Top Trends in Entry and Patio Doors

Even a small change, like upgrading your front door, or updating your patio door, can give your entire exterior a facelift. Here are some of the biggest trends in entry and patio doors in 2017.

Color-me-Impressed!

A hot trend in exterior doors right now is color.  Many homeowners are opting for a bright pop of color that contrasts with the rest of the color scheme of their homes’ exteriors. If you want to go Feng Sui, then choose a red door. If bright colors are not for you, then you may want to choose a color that coordinates, rather than contrasts, with your exterior trim color. Either way, first impressions are important, so you should consider how you want to feel when you look at your home from the curb-side of it.

Multi Panel Doors + The Illusion of Space

Another trend to consider, especially for sliding glass doors, is the multi panel door. This allows you to create a design that marries the indoor and outdoor space on your home by allowing easy passage between the two.  If you’re working with a bit smaller of an area, then a multi-panel door can give the magical illusion of space and make your home feel more open.

The Dharma Sliding Door

Okay, okay. We’re a bit biased. But these patio doors are incredible. Not only do they function smoothly, but you have dozens of options of styles and colors.

  • 3 standard colors (Soft-White™, Beige, and Brown) and 16 PVC exterior color bond options.
  • 4 interior woodgrains (Light Oak, Medium Oak, Cherry, and Brazilian Cherry).
  • 8 different designer handles, including Nickel, Brass, and Oil-Rubbed Bronze.

…. we could go on and on. There’s also the fact that these are vinyl sliding doors, which are cost effective, energy efficient, and just plain gorgeous. See for yourself in our gallery!
