Summertime Door Trends

2016 Door trends to consider when planning your summer home renovations

With summer knocking at the proverbial door it’s the perfect time of year to undertake those home renovations you’ve been putting off. In the interests of not only keeping up with the Joneses but really giving them something to sulk about, familiarise yourself with these top design trends for 2016.

Coloured statement doors

Many people may choose to change the paint colour of their walls to match accents in their room or complement a new piece of furniture, so why not change the colour of your doors to do the same?

Blueberry Hill, Courtyard Green and Ravishing Red are just three of the top door colours for 2016 identified by International colour expert, Kate Smith. The palette consists of earthy, stand-out shades and refers primarily to your front door, which according to Huffington Post New York, says a lot about your personality.

Space-saving sliding doors

Decluttering and simplifying your household is top of the trending charts this year and in keeping with this theme there has been increased demand for interior and exterior doors that slide as opposed to opening out into a room, thus saving space.

In particular, sliding barn doors are all the rage, often boasting rustic wood and metal finishes rounding off a lovely country chic effect.

Expandable folding doors enhancing indoor-outdoor living

The concept of indoor-outdoor living has graced the pages of many home décor magazines recently and it’s easy to see the appeal. Large glass patio doors which are designed to smoothly fold and stack to one side create a natural flow from inside to outside, accentuating the feeling of space and increasing the natural light in your home.

Energy efficient doors

Trends are not only about the look. It’s no secret that energy efficiency is a growing trend in all areas of home design, and when it comes to doors there is no exception. More and more homeowners are selecting exterior doors based on their safety and energy safety attributes. In particular, there has been a rise in installations of composite doors over recent years. Composite doors are carbon fibre reinforced and no timber means no moisture build ups or air leaks.
