If you’ve been contemplating an exterior makeover in the coming months, it’s important to pay attention to the top trends in entryways for 2019, especially if you’re looking to change your entry system to increase the resale value of your home. We’ve put together our top 5 exterior door trends for 2019 to help you make the best decision for your entryway:

1. Bigger and Bolder Doors

In 2019, the demand for bigger and taller doors has grown exponentially. Builders will need to go big and tall and light on the panelling and moulding. Orders for 10-foot doors are on the rise, with 12-foot door trends also projected for 2019. Large doors make a statement in bigger homes, and customers will sometimes opt for a larger entry system instead of a standard sized door with a transom.


2. Contrasting Transom Work


There is no doubt that transoms are a beautiful and elegant way to accent your entry door, and we’re seeing a lot more creativity in 2019 for transom work. Contrasting and complementary systems are a frequent request to create entryway interest. Click here to see some of our latest transom work!


3. Bright Colours


2017-2018 saw more muted and classic tones when it came to entry doors, but 2019 promises to be the year of the brights. Having a statement entryway is a fantastic option for entryways that aren’t large enough for a statement system, or for more modern homeowners who don’t want intricate glass but still want their entrance to be memorable.

4. Clear Glass

A favourite for private entranceways, clear glass beautifully compliments modern architectural homes. Clear glass is on the rise in 2019, usually ordered with an oversized entry system.
