Our Predictions For Next Year

We’re rapidly approaching the end of the year, and the first Christmas lights are already going up. While it might seem a bit early, it’s time to start thinking about what 2023 will bring. Here at Endurance Doors, we like to keep our fingers on the pulse of popular trends and we’ve already got some predictions for next year.

So, if you want to know about the next big thing for designer doors, read on for our predictions. You might even want to bookmark this article and come back to it in twelve months, and reflect on how many of these we got right.

More Glass

We’ve seen increased interest in our glazing options this past year. Homeowners want their front doors to come with lots of glass so they can bathe their houses in natural light and make them look warm and inviting. We expect the demand for designs like the Vega profile from our Avantal collection to go up.

We don’t do interior doors at Endurance, but some of our colleagues from the industry have noticed a similar trend. Internal doors with extra glass are becoming more popular, and multiple glazing options are now available to maintain privacy and manage temperatures.

Larger Doors

We’ve noticed another trend from the interior door industry throughout 2022; a taste for bigger, wider doors. An oversized door makes a powerful statement, and they are certainly well suited for use in wide corridors. We’re expecting this to cross over into the external door business as well.

In other words, we’re predicting that bigger doors will be all the rage in 2023. We’re expecting greater demand for double doors and French doors because of their grand and luxurious appearance.

Wood Finishes

There’s a certain rustic charm about traditional timber doors, but they’re not well suited to modern life. A typical wooden door is less energy efficient than a uPVC or composite door, and they don’t filter out external noise as well. Doors that combine the charm of wood with the benefits of modern technology however, have never been more appealing.

That’s why we’re expecting more interest in wood finishes for 2023. Timber has been widely used in construction for as long as doors have existed, but it’s now possible to find wood designs with extravagant patterns and dramatic touches. People can buy composite doors with elaborate wooden designs, and we can’t see the interest declining anytime soon.

You’ve probably got a few ideas of your own about what will be popular next year. You may be nodding along in agreement with our predictions, or think we’re completely wrong, but we’re confident in our choices. And maybe you’re thinking about getting started on designing your own front door.

How Are Composite Doors Made?

17 Laminations

Our composite doors are made up of 17 laminations with a solid timber core. We use BBA accredited, engineered LVL (laminated veneered lumber.). Our 48mm thick core offers exceptional stability and eliminates the possibility of warping over time. Each door is manufactured with an integrated Moisture Barrier System in the base of the door which protects your door from water damage, delamination and maintains its integrity, avoiding common problems with composite doors.


Door Skin

Endurance composite doors feature a laminated door skin with a highly weatherproof and durable acrylic layer, offering exciting vivid colours and luxurious wood effect designs that perfectly match the door frames into which they are installed. Our replacement front doors are finished with a foiled 3D Cool Skin that features an embossed woodgrain texture to offer a surface that won’t crack or fade. Available in 16 colours ranging from neutral shades to bold bright tones, you can create a composite door solution that is colour lasting and will continue to look great even after years of use. Once you’ve selected the style, and design of your new door and applied your preferred colour you can add finishing touches to your composite door with a wide selection of hardware and security options. Select from handles, knockers and letter plates to personalise your door and make it your own.

Hardware Options

With 10 hardware colours to choose from including Gold, Graphite, Antique Black and Chrome you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to putting the final touch to your composite door. Created to blend into the surroundings of your property and to complement your existing décor, we know that you’ll be pleased with the finished result.

what are the benefits of the solid timber core external doors

Solid Timber Core

The Endurance door has a solid core unlike others. This robustness means there are more advantages and far fewer problems with composite doors from us compared to other companies.

With 48mm thick cross-bonded veneered laminated timber door lead, Endurance composite doors deliver lateral strength and unrivalled stability.

We use Kerto LVL for our solid core, a material which is incredibly strong and dimensionally stable timber beam. The makeup of our solid core is designed so that it can be cut to any height or width without affecting its integral strength.

Our solid core competitors use cores that incorporate less dense mixed species woods with a stile and rail subframe. The core’s strength comes from the outer subframe in these doors. A narrow or short door involves cutting into this subframe and cutting away the strength of the door. These doors don’t always hold their shape when facing the temperature changes of British weather and central heating.

We are so confident in the quality of our Endurance composite door we offer a 3mm bowing guarantee on our doors.
