What Is the Most Common Door Size?
You may be thinking about installing a beautiful new entry door but wonder how to figure out what size you need. There are some very common door sizes for front entry doors and an incredible assortment of styles to choose from. Here at Today’s Entry Doors, we offer several customizable front entry door choices, but it’s important to know about the basics of door sizes and styles before you start, and we make it easy. So, what are the most common door sizes out there for front entry doors?
Most Common Door Sizes
To make a choice for door size as simple as possible, it’s great to know that there are three main sizes for the average standard exterior door size. The typical height for an entry door is 80 inches with a thickness of 1 ¾ inches. Now, if you have an older home, you may notice that your door opening may be on the smaller end as there have been some changes due to The American Disability Act, which has required new home builders to actually create a door that is at least 3 feet wide. So, the most common entry door widths are 30 inches, 32 inches, and 36 inches, with a typical 80 inches in height and 1 ¾ inch of thickness. Let’s take a closer look at each entry door size.
The 30 Inch Door
This is our typical double-door and includes an eight-foot pair. A double-door makes a bold statement when it comes to your front entry. It can look exceptionally regional, but there are also some beautiful modern choices that fit a very mid-century look. The 30-inch double doors also create more leeway when walking through the front entryway, allowing for easy moves, bringing large gatherings in and out, and making it easier to bring items into your home. It’s truly a bold statement. Our 30-inch door gallery has some wonderful ideas for your front entryway.
The 36 Inch Door
This door is very standard, and it is what you would typically find at the front entryway of a home. It’s important to know that these doors are incredibly functional and satisfy most homes easily without extra customization for sizing. These doors are made for safety and security and also give a solid amount of space for accessibility. Our 36-inch door gallery shows off a beautiful assortment of ideas for this type of door.
The 42 Inch Door
These doors are a bit larger and a bit harder to find. They are customizable but do not typically fit a normal front entry door if there needs to be a direct replacement. To view your options and visualize the size, check out our 42 inch door gallery to see how we can offer a few customizations. Sometimes, a dutch door can be created in the 42-inch size, and just like our other door sizes, you can add glass inserts.
The Eight-Foot Entry Door
Want a door that will really stand out? The eight-foot entry door may just be a great choice for you! This door is extremely high and provides a fantastic present for your curb appeal.
