Every year, trends in home design emerge. Details like size and color gain popularity, especially for features like front doors. For 2019, there are a few distinct characteristics that homeowners are choosing. Here are five trends to look for.

Trendy Front Doors for 2019

1. Oversized

Bigger, wider, and taller are trending this year, with homeowners choosing more expansive front doors with less paneling and molding. Some entryways are as large as 10 to 12 feet, and due to their size, these doors open on pivot hinges for a modern touch and an exciting focal point.

2. Clean Lines

Without panels and moldings, doors this year offer a cleaner line than in the past. If glass is included, it is glazed right onto the door itself without any extra details, and most lines are straight and simple. Where ornate details were once en vogue, less is now more.

3. Extra Glass

Glass on front doors is not new, but doors with more glass areas and panels are trending, especially in coastal regions. In past years, doors were usually mostly wood, but now half or full glass options are taking prominence. Windows also contrast well with rich materials, like dark brown woods, or they brighten up an entry when paired with lighter colors.

4. Bold Colors

One of the biggest trends is making a bold statement. An easy way to do that is to choose an exciting color. While the tone should match the style of the property and complement other hues on the house, finding contrast is a wonderful approach to your new door. Try bright colors like orange, lime green, turquoise, and yellow, or choose something richer, like deeper greens and reds.

5. Barn Doors

Barn doors are popular for both front doors as well as interior doors. Barn-style options provide a rustic feel that is also inviting for any guest. They can be customized to any size and color, and homeowners can choose simple versions to more detailed choices.
