The Latest in Doors - When Less Door is More

This door trend is one we’re predicting will stand the test of time – narrower frames for bigger views and more light.

July 29, 2022

Throughout our homes, doors do some seriously heavy lifting. Beyond providing access to the outdoors, a well-designed door gracefully frames our view to the world around us. So, when Marvin took to designing the all-new Ultimate Swinging door, light and beauty took center stage
The ideal combination of beauty and strength, the Ultimate Swinging door features more glass for more light and more views. Narrow profiles – courtesy of 3-inch stiles and rails – provide a contemporary aesthetic along with a larger daylight opening.

Building and designing for increased natural light has been a growing trend this year, not only for its mood-boosting abilities, but also because it can regulate healthy sleep and wake cycles. Designing for Happiness at Home, a survey fielded by The Harris Poll on behalf of Marvin, showed nearly 70% of homeowners agree natural light is a top contributor to their feeling of well-being at home.

The Ultimate Swinging door epitomizes the idea that less door is more, right down to the refined minimalist hardware and fully concealed multi-point locking system. Available in both inswing and outswing configurations, this exceptionally beautiful door also delivers industry-leading performance – having earned a PG50* rating – along with the quality only Marvin can provide.


The customization opportunities are endless with the Ultimate Swinging door, including doors with up to four panels and unequal panel widths for a truly unique design aesthetic and the flexibility to design for a wide variety of openings. With operating panels up to 10 feet tall and 3 ½ feet wide, and widths as narrow as 1 ½ feet, the customization options are truly endless.

And where traditional door panels are the best design choice, the all-new Ultimate Swinging French G2 door provides the same beauty and strength while featuring wider stiles and top rail, along with an 8 1/8” bottom rail for classic French door aesthetics.

Finish the Ultimate Swinging door or Ultimate Swinging French G2 door with the stain or paint of your choice to blend into the surroundings or draw your eye to the beauty it frames.
