Opening all the windows in your home is one of the first sure signs spring has arrived! After a long winter, you might notice your home is in need of a little love. Tackling spring cleaning is much easier if you open all the windows, turn up some great music and get moving!
As one of the top interior design trends of 2019, matte black is making more of an appearance in hardware, lighting, furniture, ceramics, and general home accents. Another place the esteemed color is also popping up on: front doors.
Whether you’re thinking of switching your porch design up this year or about to build the home of your dreams, a black front door is a modern choice that will be in style for years to come. Here are five inspiring front doors that draw you in from the moment you lay eyes on them.

The sharp contrast of this home’s black full light entry door with its white board-and-batten siding makes it shine and stand out from the minute you step onto the street. Other black accents – varying sizes of casement windows, the roof, porch columns and upstairs railing – add additional personality while creating a seamless statement. Photo by M House Development.

If you’re looking for curb appeal done right, look no further than this stunning modern farmhouse, which features metal columns, a three-panel matte black front door and windows instead of sidelights. Using this design technique allows more light into the home and creates an iconic look.

We love the star grille on this home’s front door window, especially when it’s paired with a custom carriage house garage door with crossbuck overlays. The black roofing and solid panel entry door tie all of the architectural details together while the circular window adds visual interest to the home. Considering replacing your garage door? Choose a style that complements the windows and front door you have. Photo by M House Development.
