When choosing a wood door, there are many considerations.
For the highest level of privacy, you can get a panel door which has no glass.
If you want to bring light into your home you can get a sash door which pairs a piece of glass with panels.
For the most natural light, you can get a french door.
Architecturally correct doors have proportional stiles and rails.
Wide layout doors have larger 5-1/2” stiles to accommodate certain locking mechanisms.
Reverse layout doors switch the intermediate and bottom panels, as well as lock rail and bottom rail, for a different look.
