Fiberglass is one of the most durable materials in the world. That’s why it’s become such a favorite for entry doors. A fiberglass entry door stands up strong against the northern California climate. It won’t warp or bend regardless of how the temperature changes or the moisture in the air. This type of entry door isn’t simply utilitarian. Fiberglass doors have style. Here are some fiberglass door trends we’re watching for 2019.
Fiberglass Is Versatile
Fiberglass offers the look of real stained or painted wood without any of the maintenance. Often, when using high-quality finishing, it’s hard to tell the difference between real wood and fiberglass entry doors. You can find fiberglass doors that look great with a variety of architectural styles. From Craftsman to modern to traditional, there is a fiberglass door for any home.
A pop of bold color on the entry door can take your curb appeal up a notch. While most entry doors are a wood finish or painted white, more and more homeowners are choosing to boost their home’s first impression with a colorful door.
Looking at what colors are hot for 2019, there’s the Pantone color of the year, Living Coral. This soft pinking orange hue could be just the boost your exterior needs. Benjamin Moore named a new color palette for 2019 that includes some smoky grays, navy, and some cool green blue shades.
The key to making this trend work is that the color should be a nice complement to your home’s color. It also shouldn’t match shutters, trim, or other features. Everything else should be neutral, otherwise, it can go from looking whimsical to gaudy.
Choose factory finishing on your fiberglass entry door, and the color is sealed in for a long life. No touch-ups or maintenance required either.
Adding glass to a fiberglass entry door lets the natural light in, bestowing your entryway a more welcoming feel. You can also choose to adorn one or both sides with sidelites for more brightness.
Depending on the style of your home, you might prefer simple glass over the more ornate version seen on traditional homes. These traditional decorative glasses also often add grilles for more visual interest.
Craftsman doors offer a one-third lite, that may or may not be divided. These glass panels look perfect under a small shelf, indicative of Craftsman design.
The standard six-panel door is not your only choice! There are lots of different panel styles, and the most popular one in our area continues to be the Craftsman door. It has a one-third panel above two parallel panels, all flat. More modern doors feature flat panels in as many as four, which can be glass or solid.
Modern is in for 2019; ornate is out, so choose a fiberglass door that has straight, simple lines.
