The Entry Brite Advantage
Traditionally, the front door was the only accepted entrance to the home, I mean it is not like hobbits have garages. These days, it is the garage door that many of us use to access the home. We pull our cars out in the morning, as safe as can be and take on the big bad world before pulling back into the garage and closing out the world. We get it, you probably have an incredibly boring door with no windows and a peep hole that is too tall. Your entryway is probably dark enough for a desperate vampire to sleep in for the day. At Entry Britre we want to change that. We like to think of ourselves as ambassadors of entryway beautification (not an official title). We feel that now is the time to reclaim a bit of the past, when the entryway was a critical part of the home and served an actual purpose. Of course, even if that purpose was to look pretty, we are okay with that too. If you look at classical architecture, the entryway had a very specific purpose. It served as the welcoming area and gateway to the home. This area was as much psychological as it was physical, not quite outside and not necessarily inside the house. For instance, many times the floor of the entryway was not carpeted, but incorporated tile or stone. This not only made it easy to clean but formed a barrier between the more intimate parts of the home—almost like bringing the outdoors inside.
If you look at a place like Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, a very celebrated piece of American architecture, the entryway is grand, features two staircases and creates a very clear division of space. The doorway is gorgeous with a classically styled, romanesque feel and southern charm. The entryway was a form of limbo in which you would wait for the homeowner to invite you into the parlor. The parlor was the general entertainment center of the home. Many times, this is where the guests of the homeowner would visit and play games. If you made it past the entryway you were officially into the social circle of the homeowner. In fact if you want a door that reflects the style of Monticello, Entry Brite can turn your door into a gorgeous representation of that southern classic style. These doors harken back to the time when we invited people into our homes on a much more regular basis. Today, grand entryways are scrapped for more important features like a media room or a space as equally anti-social. Not that there’s anything wrong with a killer media room, but generally the interaction is between you and the media. Society has changed to the point that we no longer need to design our homes to be impressive, we have removed the parlor from new construction and replaced the entryway with drab spaces that hold a coat closet and maybe a shoe mat. Entry Brite Is here to change that.

What We Do
When we began, there were many ways to change the look of your home and entryway. Generally homeowners added windows on either side of the door and maybe a window at the very top of the door. Most entryway doors were drab chunks of wood or steel that really had very little aesthetic value. These doors may be stained a complimentary color for the house but still provided a stoic barrier. Of course a barrier is important to discourage those who would attempt to enter your home and cause harm or steal your property, but what if you could still have a secure front door but add a gorgeous touch of class. Entry Brite is unique in the custom front door game due to the fact that we utilize your existing front door and essentially make it unrecognizable—in a good way. You can choose from thousands of patterns, glass styles and even accents. Basically, Entry Brite can transform your boring old door into the centerpiece of your home.
