Top 15 Best Exterior (Black) Front Doors

top 15 best exterior (black) front doors

I know that many of you have asked me for help to find your favorite door from my post 22  Stunning Black Front Door Inspirations, so I have put together a list of my top 15 picks!   Of course my choices do lean a little more to farmhouse, cottage, coastal, or traditional/transitional styles, but I did add a couple of modern door selections to give everyone a couple of options.   They also come in several different colors (other than black), in case you are searching for a certain style.  So, whether you are looking for wood, fiberglass, steel or metal, there should be at least one that will bring new life to the front of your home!  Here is:  Top 15 Exterior (Black) Front Doors.

Here is our new front door (4-lite) with satin nickel handle, just to give you an idea of what it looks like.

Top 15 Best Exterior (Black) Front Doors

I just wanted to answer a couple of questions that you may have (we had these too) when searching for replacement or new front doors.

#1:  What is meant by a pre-hung door versus a door slab?

  • Basically, a pre-hung door will have the frame (and items listed below) and a door slab is just the door.
  • If you are just replacing your door, you can just buy the door slab.
  • If you are putting in a new door, changing the door size, moving the door placement, or going from a single to double door entry, you will need a pre-hung door.

FYI:  We bought a pre-hung door because my husband didn’t like the insulation (“seal”) of our original door.   Plus we had to order a custom door (due to the height), so the pre-slung door just made more sense for us.

#2:  What is meant my inswing and outswing, and right and left for your doors?

This one trips me up a little (lol), but hopefully the picture below will help you.

So basically you would stand on the exterior side of your home.

  • For Inswing, your door is swinging INSIDE your home, and then you look at what side the HINGES of the door are on.
  • For Outswing, your door is swinging OUTSIDE of your home, and then you look at what side the DOOR HANDLE is on.

#3:  What is the best material for front doors (like steel, wood, or fiberglass)?

*I will do another post on the pros and cons, and advantages and disadvantages in a separate post.*

I just wanted to list some things to think about:  

  • Price/budget, insulation, energy efficiency, & wear and tear
  • Maintenance, custom design, and style/look/texture 
  • And don’t forget about painting or staining options

Ok – let’s get to the top 15 best exterior (black) front doors!
