The best looking front doors

As the saying goes, beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, the same goes for doors – when it comes to the best looking front doors, it all boils down to personal preference.

That said, if you think you’ll move to a new house in the future, you might want to think about tailoring your new front door to the style of your home for added kerb appeal. For example, a contemporary Composite Anthracite Grey Door looks great on a modern rendered property, yet it may not be the best solution for a stone-built cottage, a uPVC Chartwell Green Stable Door might be a better match. Both options (and many more!) are available from Independent Network. Contact your local installer for guidance on choosing a new front door.

There are so many boxes to tick when it comes to creating the best looking front door including the design, style, colour, hardware and glazing. Our round up of doors will guide you on the options available from Independent Network. Remember, pretty much any design can be made from uPVC, so if your dream door isn’t here, it can likely be created by one of our dedicated Independent Network fabricators. Simply contact your local installer for advice on all the options available.

Here’s our round up of the best looking front doors:

Wood Panel Style Front Door

This panelled uPVC Door in Balmoral is the perfect suit for a brick-built home.
