Oversized front door

Why go big?

An oversized front door can make a bold statement and create a grand entrance for your home. It can also provide better accessibility for those with mobility issues or large items that need to be moved in and out of the house. But what exactly constitutes an oversized front door, and how do you determine the right size for your home? In this blog post, we’ll explore the various dimensions of oversized front doors, as well as some factors to consider when choosing one for your home.

Standard Front Door Sizes

Before diving into the world of oversized front doors, it’s essential to understand the standard sizes available in the market. Most residential front doors come in widths ranging from 762mm –  to 915mm and heights between 2000mm and 2135mm. These dimensions are considered standard because they provide ample space for people to pass through while still being manageable in terms of weight and installation.

However, if you’re looking to make a statement or accommodate specific needs, an oversized front door might be just what you need.

Oversized Front Door Dimensions

While there isn’t a strict definition of what constitutes an oversized front door, these doors typically exceed the standard dimensions mentioned above. Here are some common oversized front door sizes:

1. Width: Oversized hinged front doors can go up to 1400mm or even wider for custom designs based on the Pivot hinge system. Wider doors offer better accessibility for wheelchairs or moving large furniture pieces in and out of your home.

2. Height: In terms of height, oversized doors can reach up to 3000mm. Taller doors create a sense of grandeur and luxury while also accommodating taller individuals or unique architectural features.

3. Thickness: While not always considered when discussing size, an oversized door’s thickness can also play a role in its overall appearance and functionality. Standard residential doors are typically 35mm thick, while our oversized doors from the D72 range are all 72mm thick. A thicker door provides better insulation and soundproofing, as well as added durability.

Factors to Consider When Choosing an Oversized Front Door

Now that you have a better understanding of the dimensions involved in oversized front doors, here are some factors to consider when choosing one for your home:

2. Material: The material of your oversized front door will affect its appearance, durability, and maintenance requirements.

3. Budget: Oversized front doors can be more expensive than standard-sized doors due to their larger size and the need for custom manufacturing in some cases. Be sure to factor in the cost of the door itself as well as installation when determining your budget.

4. Installation: Installing an oversized front door may require additional structural support or modifications to your existing entryway. It’s essential to work with a professional installer who has experience with oversized doors to ensure proper installation and prevent potential issues down the line.

Conclusion
