Is your front door looking a little lacklustre lately? It’s the entrance to your home and the first impression to guests and visitors so you’ll naturally want it to look as good as possible – as they say, you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. Why not get inspired with the latest front door trends and give your front entrance a bit of a boost in the style stakes? Remember, you can find tons of great front door designs and styles on our website if you feel like it’s time to upgrade or replace your current door.
Casual chic in style
The trend in front doors over the past year has been to move away from the cool, contemporary minimalist look and instead embrace the casual chic style instead. This follows an explosion in ‘shabby chic’ home interior decorating styles, so it’s not a huge surprise to find that this style is now making its way to the exterior of our homes after finding such popularity in the interior. To achieve this look for your own home, we would recommend a country-style door like this one, but of course your front door should match the rest of your house exterior.
Adding vintage letter stencils, like something from an office door on the set of Mad Men, is quite a quirky way to add some personality to your front door. With the trend for using more and more reclaimed materials and adding vintage touches to a modern style, you can create something really eye-catching – and if you don’t want to do this on your front door, you can try it out for your internal doors instead. Just take a look at this quirky example for a utility room.
The colour black never really goes out of style, but it does have the occasional resurgence in popularity, and at the moment black front doors are very on trend. For a classy and sophisticated front door, check out these great styles from our GRP/Composite collection – all these styles available in black, so you can pick the perfect style to suit your house.
Bigger and wider
The trend this year for front doors seems to be heading towards a ‘bigger is better’ theme – with the aim of making the entrance to your home feel grander and more impressive. If your house allows for this trend, we think it’s a great idea, but if you’re restricted by the size of your door don’t worry – there are plenty of other trends you can embrace instead to stay modern.
It might seem very American, but there’s something very charming about all those personalised mailboxes at the end of the garden.
