Many of you will have been unaware that front doors go through trends as it’s not a frequent purchase such as trousers or coats, but door designs do follow patterns of popularity. Whilst you may not be one of those people who needs to be on trend, taking guidance on what styles are in favour can have a lasting impact on the value of your home.
Bright, bold colours have been a big trend over the last couple of years and this seems set to continue. It’s a sure way of adding kerb appeal to your home, making it warm and inviting to visitors, and will add a smile to your face on those grey days.
If you’re unsure on whether to brave the bold, have a drive around your local area to see what your neighbours have chosen; you’ll probably find your eyes are diverted to the more colourful doors.
Here at ERW, we have over 150 colours to choose from so you’ll be sure to find your perfect match. You can find our colour chart here.
Opting for a wider front door adds a sense of grandeur to your entrance and is set to be a big trend this year. An added bonus of wider doors is the end of the struggle of moving furniture in and out of your home.
Would you like a wider entrance but would rather stick to a standard size door? Installing large glass sidelights is another way to add width and will flood your hallway with natural light.
Choosing the style of door is just one part of renovating your entrance way; lead detailing and ironmongery also need to be considered to ensure the end result matches your style and specifications. This is where you can be really creative and stamp your personality on your entrance.
Whether you opt for a traditional style, more contemporary design or a bespoke composition one thing is certain: lead detailing will be on trend for many years to come. Adding coloured glass adds interest and warmth, whilst choosing clear glass with lead detail can really add an impact to your entrance.
We recommend choosing the best quality handle, knocker and letterbox to maximise the aesthetics of your door. With regards to what’s on trend, it really is down to the style of door you choose. More modern styled doors suit contemporary handles, whereas door knobs are on trend for more traditional styled doors
As we’re all becoming more aware of the impact of plastics on the environment, a big trend set to stay is opting for sustainable materials. People are looking to purchase products which have a low carbon footprint and that can be recycled; the solution for this, with regards to doors and windows, is choosing timber.
Timber doors produce less CO2 emissions in the manufacturing process compared to its uPVC counterpart and, with correct maintenance, lasts much longer too. When the time comes that your door does need replacing, if you’re still around (wooden doors can last over 65 years if maintained properly) you can recycle it.
Here at ERW, we take sustainability seriously. We only use sustainably sourced European Redwood, and any waste produced is used in heating our workshop to try to reduce our carbon footprint.

Our whole experience with ERW joiners has been absolutely first class. Our first meeting was a showroom appointment with Stuart Wall, I personally loved the showroom straightaway, the colours of the sample doors blew me away.
To the skilled craftsmen of joiners who made our front door, who we have not met, but who we will forever be grateful too – their craftsmanship is beyond compare – thank you so very much.
I just wanted to send you our thanks for yet another superb installation yesterday by Dan and crew……(our ‘phase 3’). The face-lift to our property this year has been a true transformation and your installers are always so courteous and helpful. Five star service
