    We don't have a screen door covering our gorgeous front door and I like it that way. I think security doors look horrible. People knocking don't worry me. We don't even lock the front door if we are home. We have heaps of windows in the living area so we still get the breeze and we have double doors on each side on the lounge that both open onto decks to let air in.

    We have a front door like you described op and not having a screen hasn't bothered us at all. We have a large bay window at the front that let's heaps of breeze in and if someone knocks I can see from the window before opening.

    I lived with the IL's for 2 years and they had no screen door. I hated it both for the lack of security and mostly for the lack of fresh air, that was the worst.

    We have a beautiful wide glass panel front door and a crimsafe screen door. The crimsafe mesh door doesn't change/block the look of the door and we can still get all the fresh air/security of having the door open.

    We have wide double front doors and no screen door. It looks great and a screen door will change the look, but I want to get one mainly because I like the security aspect and also because my 3 & 5 y/o's can now open our front door, so I want a screen door that can be kept locked with a key so they cant get out the front on their own. You can get doors that are just a frame and then the mesh/screen part, so no fancy pattern or anything.

    Wait. People open their front doors when they aren't expecting guests or pizza?!

    If I'm home and not asleep my front door is always open and screen door locked. I love the fresh air and my cats sit and watch out the door.

    A friend of mine had a door without a screen because she had massive windows to let the breeze through instead.

    For security she had a video-doorbell intercom. It was mainly for her children, so they could see and speak to whoever was at the door before opening it. It was something like THIS.
