Classic / Traditional Doors have been around forever. We’ve been installing them for decades in the Orange County area. Interestingly, we find that customers who are interested in Traditional Doors tend to be older.
Because these types of entry doors are styled to be more old school! They present a specific traditional look, and for the older generations they’re FAMILIAR. This style has been around for, well, forever.
Our customers who choose the traditional look want something subtler, without all the flamboyant or decorative bells and whistles. They want a door that matches their older-styled home and looks OUTSTANDING!
Here’s a great example from our Entry Door Galleries that we installed in the Orange, CA area.
What you have here is a classic 60×80 (double 30’’) Jeld-Wen fiberglass entry door system with a mahogany grain, factory-stained Caramel. It’s got special Q glass with a Dark Patina caming and Emtek Saratoga hardware in Oil-Rubbed Bronze.
What Is Caming?
Caming is the grooved, metal bars that hold textured glass and bevels in place. It creates a beautiful design and is an attractive choice for decorative doorglass.
As you can see, it’s incredibly inviting but solid, straightforward, and minimally accentuated. If you want to see what the epitome of this style looks like, here’s another center-arch design with multi-panel.
This is another Jeld-Wen model from the Aurora Estate line with mahogany skin, factory-strained Chappo. It also sports Q glass, and with Patina caming. While hard to see, it’s complemented by a ProVia DuraGuard screen in blue. We installed this for a nice family in the Westminster, CA area.
Where do you usually find these? In well-established neighborhoods. They tend to give off that ‘Welcome home!” vibe that refreshes the look of the property without drastically changing the overall aesthetic.
Ornate, but simple; refined, but elegant; softer wooden colors, but charming. You’ll typically see curved lines with raised paneling and a hint of Victorian-styling with the glass choices.
Let’s look at a third example.
This is another Fiberglass Entry Door from Masonite.
What differs is that the top half is Harlow Glass with an Antique Black caming, then a classic two-panel design takes up the bottom. The grain is oak, complemented with a factory-stained Antique Oak. We installed this for an older couple in the Laguna Hills, CA area – feel free to check out our Service Areas section to see if we install entry doors in your neck of the woods.
