Single Iron Doors vs. Double Iron Doors: What’s Right for My Property?


For many homeowners, it’s both thrilling and stressful to customize every detail and aspect of your home. It takes a lot of planning and preparation, not to mention weighing out the pros and cons of different options such as double iron doors vs. single iron doors!

So how do you know which style is right for your property? Whether you’re looking for options to replace an old door, or interested in remodeling your entrance completely, it’s worth factoring some of the following:

Consider the size of your home and front entrance

If you have a smaller house, it makes sense to get a single iron door, and for wider walls, and entrances, double doors make more sense. However, it’s not necessary that you live in a mansion or a villa to enjoy a bigger door—in fact, a double door can look incredibly unique on a smaller home too.

However, the size will determine other repairs and replacements, and the extent of remodeling that is necessary when installing your door.

Factor in your budget for the iron door you want

Unfortunately, the larger the door, the more it will cost. We at Pinky’s Iron Doors do our best to offer affordable iron doors, but of course, a double iron door will cost more. Browse through our collection of doors to see which one meets your budget, or look into some of our flexible payment options so you don’t have to give up your dream door. We also have great options on sale so grab yours before stocks run out!


Think about the benefits that both options offer

Single doors are cozier, cheaper, and definitely easier to install, double doors are spacious and wide enough to move large items such as furniture, and even open up during events and parties. However double doors do require more regular maintenance and upkeep which you should be mindful of. The difference between both types remains marginal, and you can easily enjoy  similar benefits from both. 

Look at ways to get the best of both these options

We also offer single and double doors in multiple styles that allow you to enjoy both of them; we have single doors with sidelights or transoms to give you the appearance of a wider door without having to choose a larger one, and larger doors that come with pivots, and other features.

It boils down to the aforementioned factors, and your personal tastes and preferences in the end. If you’d like to know more about our iron doors sale, or other products and services, reach out to us today.
