Should the interior and exterior of a front door match?

8 years ago

(I asked this on The Old House, but will try here as well.)

We are designing a custom front door for our 1910 foursquare.

I like the look of a craftsman ledge with dentils. If the outside of the door has the ledge and dentils, should it go on the interior side of the door, too? Woodwright says it's entirely up to us. Not sure what others have, and door photos almost exclusively seem to show the exterior.

Any information appreciated. Thanks!
