Enduring strength. Timeless beauty. Total security. This is what homeowners expect from their home’s doors. But which doors are best for your home? Buying luxury products and fixtures for your home isn’t simply about choosing the most attractive doors you can find. It’s vitally important to find doors that are strong as well as stylish, to endure through storms as well as years of wear and tear.
Knowing your options is important. Door choices go beyond standard front doors and sliding patio doors. If you’re a homeowner with a high-end home in Florida, you have many types of doors to choose from.

In addition to the range of glass options and the many finishes available, traditional estate entrances also include a range of grille options, allowing for an almost customized appearance.
Thermally Broken Terrace Door
A thermally broken terrace door is constructed from a frame and a large unbroken panel of glass. These doors are constructed to accommodate large panels of glass and still retain their high-impact and non-impact resistance certifications.
Thermally broken terrace doors have low-E glass options to help ensure that your home is comfortable throughout the year, even at times when the blazing sun shines through, and in the winter when your home is heated. These doors also come with glass of many colors, including green, blue, gray, and more.
Pivot doors are unlike any other doors because they’re designed to pivot instead of open and close on hinges. These doors rotate on a vertical axis, called a spindle. This may sound unique, but pivot doors have been around for thousands of years, and examples of pivot doors have been found in antiquity.
What are the advantages of pivot doors?
- Size. Pivot doors can be made very large -including very wide and tall – because they don’t rely on hinges to support their weight.
- Material flexibility. Because weight is not a concern, pivot doors can be made from nearly any materials, including stone.
- Luxury. The unique beauty of pivot doors makes them almost a work of art – and certainly a focal point of your luxury home.

Sliding Glass doors
Sliding glass doors may sound standard, but there’s nothing standard about a door with custom panel configurations and corner door options. The best sliding glass doors are designed to open easily with a low-friction, rolling motion.
Larger sliding glass doors come in heights of up to 12 feet tall, to provide a lovely view of the waterfront or lawn outside. Sliding glass doors may be designed to be impact resistant, for families living in coastal areas where tropical storms and hurricanes are a potential problem.
