8 Foot Door Configurations – For a Lofty and Expansive Entrance

If your home has a tall and wide entrance – double 30” (5 foot wide) doors that are 8’0” tall will give your home a stately look.

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.

If you like tall and slim – go for an 8 ft door with standard 36 inch width. You may also find wider 42 inch single doors that are 8’ tall.

For a more impressive appearance – go for an 8 foot tall exterior door with sidelights – even add a transom. A grand entryway will definitely elevate your entrance from ordinary to extraordinary.
