Stain Options

Stains on front doors add warmth and depth to a home’s exterior. They also help protect the wood from the elements. However, stains will need to be reapplied regularly to keep them looking fresh.

ProVia offers a variety of stain options to complement any color palette and door style. You can choose from deep browns, rich reds, and light oak tones. The stain colors are applied to fiberglass doors or steel doors with a woodgrain texture by skilled craftsmen.

CR’s experts test wood stains and recommend ones that resist cracking, fading, mildew, dirt, and more. PureColor Eco-Friendly EvenGrain Stain, for instance, is nontoxic, nonflammable, and emits almost no odor. It’s ideal for homes with kids and pets, too. This stain is a bit more expensive than others but worth the investment for its safety and ease of use. It also dries quickly and has little impact on indoor air quality. A quart of this stain costs about triple what it does at most hardware stores.

Stained Glass

The art of stained glass focuses on enhancing the natural light of a space by changing its intensity, disposition, and atmosphere. It is a dynamic process that is best appreciated by watching the organic effect of daylight on the windows at Chartres Cathedral throughout the course of the day.

The glass made in the 12th and 13th centuries was perfect for stained glass, being flat enough to cut with a fine saw and thin enough to be opaque. The artists Ford Madox Brown and Burne-Jones were masters of line, composition, and color selection and the glaziers were skilled at outlining and separating colors with lead cames.

Create a distinctive entrance with the addition of sidelites or a transom. Available in a number of different patterns, simulated divided lites (SDL) give your door an architecturally precise look. Available in colonial narrow, putty narrow, and putty wide profiles, SDLs work with your choice of direct glaze door for a coordinated look.

Glass Transoms

Transom windows are one part style and one part function, allowing natural sunlight into a room or hallway from above. They also improve ventilation and air circulation, a welcome addition for homes that have solid front entryway doors. Transoms can be paired with sidelights, narrow vertical windows that stretch along either or both sides of the doorway to visually complement the window and create more natural light.

They originated in 14th Century Europe, and rest above the horizontal beam that separates a door frame from the wall above. They were often obscured with curtains or shutters to conceal prying eyes and allow natural light into a space while keeping the house warm. Today, they are mostly decorative and inoperable but can still increase visual interest.

When installed correctly, a glass transom above an exterior or interior door can transform the space into something more stylish and elegant. PINKYS offers many options to choose from, including frosted, textured, and stained glass.

Decorative Hardware

Hardware like knobs, pulls, latches and hinges are a subtle way to bring your design together or add interest to any room. There are a wide variety of styles available from traditional to modern and everything in between. There are also many different types of finishes from metal to wood.

Decorative handles are often seen on casement windows, but can be used for French doors, cabinetry and more. Often these are in the shape of levers with a rounded knob, but can be more elaborate or ornate depending on your taste. Cremone bolts are another style of decorative hardware that offers a handle and latch all in one.

Antique door pieces are a popular option to bring historical elements into new construction or renovations. These are commonly used in pantry, office, and master bathroom areas. They add a sense of time appropriation and can create an awe-inspiring space. These are a great option for styles that lean toward French Country, Victorian, and Craftsman.
