How To Get More Entryway Space Without Double Doors!

Looking To Expand Your Doorway But Not Interested In
Going With Double-Entry Doors? We Have A Solution.

Anywhere from 5-10% of our customers say they would like to have more entry door space, but without resorting to huge double-entry doors.

What can we do?

Whereas most other companies in the area struggle with this kind of issue, we can quickly help you design the perfect single door with an operable sidelite (known as an uneven pair).

Let’s take a look at this image from our Entry Door Galleries:

What you have here is a smooth-skin, Therma-Tru fiberglass entry door system factory-stained blue with one extra-white operable sidelight and one inoperable sidelite (both are 5 light-SDL).

Each sidelite is one piece of solid Rain-style privacy glass, with the framing elements making it look like there are five separate windows on each.

We installed that entry door for a wonderful family out in the Diamond Bar, CA area.

Compare it to the entry door below, where a mull post exists between the door and inside sidelite. Even if the sidelight were operable, there wouldn’t be any extra space.

Let’s look at another setup that does provide more space.

As you can see, they have a stairway directly behind the front door. So, having this extra space to move in/out appliances, furniture, or other large objects makes the entire task so much easier (and safer).

That’s another Therma-Tru model, but this time the privacy glass is Chord-style (without posts for solid rather than divided light). Its got a Mahogany grain and is sporting the color Mulberry.

We installed it for another great family in the Anaheim, CA, area.

  • This is a functional theme.
  • Essentially, it’s a modified double door that acts like an uneven pair.
  • The sidelites in these doors are about a foot wide, combined with the 3-foot wide doors.
  • Everything about the setup in terms of aesthetics can be customized: glass, the doors themselves, hardware, color, etc.

One of the main issues is that in Southern California, 5-foot openings are the norm. This can be a rather tight fit for some. With these kinds of modified doors, you have the flexibility to get the type of aesthetic you want without having to resort to double-doors.
