A new front door can provide an instant facelift for your home, but how do you choose one that is built to last both in quality and aesthetic? We’ve analyzed top trends in entry doors to determine which will stand the test of time based on style, material, and color.
Entry Door Styles
Nothing dates your home more quickly than an exterior door that is too specific to any given design era. Selecting a front door that you can enjoy today and sellers will be attracted to in the future can feel overwhelming, but it is possible. We’ve seen consistent demand for entry door styles such as craftsman, modern, modern farmhouse, traditional with sidelights, and wood-paneled over the last several years. Chances are, your “dream home” Pinterest board features at least a few of these looks! Certain features can elevate these exterior door styles, creating a timeless entryway to your home.

Creating Natural Light in your Entryway
Natural light is always in style, and homeowners are increasingly prioritizing this front door feature. Whether they opt for a traditional door with sidelights, or additional glass paneling on the door itself, more and more people are utilizing their front doors to bring the beauty of the outdoors into their homes.
Insider tip: Choosing the right type of glass can weatherproof your home regardless of climate.
Utilizing High-Quality Exterior Doors
Wooden front doors transcend design trends and styles, but can come with steep costs up front and over time with maintenance. Homeowners are opting for fiberglass exterior doors more frequently due to its versatility, durability, and similar look to natural wood. Fiberglass exterior doors are gaining popularity especially in colder climates such as New England, as they don’t bow or shrink in wintertime. A high-quality door that looks as good as it did the day it was installed adds curb appeal and value to your home.
Insider tip: More and more brands are offering fiberglass exterior doors as demand surges, making this a great option for any style.
Opt for Bold Front Door Colors
Your front door color is a great opportunity to let your personality shine through to the exterior of your home. Bold colors have been used to accentuate front doors for decades, making it one of the rare trends that transcends generations. When selecting an entry door color, it’s important to take into consideration the overall aesthetic of your home, and to choose a paint that can withstand the climate you live in.
Insider tip: Professional custom paint services can add years of longevity to your exterior door.
