Step back in time to the Edwardian Britain of the early 20th century, a period that shared its style with the grandeur of the Victorian era, but had its own unique flair. The front doors of this era were more than just entrances; they were statements of wealth and taste, leaving a lasting impression on anyone passing by.

As the Edwardian era dawned, front door designs became more intricate and unique. Glass panels often included beautiful stained glass designs, and the doors often featured elegant curves, top lights and side lights.

Embracing the Victorian legacy of grandeur, many Edwardian front doors boasted multiple leaded glass panes and combinations of stained glass with textured glass to create a striking effect. Intricate panelling and moulding designs added an extra element of individuality and decoration.

But the Edwardians also knew the power of simplicity. Among the lavish designs, you’d often find elegant four-panelled doors, tastefully complemented by etched glass panels, exuding a sense of understated elegance.

Regardless of a property’s style or social standing, one thing was clear: an imposing front door was an absolute must for every Edwardian homeowner. Today, this timeless trend still captures our hearts, inspiring homeowners to embrace the grandeur and originality of the past.


What did Edwardian doors look like?

Edwardian doors serve as prominent features in properties from the Edwardian era, distinguished by their ornate detailing, including elaborate paneling, stained glass embellishments and decorative porches. During the Edwardian period, doors were characterised by intricately carved panels and frames adorned in a diverse palette of painted colours, often employing contrasting shades for heightened visual impact. A common feature was the inclusion of a sizable glazed overhead top light and side lights.

What colour did Edwardians paint their front doors?

During the Edwardian era, people often painted their front doors in bright colors like blues, reds and greens. These vibrant tones added a lively and expressive look to the homes of that time.

How do I identify an Edwardian house?

Identifying an Edwardian house involves recognising specific architectural features. Look for Mock-Tudor cladding, six over two panel sash windows with larger glass panes and a sense of larger proportions in the overall structure. Ornate designs influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement and timber-framed porches are also common characteristics associated with Edwardian homes.
