The most common door size is 3 feet wide × 6.8 feet high. In newer homes, it’s increasingly common to have doors as high as 8 feet. Before you purchase a new door, be sure to get accurate measurements.
Sidelites (vertical windows on one or both sides of your door) and transoms (horizontal windows above your door) add presence to your entry and let in more natural light. Ask your building professional what configurations will work in your situation.
