Our 10 Most Popular Masonite Entry Doors
IT ALL BEGAN WITH DOORS //
When Horner Millwork was founded in 1948 we were primarily a door company. At the time, most residential doors were custom made in small woodworking shops, and door frames were custom fitted and mortised by hand on the job site. The idea of mass producing and building ‘prehung’ doors in a factory setting was new and innovative. Seventy-two years later we are still pioneering the door industry by continuously combining old-world carpentry principles with state-of-the-art modern manufacturing.
Over the years we have watched door trends come and go as new generations of homeowners have sought to make their mark on the suburban landscape. Of all the doors in the home, the front entry door is the indisputably the most prominent. It greets each guest as they arrive, and it keeps our families safe and secure each night. The front entry door is the centerpiece of the home’s front façade, and helps establish and support its style.
Below we have compiled our 10 most popular Masonite front entry doors over the past 12 months. Masonite is exceptional at providing the latest trend insights and design ideas to the building industry, and delivering distinctive door styles that complement every home. Masonite fiberglass entry doors are available smooth and ready to paint, textured to receive stain, or factory finished in an wide array of paint colors or woodgrains.
Explore Horner Millwork’s top 10 most popular Masonite entry doors of 2019/2020…
#1 // 6-PANEL DOOR
The classic 6-panel door has undoubtedly been our top selling front entry door the past 70+ years.
#2 // 2-PANEL DOOR
Trailing just behind the 6-panel door in popularity is the 2-panel door. This door is perfectly well-balanced when combined with two sidelites.
#3 // 6-LITE HERITAGE SERIES CRAFTSMAN DOOR
Masonite introduced a craftsman style door a little over a decade ago, and today it is one of our top-selling doors. With the rise in demand for farmhouse style homes over the past several years, we are seeing a shift in sales from classic New England patterns to American Craftsman inspired door styles.
#4 // VISTAGRANDE 1-PANEL 6-LITE DOOR
Vistagrande flush-glazed doors offer a wider viewing area and cleaner appearance over traditional glass inserts and have become extremely popular over the past few years. Pictured above is a fir textured door.
#5 // VISTAGRANDE 1-PANEL 4-LITE DOOR
The low-profile stile and rail features of Vistagrande doors provide an authentic wood door look.
#6 // 2-LITE 4-PANEL DOOR
This simple door is a builder-favorite and has been a top seller for decades. It provides the privacy and security of a 6-panel panel door, while allowing some light in to your entry space.
#7 // 4-LITE HERITAGE SERIES CRAFTSMAN DOOR
Masonite’s Heritage craftsman style doors combine crisp, clean lines with two recessed panels.
#8 // VISTAGRANDE FULL-LITE DOOR
Full-lite Vistagrande doors are a popular choice for entry doors and swinging patio door units. Pictured above in Pearl frosted glass. Pearl frosted glass is a great choice for front entry doors because it offers more privacy than clear glass, and it matches the frosted glass of interior doors.
#9 // FAN-LITE 4 PANEL DOOR
This old favorite has been on the top ten list for many decades.
#10 // 1-PANEL DOOR WITH ELEMENT GLASS
Decorative glass creates beautiful light, offers privacy, and makes a statement. Masonite’s Element glass style is modern and luxurious, and our most popular decorative glass style.
