With so many designs and styles to choose from, the search for the perfect entrance to your home can get confusing. And so, we decided to make your work easier. Here are eight unique single front door designs, each different and beautifully crafted.
(This is a chapter of a bigger guide on door design ideas for Indian homes.)
Browse through these single front door designs to design your front entrance.
1. With a Weave Pattern
rThis weave pattern is both beautiful in appearance and gives the door a sturdy appearance and built.
You can take a cue from this and go for this durable design that is easy to clean and maintain.
In fact, the deep wooden finish is the most practical choice for front doors. However, with such high-end designs, you will need to hire carpenters with exceptional skills to get the desired look without any variation.
2. With Traditional Motifs
A traditional motif combined with a modern door pattern — you cannot go wrong with this!
The best part is that a simple design like this is easy for local carpenters to create and also costs lesser compared to ornamental door carvings.
With this design, you get an entrance that is Indian in its essence but also contemporary.
3. With Warli Folk Art
Add an element of folk art to your front door with this Warli-inspired door design.
Not only will you be celebrating an art that is unique to our country but you will be incorporating storytelling in your door design.
A bronze-finish grill and dark-toned wooden door is an excellent combination when it comes to colour choice for doors. It’s easy to maintain and has a hint of grandeur.

4. With Quality Finish & a Side Glass Panel
Want to keep the door design simple yet classy?
The secret is to go for a top-notch veneer or laminate finish — like in this design — with simple linear or geometric patterns and large door handles.
By choosing high-quality hardware like this floor-mounted pivot, you can create an element of intrigue in the design.
The side glass panel eliminates the need for a separate grill door, making this design perfect for penthouses, villas and vacation homes.
5. With a Dream-Like Vibe
Another great option for private homes, this classic design has a mysterious Disney/fairy tale quality to it.
If you love classic literature and fables, this design could perfectly capture your personality.
The paneled door is easy to build but requires good quality wood and polish. Meanwhile, the customised glass windows will allow plenty of natural light to penetrate the house.
Pro-tip: If you are designing an eco-friendly home, you can look for discarded doors in similar design at your local wood scrap market. If the wood is of exceptional quality, it will only need a good polishing to restore it to its former glory.
6. With a Metallic Texture
If you are looking for something other than a classic wood finish, try metallic, textured laminates instead.
In this door design, the warmth of the material palette is simply inviting and calming. The sheer radiance of the door goes beautifully with the marbled exterior.
7. With a Grill or Jali
When opting for a grill design, you can go for an elaborate front door while keeping the second door as simple as possible.
The best option — as this design shows — is to go for an intricate metal work in the centre and go creative with the laminate arrangement on either sides.
The cut laminate pattern is also a great strategy to use leftover or waste laminates resourcefully.

8. With an Arch
Arched doors aren’t as common now — all the more reason to go for them if you want to stand out from the crowd.
We love how simple the actual design is but it’s the arched frame and the surrounding glass panels that nonetheless make the door appear so striking!
Let’s not forget the bold colour choice — reddish-wooden finish is a rare sight in front door designs but it’s a gorgeous option to choose!
For apartments, you can skip the side panels and simply go for the arched frame and the colour choice. Add a vintage-looking lamp on top and it will be picture perfect!
