4 Replacement Door Trends You’ll See in 2018
The world of replacement doors is always changing and innovating. At Charles Window, we keep an eye on emerging trends in window and door replacement. Here are four of the biggest trends on their way to your local showroom.
1. Bold colors for replacement doors
If you want the look of a new door but you don’t want to replace it, you’d be on-trend to simply paint it a bold color. This has become more popular over the last few years and in 2018 we expect to see more boldly painted doors than ever. We’re seeing lots of homeowners choose a pop of color, such as a bright yellow or vibrant red. There are also plenty of homeowner who choose colors like blue and green. Just remember that simply painting instead of replacing your door will only work if your door is in great shape to begin with.
2. Pocket doors are coming back into style
While we’re seeing lots of changes in exterior doors, they’re of course not the only type of door. Pocket doors are an older option but they’re becoming even more popular. This option is modern and fits within modern styling trends. The doors slide right into the wall instead of opening in or out, which makes them a great choice for today’s popular smaller-house movement too. They’re great for small bathrooms or closets where even a few extra inches of space can make a big difference.
3. Bi-fold doors
If you want to instantly update the way your home looks then you’ll want to seriously consider bi-fold doors. These are retractable doors that you can use to bridge the gap between your backyard and the interior of your home. You’ll find plenty of homeowners install these types of doors to work as a retractable wall as well. They can simply fold back to have a seamless, open space that is both an indoor and outdoor area.
4. Updated hardware
In the last few years, antique brass hardware has been all the rage. That’s changing in 2018. Now we’re seeing stainless steel hardware get more popular than ever before. This is likely part of the minimalism and modern design changes that are getting more popular. While the style of the door itself is important, more homeowners are beginning to realize what a big difference the hardware can make.
