3 Exterior Door Trends for 2020
There are fashion trends, market trends, entertainment trends, and trends for just about every element of our lives. So it’s no surprise that there are ever changing exterior door trends. If you want a trendy entry door that impresses your friends and family when they come to visit, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the current fashion. Here are 3 of our favorite exterior door trends for 2020:
The Year of Gray
Gray has long been an underrated neutral color. While a colorless look can be bleak and boring, gray has many, versatile shades, some of which can be perfect for your entry door. A rich deep gray can look stately and elegant. Even a light grey can be airy and modern. Gray is a great exterior door color for homes with contemporary designs, and when done right, it can add a seamless cohesion to your design.
Gloss or Semigloss Paint
Speaking of color, Gloss or semigloss paint are typically the best sheens of paint when it comes to your entry door. Gloss and semigloss are more likely to resist nicks and scratches so that the color has a chance to shine. They also have a more vibrant look that’s likely to last longer. This is especially smart if you use a bold color for your door. For instance, despite the emergence of gray, red is one door color that has never and will never go out of style.
Alternatives to Wood
Wood has an unbeatable, classic look. Unfortunately, wood doors are also higher maintenance, because of their porous nature. That’s why many homeowners look for alternatives to wood. Fiberglass doors, like those from ThermaTru, have come a long way over the years. Now you can have a fiberglass door that imitates the look of wood, without the hassle or the upkeep. They’ll likely last for a longer period of time, and protect your home from both the elements and any potential intruders.
