Top Design Trends for Storm Doors

Top Design Trends for Storm Doors

Storm doors can not only provide an extra layer of security to your home and extend the lifespan of your front door, but they can add curb appeal. Here’s the top storm door design trends to watch for in 2023. 

 If you choose to install a storm door, keep in mind these styles and features that have become more popular in recent years and can increase your home’s visual appeal and resale value. 

 Fashion and Function 

Full View Glass Panes 

Storm doors with full view glass panes not only act as that extra layer of insulation, but they can also be used as a large window. Opening your main exterior door and leaving your storm door locked lets in natural light without letting in the bugs and the weather. Consequently, this could save you money on your utility bills if you’re used to simply leaving your front door open to get a breath of fresh air. 

 Depending on your home’s style and front door function, you can opt for a storm door with a panel of glass at the top and a solid door panel at the bottom. This can make you feel a little less exposed and is a good choice for a home that has less of a minimalist or modern flare. 

 Interchangeable Full Screen 

When deciding on a storm door, look for products that have an interchangeable screen and glass insert. This allows you to have the option to install a screen door in the warmer months, to allow the fresh air in, and install the glass insert when you need some extra insulation. 

 Pet Door 

Nothing is more in fashion than convenience and that’s what you get when you add a pet door to your storm door. More of us have pets than ever before and a storm door with a secure pet access on not just a pet parent trend, it’s unmatched convenience!  

Style and Color 


Aluminum has been the most popular option for storm doors by far, and for good reason. It is the most durable door material and the easiest to install. It also comes in varying levels of thickness. The thicker the material, the more secure, durable, and insulating the door. 


You can make your screen door fade into the background or choose to make it pop. Either choice is on trend. Popular design options in 2023 are to match your storm door frame color to your front door while another trending choice is to match your screen door to your trim. For a bolder look, choose a storm door color that matches your siding. Thompson Creek storm doors have an array of colors to choose from which means you won’t have to struggle with repainting year after year. 

 Satin Nickel Finishes 

The type of finish you should choose for your storm door hardware depends on the color of your exterior door, as well as your personal preference. However, satin brushed nickel is the most frequently bought hardware finish in recent years. Choosing a finish that’s popular is a good tactic if you decide to list your home, as it can increase your curb appeal and make your home more preferred to the average homebuyer. Selecting a storm door that allows you a choice of hardware can help make sure your storm door matches the style of your front door.
