New year means new design trends. Get ready for a fresh wave of architectural statements, ranging from minimalist masterpieces to grand entrances. Here are a few of the top 2024 door design trends you should expect to see in homes:

Maximizing Minimalism

Optimizing space and minimizing optics are not going anywhere any time soon. Simple flat panels that create a seamless exterior, rectangular geometric shapes and flush mounting all help to create a visually unified entrance.

Minimal hardware with hidden hinges, neutral tones and natural materials also helps declutter the door, emphasizing a functional and harmonious aesthetic.

Return to Earthy Designs

Warm natural colors like terracotta and mustard yellow, textured finishes like reclaimed wood doors and stone accents, plus the curved shapes of soft arches are making a return in 2024. Reminiscent of the 70s with pops of color, doorways will emulate warmth and welcome in the new year.

This return embodies the new focus on sustainable materials and better connecting homes with their green surroundings.

Blurring Indoors and Outdoors

Floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive doors will help integrate anyone's living room with the outside world. This is an increase in biophilic design, which emphasizes bringing nature into built environments to improve the owner’s quality of life.

Technological advancements in door design make this possible with improved insulation, automated systems, and weather-resistant materials that do not sacrifice energy efficiency or safety for the expansive aesthetic.

Sustainability is a Priority

Eco-conscious materials and practices are at the top of consumer minds. Sustainably sourced wood, recycled materials and upcycled elements will play a big role in entryway construction in 2024.

Sustainability also means longevity and an investment in high-quality materials whether it be metal, stone or treated wood. Opting for doors finished with natural oils and waxes and looking into responsible manufacturing all help contribute to a greener future.

Smart Homes, Smart Doors

The use of technology and automation will continue to grow in the new year as homeowners build even smarter houses. From smart locks, automatic door openers and built-in screens at front entrances will continue to revolutionize the use of doors.

Smart doors drive the need for convenience, security and personalization. Whether they unlock through a keypad, fingerprint or voice command, smart doors are a part of 2024 and the far-out future.
