Victorian and Edwardian front doors are characterised by a distinctive aesthetic with their panels. In the mid-to-late 19th Century, four-panelled doors saw a sharp rise in popularity, and this continues to be the case right up until the present day. In this era of history, homeowners were keen to make a grand impression. Victorian front doors achieved this by often choosing sidelights with decorative glass, featuring all kinds of designs from textured and a milky opaque look to intricate stained patterns.

Victorian vs Edwardian Front Doors

For many people, the classifications of the Victorian and Edwardian eras are used somewhat interchangeably. By their definition of which monarch was on the throne, the Victorian Era spanned from 1837 to 1901, and the Edwardian Era following from 1901 to 1910. With the briefness of the latter, many people will group these eras together into one – certainly when it comes to the designs of these eras.

When it comes to choosing Victorian front doors and Edwardian front doors, there are few differences in their overall distinctive designs and they share the highly desirable aesthetics that make them so sought after for homeowners all across the UK.

Victorian and Edwardian front doors alike are renowned for their elegance and classic appeal. Both of these designs were created to make a grand first impression for any visitors to the property. Then as now, your front door is a vibrant way to express your personality, your character and that of your home.
