I was just on pinterest trying to get ideas of how to decorate our entryway wall (currently have a crescent table, but can’t find the right peices for it) and this got me thinking…. We NEVER enter through our front door. Not even for lawn work because when we take the tools out of the garage we just walk around the house to the front.
I do answer the door for mail/guests, but rarely do I actually walk out of the house and re-enter through the front door. It actually gives a different view of the house that I rarely see 🙂
So just for fun – do you usually enter your house through the garage/back? Or do you usually enter through the front?

What the HECK is a front door?! We don’t ever open that thing:) We’re garage people. Even our packages get dropped off by the garage. I’ll usually let my Mother-In-Law through the garage too because she has trouble walking up our stairs of the front door. So, yeah literally it gets opened once every month? If that.

We can not enter the house through our garage. So front door for us.

We use the front door, but only because it’s closer to the driveway.

It’s pretty rare that we use the front door. We typically enter through the door in the garage.

@TurtleDoves: Haha! Thats how I feel, like what is the “front door??” I think thats why yesterday when I actually came back through it I was all like “ohhh the house looks different,” lol!

I don’t own a home (so I didn’t vote), but growing up my family NEVER used the front door of our house. Also, our garage was detached from the house, so it would have been impossible to enter through the garage heh.

At my mom’s house, which I just moved out of, we enter through the garage. We used to be able to park in it too before my ex-stepfather turned it into a lair for his lazy sons. But I digress, lol. Now that I’ve moved out I use the front door. It’s annoying but my mom lost the garage door opener I used to use. Either way, if I’m by myself I can enter how I want without knocking but when I’m with Darling Husband we have to act as guests and can’t use our keys anyway.

I don’t own a home – but on my parent’s house (where I’m living right now) there a front door, a side door, a back door, and then another side door which you can get to through the screened in porch. The front door at their house is almost always locked, so I rarely use it. I’ll always go in the side door first, and on the odd occasion that it’s locked I will go to the back door, which is always open.
They have a detached garage … so there’s no way of getting into the house that way.

I don’t even have a key to our front door and we’ve owned the house for 3 years! Always enter through the garage with garage door opener in my car or keypad outside of the garage.

I live in an apartment now, but we had a house growing up and still entered through the front door. BUT that’s because the garage was so full of stuff (my dad has a hard time getting rid of things) that we couldn’t park in there. 90% of the time, we enter through the garage at my MIL’s home.

I feel your pain … I’m the only one that uses the front door. Darling Husband had the carport so he comes in the back door … I park out front so I come in the front door. I don’t know how to handle either space. I am that chick that is like .. where are my keys… oh cool found them .. now where are my sunglasses … and my purse? My biggetst obstacle is the GI-NORMOUS flat screen mounted about the width of the front door into our living room.
I need to figure out a drop spot for my crapola.

We rarely use our front door. Our driveway leads to the garage and there’s a breezeway to the house, between the garage and the back/side door, so that’s what we use. Except when taking the Christmas tree out, that goes through the front door, to avoid strewing fir tree needles all through the house. And strangers always go to the front door.
