The front door is the focal point of your home. According to Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report for 2017, a stylish and beautiful door can add an average of 90.7 percent of your cost to the value to your home. A new entry door not only boosts your home’s curb appeal, but improves energy efficiency and security. There are many options available and making the right choice can be overwhelming. To help you get started, let’s take a look at some of the top entry door trends for 2017.
1. Go for the Grand Entryway
Grand entryways are a popular trend. If you want your entryway to be a showstopper, then you should choose a door that is stunning and ornate to welcome guests into it (like the example pictured above.) Keep in mind, however, that you want your door to keep with the overall style of your home
2. Add A Unique Touch
Another way to stand out in 2017 is to be casual, but a little unusual. Consider adding a unique touch such as doors with transom windows (pictured on the right) or even arched doors.
If you have an older home, choose a door that is consistent with the style and era of your home. Unsure of your options? We have lots to offer!
3. It’s Time to Go Bigger
Front doors are becoming larger. If you have a high enough ceiling in your entrance hall, you may wish to consider an eight, or perhaps even nine-foot-tall door. In addition to growing taller, doors are getting wider, some designs are three-and-a-half feet wide. Therma-Tru currently offers a door measuring three-foot six-inch-wide, and eight-foot-tall.
4. Energy Efficiency is a Must

Don’t Wait to Make it Great!
Any time is a great time to replace your entry door. Especially if you are upgrading to a more energy-efficient door. The sooner you have your new door installed, the sooner you can begin saving money on your utility bills.
