Should Adjacent Exterior Doors Match?

Hey fam! We're updating two exterior doors that basically at right angles to each other and very close in proximity.

The question I have is: should they match? Looking for some solid design/architectural advice here.

One door opens into a lounge/office, the other opens into the family room (main entrance from the back). At the very least the old french door needs updating for security/insulation purposes.

Help! I can't decide if they need to match or not, especially since I think the french door may end up being slightly smaller than the more modern, standard exterior door. The french door also sits about 7-8 inches higher, sort of on a step.
