What You Need to Know About New Style Front Doors

For those who appreciate a more modern or contemporary aesthetic, new style front doors can allow you to express your personal style while improving your curb appeal. Generally, certain elements make up the larger category, including:

  • Clean Lines
  • Minimalist Design
  • Geometric Patterns

While other styles can share some of these aspects, like Craftsman, new style front doors typically lack the distinct panels found in those designs.

Additionally, any wood grain featured in the doors tends to be incredibly linear, forgoing the knots and variances found in many traditional, rustic, or Craftsman doors, though that can vary depending on the wood used. But wood isn’t the only material option as new style front doors can also be constructed of fiberglass/composite or steel.

New style front doors can feature glass, though the inserts generally adhere to the more significant rules associated with the modern or contemporary category by avoiding intricate designs.

Sleek Design

Many new style front doors can easily be described as sleek, clean, minimalist, or flush. Often, the surface is smooth or only lightly textured, promoting an overall modern or contemporary feel. When wood grain is featured, it tends to be subtle in comparison to other styles, though it can still be a distinct feature.

Glass inserts can be included in these doors and may even be framed, creating a picture frame look, though this isn’t always part of the design. When glass is used, a geometric pattern featuring strong lines is generally preferred, though it can be asymmetrical in nature, as this supports the sleek look associated with the style.

Generally, steel front entry doors are the least expensive option, with fiberglass/composite exterior doors being available at a moderate cost. Wood new style front doors will usually be the highest priced option, though a similar look may be achievable for less money through the use of real wood veneers on another material or when fiberglass/composite is cast with a wood grain-style texture.

Paints and Stains

In regards to paints and stains, new style front doors can often be any color. For those who prefer the natural look of wood, light, medium, and dark stains can be appropriate depending on the color of the exterior.

Homeowners who prefer paint can also choose from a variety of options ranging from classic to neon. Since the style of the door tends to be minimalist, strong colors like black and brights, such as turquoise, lime, or canary yellow, can all work well. Subtler options, like white and shades of gray, can create a more reserved look or be used to help the entryway stand out against an unconventional or powerful exterior house paint color.
