If you love large, overarching ledges and intricate design, formal front doors are right for you. Iron, brick and dark wood are commonly used for a formal entrance. Pillars and a grand staircase are often featured as part of an elegant front door style as well.

Bold & Bright

A little bit more on the edgy side, bright colored doors scream trendy and cute. A bright, bold color paired with simple plants and a white backdrop make for a memorable, style-enhanced front door. If you're not afraid to take a risk - go for it! Everyone will be wishing they did the same.

Classic and timeless, the colonial front door style is one trend that will never end. Faded colors and worn details work well in an entrance such as this. Barn doors with wide wood panels and white washed wooden features make for a perfect colonial front door.

City Style

A bit more unique and contemporary, city style front doors range from bold colors to washed out shades. Brick buildings are the usual backdrop for a city apartment door, so dressing it up with plant or two can make a big difference.

Beach House

A beach house front door is a bit different than any other front door. These are the doors that allow for pastels or eye-catching colors. Similar to nautical home design, beach house front doors should use white to color block and create the desired look.
