We’re one third of the way through 2018 already and this year is proving to be as revolutionary as ever in the UK door industry. With hundreds of new styles available on the market every few years, choosing the right door for you can be a daunting experience – especially for first time buyers, or those of you who have never had the pleasure of choosing new doors before.
With so many beautiful new designs to choose from, we thought we would highlight our favourites for the year ahead – doors we believe will turn the most heads, designs which are already proving to be a hit with our customers. So, without further ado, let’s kick off the countdown of our top 5 must have door styles for 2018;

A front-runner for our most popular door of 2018, the Ripple design is a wonderful addition to the Liberty Doors brand. With it’s mesmerising ripple faced design, your guests will be leaving your home green with envy and we guarantee the first thing they ask is where you got them! If you like the idea of your home being the centre of attention (in a good way!) then this is the style for you.
The simple semi-ripple patterned design is a textured face, covering around 90% of the front and back face of the door. Accompanied by two smooth stiles vertically down the door, the contrast is stark, yet the final effect leaves a subtle and appealing aura. This design is also available as an FD30 minute rated fire door, which is a requirement for some properties – read more here.

When buying a new door, the number one question we get asked is “Do you sell fully finished doors?”, and the answer is yes. Nobody wants hassle when it comes to decorating, that’s why the Monet fully finished door simply had to be included on this list. Not only does the gorgeous 5 panel horizontal panel design scream ‘pick me!’, but thanks to the door being fully finished, they really are the number one DIY choice for internal doors.
The luxurious finish means that the Monet is pretty much ready to hang, straight out of the box. With very minimal work involved, you can order with a peace of mind, and you might even save a few bob on fitting costs. This is a new take on an already popular design, which is sure to be a hit this year. Also available as an FD30 fire door, making the door suitable for most applications.
