Elegant Entryway Remodel with Dutch Door and Flanking and Transom Windows

We have a lot of fun on our Facebook Page reposting home remodeling pictures that we find and enjoying the feedback that our fans give us.  It’s always amazing to read the divergence of opinions on each picture!

Most of our Facebook Fans are from our local area of Hampton Roads, VA – which is made up of the cities of Yorktown, Virginia Beach, Newport News, Williamsburg, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Suffolk, Portsmouth, but their opinions are hardly homogeneous!

What’s really interesting is when we receive an overwhelming response, either positive or negative, on a home improvement or remodeling picture.   That’s when I enjoy sharing those pictures here.

This picture of an entryway and foyer with Dutch Door and flanking windows and transoms created the most buzz this week by the remodeling fans of our page. The dark hand rail of the staircase and white pickets are compliments by the tongue and groove wall paneling and wide planked hardwood floor.  What did you notice first about the picture?

This gorgeous entryway received a lot of attention and praise by our fans, but most felt that the Dutch Door was not the best choice for the front door

Some of the comments we received were:

“Mr. Ed the talking horse from the 60’s sitcom. He was always sticking his head out of a door like this. I think I just dated myself…LOL”

” I love the Dutch door!! and like the entry way very much. Very inviting”

” I do love the idea, but not so much on the front of the house, more on the back or off a mud room.”

“I love split doors”

” ummm.. love”

” yes love the doors would be happy there”

” I don’t think the front door is the appropriate place for a Dutch door, but otherwise quite lovely.”

“The door is too casual for the elegance of the foyer.”
