Achieving an inviting front porch in Georgia requires a bunch of small tweaks, such as maintaining the grass, adjusting the exterior lights, and adding features like chairs, swings, and whatnot. However, perhaps the most important aspect of a welcoming façade is a steel door.
Getting one just in line with your home’s architectural style can make all the difference between an inviting and uninviting exterior. It’s the final touch and, often, the only touch you need to elevate your curb appeal and make the passerby slow down for a good look.
Without further ado, let’s explore black steel doors by Pinky’s Iron Doors for a picture-perfect porch in Georgia.
A Dutch Door for Your Humble Abode
Dutch doors have a unique mechanism due to a split down the middle rather than top to bottom. This allows the top half to open independently of its bottom half, which can remain shut or open with the top half when you release the latch on the bottom half.
While this steel door has many advantages, such as keeping pets and children indoors, letting more air in without opening the door all the way through, and so on, it also has the added benefit of blending seamlessly into a farmhouse-style home.
Install an Air Dutch with fixed glass panels to welcome natural light into your home, whether that front door’s open or shut.

A Steel Door with Transom for Uninterrupted Viewing Pleasure
Transom windows are directly installed above an entry door for cosmetic reasons more than practical ones. However, these little windows are older than air conditioners. As a matter of fact, they were invented for the very purpose of ventilating homes like an electric cooling system.
Nowadays, they’re used to create visual continuity between the indoors and outdoors and installed with flat or arched tops above flat top iron and steel doors. They look great on a contemporary-style home with minimal furnishings in neutral colors.
Install an Air 5 Flat Top with a similar flat top transom to make your front entry look bigger and your entryway brighter with all that natural light that’s bound to come in.

A (Not So) Double Steel Door
Have you ever heard of a front door that’s neither single nor double but is actually an entire arrangement featuring two single doors attached with a fixed panel in the middle? This unique arrangement can enhance the aesthetics of any architectural style.
It would also provide the onlooker unhindered visual access inside your home, so make sure your foyer looks impeccable enough to feature on Southern Living. Once you’ve got the interior and exterior down pat, trade your old entry door for an Air 4 – Dual Single with Middle Fixed Panel featuring a flat top. Make sure you’ve got enough space on there for a double steel door with sidelights.

A Pivot Door for a Complete Turnaround
Pivot doors open on one side, but they don’t have a hinge. Instead, these front doors have a vertical axis that enables a pivoting mechanism. While these doors are becoming increasingly popular among restaurant and salon owners, there’s no rule saying you can’t use them for residential reasons.
Get these steel doors with more glass than steel to let in as much light as possible without having them take up too much space. Order Pinky’s Iron Doors’ Air Lite Pivot to ensure a seamless transition between the outdoors and indoors.

Look on the Bright Sidelight
Black steel doors can hold their own as long as you match them with your architectural style. They’re a surefire win every single time, but do you know what would make them even more of a hit? Sidelights!
If you can’t install a transom window because there’s hardly any space between your door and an overhead window, you could always make use of the space beside your doors. Install a sidelight on one side of your front door, à la Air 4 with Right Sidelight, or both by selecting theAir 5 with Sidelights.
