Mahogany has a straight grain that is virtually free of knots. The color varies from a light to a dark brown with red highlights. This type of wood holds up well to the outside elements and is often used on boats. Red Oak is another option for wooden doors and is a fine choice. The grain patterns on red oak vary and the wood will accept most stains. The grain will pick up the stain and creates a wonderful look for an entry door. The color can vary from light to golden combined with a darker grain.
One last way to revamp the exterior design of a home is to add outdoor living spaces with decks and patios. Decks are wooden living areas that are built onto a house and are elevated above the ground as opposed to patios that can be made of many materials, such as stone and brick, and are installed directly into the ground. Landscaping and remodeling companies can either restore old decks or design and build custom decks to the client's specifications. Decks can also be stained many colors to match the home's exterior.
French doors are definitely beautiful in a lot of ways. For one, it's very huge, which is already enough to capture the attention of anyone who wants to visit your home. Second, it demands one of the finest woods in town for frames. Thus, you are talking about wood that is very smooth to touch and can last the test of time. You can imagine oak, cherry, or walnut being incorporated into your own house. It's also convenient to incorporate your own sense of style or concept of beauty into your doors. It's common for home owners to etch flowers, lines, and any designs and works of art right into the door. It doesn't mean to say, though, that you cannot stick with something simple. In fact, simplicity will always be beauty for exterior French doors.
