Add depth and elegance to the entrance of your home with our collection of best-selling wooden main door designs

Let’s reimagine the door. Which one, you ask? The one that boosts curb appeal instantly — how about reimagining wooden door designs for the main entrance of your home?

Is yours the traditional brown, black, or beige? Is it a single door? Could you experiment with a splash of colour? How about adding another to give the forlorn one some company? Let’s add some design elements — interesting door knockers, a jali design to inject some Indian vibe, or even an ornate handle. Why must you do any of these, you ask?

A door is more than just a door. The backdrop to many of your photos, a gateway into your home, the spot where you will welcome guests and bid goodbye to family — the main door speaks as much about the people who stay behind it as the rest of the home.

And it is almost embarrassing how easy it is to infuse some flair into your space by experimenting with the wooden main door designs for home. We share our list of the top popular wooden main doors that keep the style in and boredom out. Check it out. 

Wooden Main Double Door Designs Indian Style

A classic wooden main double door design in Indian style will give many of us a feeling of home. Traditionally, Indian main doors come in pairs, even in the most basic of houses. With more modern homes, it is easy to install a single wooden main door, depending on your preference.

Wooden Flush Main Door

The unparalleled simplicity of a flush door lends a modern charm to the entrance. These are usually made from a single slab of wood. They may be without the ornamentation of panels, louvres, or slits, but that doesn’t make them any less stylish.

Wooden Main Door in Colour

Switch up your classic brown wooden main door with a pop of colour. Better still, if it is unexpected. The world is becoming encouragingly tolerant of unconventional shades of doors so dip your brushes in orange, scarlet, yellow, or purple.
