The truth is, there are so many wood door options out there it can be hard to know how to proceed. So in this post, we’ll explore some of our interior and exterior wood doors and help you simplify the process of finding the right one for your next project.

There’s nothing quite like a wood door, exterior and interior, to provide a warm and inviting impression for your home. Wood doors can support different stylistic visions, offer cherished privacy, and even create a feeling of sanctuary.

Once it’s been decided that wood is the right path, there are any number of variations to be considered that will help bring the preferred look into clearer focus. This includes everything from wood species and panels to glass types and decorative accents. Drawing on all of the options, a wood door can pair beautifully with virtually any home style, whether it’s elegantly modern or comfortably traditional.

Optimize your door’s character with intricate hand-carved designs, distressing, or statement-piece hardware options.

Exterior doors

Anyone who has stopped to admire the front of a house knows that a door serves as more than just an entrance to the home. It’s the spotlight on the home’s tone and style and so naturally says a lot about its owner.

IWP® Wood exterior doors

Our IWP Wood exterior door line offers a touch of luxury and sophistication, featuring distinct wood species. The product family also includes an extensive catalogue of designs, ranging from traditional to contemporary to custom. Even Dutch door options are available.

As you do your planning, start with the diverse range of available stain and paint finishes. Which one is right for the style? Then think about the hand-carved designs, distressing, or statement-piece hardware options that are offered. What about decorative grilles or clavos or straps? Maybe you want to give your project an aura of Old World charm.

If glass is preferred, weigh the various decorative and performance glass options you can choose from. All of these variables will have a big influence on the final product and its ultimate design impact.

From craftsman to prairie, colonial to contemporary, our curated designs offer sophistication and charm.

JELD-WEN® Authentic Wood exterior doors

This family of exterior doors is created to bring the luxury and warmth of real wood to any residential architecture. They come in a wide range of designs, each one featuring a densely engineered core shielded with premium veneers for lasting performance.

From craftsman to prairie, colonial to contemporary, find curated designs that deliver the sophistication and charm sought by so many homeowners. Choose from hemlock’s light, fine-textured, straight-grained appearance or meranti mahogany’s high-density, deep, rich-looking grain. And then there’s the collection of optional energy-efficient glass to ponder.

Here’s one thing to check when doing your evaluation: the overhang. Is it necessary? In a word, yes. An overhang is required for all exterior wood doors. Overhangs protect the door’s finish, reduce the frequency of refinishing, and help keep the weather out of the home.

If an overhang is not an option, check out JELD-WEN’s various lines of fiberglass door options that look like real wood and hold up in any environment.

Handcrafted from the finest materials and offering a wide array of luxurious, custom design options, JELD-WEN® IWP® Wood interior doors bring uncommon beauty into the home.

Too often overlooked, interior doors offer an untapped opportunity to fill out the home’s style. Like the furniture or light fixtures, this important design element contributes to the home’s overall story.
