5 Dramatic Front Door Trends

Gone are the days when your front door was just a generic entryway to your home. Front doors are now a statement piece. If you want a little inspiration for upgrading your home’s exterior, check out the following examples of show-stopping front doors.

Bold colour

Adding a bold colour to your existing door is an excellent way to bring a little pizzazz to your home’s exterior. Choose a bright colour that matches the flowers in your front yard or that can be seen from the roadway.

Colour matching

To take your home's exterior to the next level, consider matching the elements around your front door to the new colour of your door. Paint your mail slot, add a matching rocking chair or adorn your front stoop with festive accessories. Think of your front door as an opportunity to create a decorative scene, with the door as the focal point.

Decorative inlay

Another stylish option some homeowners use to accentuate their entrance is to choose doors with decorative inlays. Instead of a simple, unadorned door, opt for one that has detailed touches.

If you don’t want to change your front door, consider adding architectural details to the area around your door. A small balcony or columns can add a distinct "wow" factor to your home. Be sure to follow all building codes if required.

Window accents

Another option is to add accent windows to either side of your front door. Frosted glass windows give you plenty of privacy, or opt for windows with shutters that match your home’s exterior trim.
