36”x80” is the standard door size in the US. Naturally Doors that are 36”x96” (3 feet wide and 8 feet tall) are the most common. If you like tall and slim – choose this option.

Not only can you use them as Front Doors; even as side or back doors, 3’0’ x 8’0’ doors look impressive. Like regular sized doors, you can have them in different styles, get them ‘Dutched’, add glass, or install a doggy door.

8ft Tall Single Entry Doors that are 42" Wide (or 48" Wide): 

Single 42 inch wide and 8 ft tall doors give a more proportionate look. They look really nice in a home with a 9 foot high ceiling.

The downside is that fiberglass 42” wide doors along with the wider 48”x96” have limited choices when it comes to styles and glass options.

Extra Wide 8 Foot Tall Double Entry Doors (Each Door 36 Inches Wide or 34 Inches wide): 

A small or standard height door will look odd with a 9 foot ceiling. An average sized door in a house with soaring roof and 10’, 11’ or even 12’ ceiling will look really strange – even funny.

That’s where 5’8”x8’0 (5 feet, 8 inches wide and 8 feet tall) and 6’0x8’0 (6 feet wide and 8 feet tall) doors come to the rescue. These wider and tall doors will certainly give your home a stately look.
