Atlanta, Georgia, Wrought Iron & Wood Doors
Custom doors are a great option for those with historic homes because they can really match the home’s style and enhance the curb appeal of your home.
Victorian historic homes, those built in the 1800s, are often large with incredible wood or stone exteriors. Their shapes are complicated and asymmetrical with different rooflines and decorative trim. Double entry doors were preferred in Victorian-era homes. Scardino Doors has a variety of options for those with Victorian homes. Our American Wrought Iron Doors collection features a variety of double wrought iron doors with beautiful windows to complement your Victorian home.
For historic houses, glass was often the focal point and etched or stained glass was a popular choice, as it gave the homeowners a bit more privacy.
For historic homes in the early 1900s, Bungalows or Craftsman-style homes were quite popular. These homes focused on woodwork, and doors often had simple rectangular panels.
The rich beauty of an authentic wood door gives a classic appearance. For these early 1900’s homes, we suggest a custom wood door from Scardino Doors, like this Tuscany Four Panel door. The solid panels provide privacy and security. Add sidelights to the sides or a transom above to bring in light and to enhance the style of your Craftsman home.
