Door Styles in Salt Lake City UT

The right doors can add beauty, increase security and boost property value. New exterior iron doors look gorgeous and are unbreakably strong, discouraging criminals from targeting your home.

Sliding glass doors are perfect for Bungalows, allowing natural light to flood into your living spaces while giving you easy access to your patio. Consider adding a screen to blur the line between indoors and out.

Bungalow-Style Homes

About one-third of the contributing single-family houses in the East Side Historic District are bungalows, although there is a wide range of styles within this category. These range from the modest in scale and decoration such as a tract of Prairie School vernacular houses on Lake Street to the larger Arts and Craft style house built in 1916 for the developer of Harmony Court.

The bungalow is a low ground-hugging house of one or one and a half stories with a low, often projecting eaves. Its decoration is generally limited to exposed structural elements such as rafter ends, exaggerated purlins and king posts and ornament such as battered cobblestone porch posts.

Early Utah bungalows were built in brick, while later ones were built of wood or stucco. Most were constructed by local contractors, often following ideas contained in popular pattern books and home-improvement magazines. Occasionally, an adobe or early frame house is preserved under a later cladding.

Colonial-Style Homes

Known for their simple symmetry, Colonial-style homes often have a front door flanked by two columns and an accented crown pediment. Often, the front door is set back from the street, and this design allows space for large windows to provide natural light to interior rooms.

Early brick and adobe dwellings in the Salt Lake City East Side Historic District have simple hall parlor or central passage floor plans that were later expanded into cross wings. The house at 837 E. 500 South is an example of this type, a Second Empire style Mansard-roof cross wing added to an earlier 1873-1874 brick house.

Bungalows and Craftsman homes can be found throughout the Salt Lake City area including Federal Heights, The Avenues, 9th and 9th, Upper Yalecrest and Holladay. Ranch homes with modernist elements, also called mid-century modern, are more common in the foothill neighborhoods of Ensign Peaks and Indian Hills. These single-story, elongated homes have attached garages and sliding doors that lead to all-weather patios.

Patio Door Screens

Whether your home is Bungalow or Colonial, patio door screens are an easy way to allow fresh air into the living spaces while keeping bothersome bugs out. Living in Colorado can bring with it a wide range of pests, from spiders to wasps, that will sting and ruin your summer experience.

Retractable screen doors are a popular choice for homeowners looking to keep their homes sleek and modern. These screen doors can be fitted to a variety of door styles, including double French doors that swing in and out, and sliding patio doors.

Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding glass doors are ideal for homes in Salt Lake City because they can bring in more natural light and offer a clear pathway to the patio area. These large glass panes are also great for letting in a cooling summer breeze, which can help regulate temperatures throughout the house.

Duette(r) honeycomb shades have a cellular design that insulates and helps keep cold air out during the winter and warm air out in the summer.
