When Were Front Doors Invented?
For over a millennium, front doors have been keeping people protected and heated. However, have you ever questioned where the idea of a front door comes from? And how it has developed into the stylish portal we use today?
Let us take you back to ancient Egypt. The Egyptians would use hinged wood in their doorways. The pieces of wood would have no design pattern, and the hinges would go across the door. But, the earliest recorded front doors are said to be the ones created for King Solomon’s Temple.
The temple doors were made from olive wood. The dense consistency and rich colour would offer a fine texture appearance. However, the first automatic door was created in the 1st century AD. The door was designed by a Greek scholar known as Heron.
