21 Black Front Door Designs for An Elegant-Looking Living Space

Having a black front door at home has been the most common. It is easy, and the neutral color fits with almost all other colors. Whether it is your house, apartment, or even an office building, this kind of door is timeless.

Many homeowners prefer a front door that is elegant, exciting, and classy. With the black front door, you can offer the best first impression of your home to your guests. They can see and also feel it.

Here are some of the examples you may consider:

1. The Fairfield Modern Farmhouse

Living in a farmhouse usually means fun and simplicity. However, this does not mean you cannot have a touch of elegance in it. Having a black front door for your farmhouse entryway is one way for that.

This design by Keren Berkemeyer is a nice contrast to the porcelain floor and the gray floor. The white-painted, wood pallet wall also makes the door a nice focal point from the inside.

2. The Black Front Door Before the Square, Red-Brick Steps

This type of house is often seen in the North American homes by the corner of the big cities. The black front door is the focal point from both sides, either from the outside or the inside.

With the white frame and the square, red-brick stone steps before the door, you get a classic, elegant entrance. You can even add a matching pair of easy chairs for relaxing. Just place them on each side, with the door in the middle.

3. The Rustic Canyon New Home

Designed by Tim Barber’s Architectural Team, this type of entryway is often seen in Los Angeles homes. The black front door is placed with the traditional entryway before it. There are stairs before you can step on the entryway.

The black-and-white combination is also common here. This white farmhouse look has two matching pillars that support the entryway. Although rather small for a relaxing space, the plants around it give a fresh look of the entire set.

4. The Black Front Door Before the Circular Stone

This black front door has a hexagonal brass-knocker at the center. The doorknob is also lower than most similar doors. From the outside, this design gives a royal look of the entire house. It is even better if the house is big and with two-storys.

The circular stone steps before the door also add another majestic look to the house. As if they are not enough, there are two lean, black metal railings on each side and classic-looking lamps attached to the wall on each side of the door.

5. The Entry by Paul Moon

If you feel bored by the black-and-white design, you can still go with other neutral colors. This entry design by Paul Moon is one good example. It has more varied colors on the combination.

For starters, the black front door has a pretty large window on it. The door frame is still white, but the rest of the exterior is of a neutral, earth-tone. There are three lamps on the entryway, one on the ceiling and the other two by the door side.

Another more colorful addition is the orange, Halloween-themed welcome mat. There is a pair of matching white pillars for a more majestic look.

6. The High-Gloss Black Front Door for Your Townhouse

Living in the central city does not leave you enough space. Besides the apartment, a townhouse can be another option. Some townhouses have this kind of a small entryway, with the high-gloss, black front door.

Some townhouses also have a nice door like this, with a brass mail handle. There is also a brass hand-knocker in the center of the door. The door is also lined with a pair of white columns. The regular stone steps lead straight to the door.

7. The Black Front Door Entrance for Your Garden

Apparently, having a black front door is not just for your home. If you have a “secret garden” behind the high, red brick wall, you can have this too instead of a regular, iron-bar fence.

Designed by Overmyer Architects, this garden door gives an elegant impression on its entryway. To accentuate it, you can have a gold or brass-plated number or name on the door.

8.The Leaded Glass, Double Doors

Instead of just one black front door, you can have a pair for your royal big house. With leaded glass, brass handles, and bolt locks underneath the panel, the large entrance structure is perfectly mirrored.

For more elegance, the exterior of the house can be made of great quality red bricks. Keep the entryway low, with just a pair of small brick steps. A pair of thick, white pillars and more plants in the yard make the house look more beautiful.

The black front door has always been an easy addition to everyone’s home. What makes it look more elegant and timeless is how it is designed.
