Understanding Door Materials
When customising a door, it’s crucial to understand the characteristics of different materials. Wooden doors offer a timeless look, while metal doors provide durability and security. Glass doors introduce a contemporary feel, allowing natural light to flow into the space. Each material caters to unique aesthetic and functional needs.
uPVC Doors: An affordable Choice
When choosing a door, consider uPVC as an affordable, durable, and low-maintenance option. It provides weather resistance, insulation properties, and customisation in various styles and colours. Enhance security and aesthetics by adding glass panels or security locks. UPVC doors offer excellent value for your home.
Aluminium Doors: A Modern Twist
When it comes to modernising your home, aluminium doors offer a sleek and contemporary look that perfectly complements modern design. Their lightweight and durable nature make them resistant to various weather conditions, requiring minimal maintenance. Additionally, the energy efficiency they provide ensures a comfortable living environment while maximising natural light entry.
Composite Doors : The Perfect Fusion
For those seeking the best of both worlds, composite doors are the ultimate choice. Combining the benefits of various materials, these doors offer exceptional strength, security, and energy efficiency. With a wide range of styles to choose from, you can find the perfect composite door that complements your home’s aesthetic.
3 Modern Front Door Colours for Your Dream Home
Enhance your dream home with Classic Blue, making a bold statement. Welcome guests with the natural touch of Olive Green. Warm Taupe adds subtle elegance to your modern front door, reflecting personal style and enhancing your home’s exterior. Choose a custom door colour that complements your property and adds a touch of sophistication.
– Reviving Green – A Natural Touch
Considering the sustainability revolution taking place, it’s hardly surprising that green front doors remain a firm favourite. Natural and inspiring, muted green hues (like Pale Green and Reed Green) add a timeless depth to traditionally styled properties, whilst deep earthy greens (like Moss Green and Grass Green) invigorate more modern exteriors.
– Soothing Blue – A Modern Statement
In-keeping with the organic, natural vibe, both Dulux and Pantone have chosen diverse shades of blue as their Colour of the Year. A shade associated with comfort, hope and strength, Dulux’ Bright Skies is an airy and uplifting shade that we think would look absolutely stunning alongside contemporary chrome door furniture (the closest RAL colours being Pastel Blue, Pigeon Blue, and Light Blue). If you’re looking for a livelier shade of blue, Pantone has opted for ‘Very Peri’; a violet-infused blue that oozes warmth and creativity. Described as a ‘periwinkle shade of blue’, if you like Veri Peri, you’re sure to love the door colour’s Signal Violet, Blue Lilac, and Red Lilac from the RAL colour matching system.
Combining the perfect fusion of blue and green, Turquoise Blue (AKA Teal) also provides a particularly striking finish on modern aluminium entrance doors.
– Cool Grey – A Subtle Elegance
Balancing tones of grey remain popular for modernising a wide range of property exteriors. Cool, neutral, and sophisticated, pale tones (like Agate Grey and Pebble Grey) add warmth. Darker shades of grey (like Anthracite Grey and Slate Grey) add depth and accentuate modern entrances without detracting from their original features.
Options for Door Customisation
Options for Door Customisation: Tailoring doors to fit your space perfectly enhances the aesthetics of your home. Whether for internal or external use, bespoke doors can be customised to your exact specifications, from style to size. Custom doors not only reflect your unique taste but also offer the ideal solution for your home’s exterior, including external doors.
Choosing the Right Door Style
When selecting a new door, it’s essential to consider how it complements the style of your home. Accurate measurements of the door opening are crucial for a perfect fit, whether it is a standard door or a customised size. The colour, material, and design are important aspects to consider for a custom door, enhancing the curb appeal and adding an elegant touch to your property.
Selecting Appropriate Hardware
When customising a door, ensure the hinges align with your preferences and consider the door’s thickness, width, and molding. Choose the right door hardware for a seamless finish that fits your interior doors. Be sure to select the ideal fire door with the appropriate specification to meet safety requirements.
