When it comes to creating a front door that works for you, there is plenty of choice to choose from. Gone of the days of a one-size-fits-all that had only a coat of paint to make it stand out against your neighbour’s door. These days, there are a wealth of styles and features to make your front door stand out and fit your home design goals to really express your personality. Take a look at our guide to creating a front door that stands out to find out how to create the perfect front door for you.

Why Your Front Door Choice Matters

When it comes to first impressions of your home, the front door is where it all starts. Like the quirky front doors that grace Instagram pages, your front door is a way to express your personality with a style that matches you and your home. After all, we spend a lot of time personalising the inside of our homes, why not personalise the outside. Your front door can say relaxed and traditional or suave and sophisticated and set the tone for the rest of your home. When it comes to choosing your new front door, you’ll also have the chance to decide exactly what features you want from your front door so it is important to choose the right door style that will last you for years to come.


What Front Door Styles Are There?

As door specialists, RB Windows supply door styles to fit every design choice, whether you are looking for an ultra-modern door design that wows with a pop of colour or looking for a cosy-looking door to welcome you home, we have the door styles for you. For solid hardwood doors that offer a wealth of security options, Solidor doors are ideal. Alternatively, a Residor door complies with right up-to-date security testing in every colour and comes fitted with an Ultion cylinder that offers a £1,000 break in guarantee. UPVC doors offer endless styles to choose from with complete customisation available when it comes to choosing which windows and how many windows to fit to your front door. UPVC doors are one of the most popular types of front door styles as they offer a traditional look that can be customised to fit the look and feel of your home whilst providing a wide range of security features.

French doors are also a popular choice for any home that is looking for impact and allow more space than traditional doors whilst still retaining a traditional door feel. Double doors can be a great alternative to sliding patio doors for those who require additional space whilst still retaining the functionality of a standard front door style.

For those looking to make a statement, aluminium bi-folding doors give the ultimate impact. With between two and seven panels, bi-folding doors allow you to almost completely open up one wall of your home and give an ultra-modern look. Alternatively, UPVC patio doors are stylish yet practical and allow more light to enter your home than traditional door fittings. All our patio doors are incredibly energy efficient so you don’t need to compromise when it comes to light and performance.
