Frosted Glass Front Door Designs For Exterior


When it comes to choosing a new front door, how about something that enhances both the exterior and the interior of your home?

Your front door is your welcome home, your invitation to guests, your statement to passers by, your window to the world, and your first line of defence.

You want to love the way it looks and feels as you use it multiple times every day, and you want to feel secure and comfortable in your own home.

But have you also considered how your front door can transform your entrance hall from the outside in?

That’s just one of the reasons why a frosted glass entry door is an excellent choice for the front of your home.

Frosted glass can be incorporated into both traditional and contemporary designs as a stylish feature, but it’s also a great way of inviting a flow of natural light into your hallway and uplifting the interior of your home from morning to evening.

Why not dip your toe into the possibilities of frosted glass and see where it takes you…

Light & Privacy – No Compromise

Incorporating glass into front doors is nothing new, but many people are reluctant to compromise their privacy at the front of the house – especially if the front door opens onto a busy street or is overlooked.

With clear glass panels, it’s easy to feel exposed in your own home, but a frosted front door gives you the ideal balance between light and privacy.

You can refresh and rejuvenate the entrance to your home, outside and in, and say goodbye to your dark or dull hallway, without feeling like you’re on display.

Of course, this is also a security issue. If passers by or potential intruders can see directly into your home, they might just catch a glimpse of something they want to get their hands on. With a frosted glass front door, you get the benefit of the light without the prying eyes.

Always in Style

There’s no need to feel restricted when it comes to style and personal tastes, either. Frosted glass exterior doors are available in a huge range of designs, from a half glazed, third glazed or full length glass door, to one or more glass panels in various configurations.

Your glass can be simple or decorative, and can lend your front door a touch of traditional elegance or contemporary chic.

Our solid timber Flinders range offers frosted glass in a classic fan or oval effect at the top of the door, while the Eden range offers 6 sleek designs for contemporary elegance.

For a modern front door frosted glass can be incorporated in thin panes in a range of designs, as in our Hartley range, creating a sleek and stylish look.

For Every Home & Budget

Frosted glass exterior doors come in a wide range of materials, so you can choose the look and finish that suits your needs and works for your budget.

Our solid timber front doors offer quality, character and versatility, from a smooth, flat face to optional raised or cricket bat moulding in many different designs.

Our timber and frosted glass external doors can be finished in our signature dark maple stain, or supplied raw for you to paint in the colour of your choice.

Composite doors can be a more economical option, and the HMR skin is easy to paint so you can give your doors a personal touch. Our Regent, Torrens and Clifton collections of composite doors include frosted front doors in a wide choice of designs, from deep square routing to a minimalist style.

If your doors are highly exposed to the elements and resilience is a key factor for you, you could consider our ClimActive doors, with a polyurethane core and fibreglass skin.

There is a wide choice of glazing options, from the classic to the contemporary, as well as optional double-glazing for maximum sound and thermal insulation.

The white skin is easy to re-paint in the colour of your choice, so you can create a frosted glass external door that perfectly suits you and your home, while also standing up to the elements.

For the ultimate balance of contemporary chic and durability, our Bona Vista aluminium hinged door features panels of 6.38mm laminated glass to flood your hallway with light. The commercial grade aluminium can be finished in white, black, APO grey or primrose for a sleek and modern frosted front door.

If safety and security are your top priority, we offer our exclusive Guardian 2in1 security screen door with frosted SafeGlass. You can choose partial or full length glass panels, and the integrated stainless steel mesh means you can open the glass windows to let in the breeze without leaving your home exposed or vulnerable.

Making the Most of Your Space

Whatever the size and configuration of your opening, when it comes to your new frosted glass front door you’ve got options! You can choose a classic single door, or a set of double doors for an even more stately and welcoming entrance.

Some of our ranges also offer both hinged and sliding configurations, so if a sliding door would be more practical or you just prefer the style, this could be another consideration.

Our Eden collection is an excellent choice for wider openings, up to 1020 or 1200mm, so that your new frosted glass entry door really makes a statement at the front of your home. We also have options for taller openings, up to 2400mm, including our aluminium Bona Vista frosted glass exterior door.

A Little Something on the Side

To really complete the picture at the front of your home, why not include frosted glass side door panels? You can choose one or two fixed side panels, and we have an excellent choice of matching or complementary styles.

With most of our front door ranges, you can include a hinged side panel to get those larger items through the front door, like a new fridge. Whether you choose one or two panels, fixed or hinged, frosted glass door side panels are a great way of inviting even more light into your home.

You will be amazed at the power of frosted glass to transform your entrance or hallway with the fresh and airy warmth of the changing natural light.

Glass That’s Tough Enough

A frosted glass exterior door might feel like a less secure and less well insulated option, compared to a solid door, but it’s important to know a bit more about our glass at Doors Plus.

Some of our ranges, such as the Guardian 2in1 security door, use our exclusive SafeGlass, which is 500% stronger than normal glass.

It will only break under extreme force, and will crumble rather than shatter into shards if broken. So our frosted glass front door designs are not only about style – they also take seriously the security of your home and the comfort of your family.
