Edwardian Front Doors to Suit Your Home

This article was published on May 7, 2024

The Edwardian period, lasting from 1901-1910, was a short, art inspired period, following on from a rise in property construction in the Victorian era. Edwardian homes were constructed with simple designs, with an appreciation for handmade craftsmanship, these homes were designed with a light and airy feel to them. With a focus on larger gardens, Edwardian properties were mainly built with red brickwork in suburban areas, and are known for being wider and larger than Victorian homes, and have larger hallways, more windows.

Find out about the perfect Edwardian-style doors to match your home below.

Popular Edwardian Door Colours

Looking to complement the Edwardian aesthetic of your home, or put your own modern spin on one of our heritage doors? In the Edwardian period, dark colours tended to be the choice of colour, designed to complement the architectural style of the buildings. Common colours included:

  • Deep Green – One of the most popular colours of the Edwardian period is deep green, a rich colour symbolising growth and abundance, complementing the standard red brickwork of these houses.
  • Muted Blues – A dark medium shade of sky blue, a warm colour representing elegance and authority. This colour is a brilliant complement to Edwardian-style properties.
  • Rich Browns – A dark brown can add a touch of warmth and comfort to your period home, or perhaps depth and mystery. A popular colour in the Edwardian era, a rich brown colour will elevate the surrounding red brickwork of your home.

Ultimately, it is entirely up to the homeowner to decide on the colour that they find best-suited to their property, and with over 150 options available, there are plenty to choose from.
