s not ostentatious, but the glass feature in the middle is interesting and is in line with the modern aesthetic of the house. Find a door that suits the rest of the façade, not one that’s eye-catching just for the sake of making a statement.

2. Glass door for a container house

Container homes can be tricky to design, even up to the doors. For this type of residence, full-length clear glass doors – and windows – are ideal, because it adds the illusion of more space inside. It’s also perfect to make the inside of this cool home more bright and airy.

3. Kitchen door

This time, the featured door is one that's located inside the house. For homeowners who don’t have an open layout and prefer to keep their kitchens closed off, find one that blends seamlessly into the rest of the interiors. This gray door opens to the kitchen, and it features an unassuming style. While the frosted glass adds a bit of style, this is a strong and sturdy door that would be a great addition to any room.

4. Steel-framed glass door

Steel doors might be a little too heavy for an exquisitely designed dwelling. For residents who are looking for a tasteful door for the indoors, try installing a glass door with slim steel frames. It goes perfectly with the refined interiors.

5. Large dark doors

This won’t suit every home, but homeowners seeking a very private and secure life can choose to hide behind these thick dark doors. The glass add a bit of sophistication to the design of the doorway but it also blends incredibly well into the dark walls of the residence.

6. Rotary door

For inside the house, swiveling doors can allow the residents to move easily throughout the property. It’s the best of both worlds with the privacy of closed doors and the ease of an open layout.
