Finding the Right doors-gates for You

Whether it’s a streamlined or ornate option that best fits your frame of mind, installing an antique or vintage door or gate at your home is the first opportunity you have to make a statement.

The front door of a home symbolizes security. It marks the place where visitors make their presence known and where you welcome them, and it is very literally the passageway to the space you’ve worked hard to make your very own. Choosing the right door for your home is important.

If you’re shopping for a pre-hung door, the door you want is already mounted in a frame, includes hinges and is ready to install in your prepared doorway. The measuring part is easy in this case, as you’ll want a door that has the same dimensions as your previous one. A slab door, on the other hand, is a basic door with no hinges or handles and will need to be painted and finished before you install it.

When you’re ready to buy, why not spring for a grand entrance that lovingly beckons your visitors to come inside?

Summon timeless artisanship and functionality with hand-carved Chinese doors that feature lattice-panel windows or cast-iron doorstops and knockers of British origin. Whether you prefer the clean lines of mid-century modernism, antique wrought-iron Art Deco gates for your garden or a contemporary solution, find the doors and gates you’re looking for on 1stDibs.
