So you’re looking for a way to spruce up your house. And what’s the centrepiece, the most eye-catching part of the outside of your house? We’re willing to bet it’s the front door. Sadly, many people don’t care about their front doors and don’t bother to give them the attention and maintenance they need. In this blog post, we’re going to look at five of our favourite beautiful and trendy door types you should consider if you’re looking to outcompete your neighbours – or if you’re just looking for inspiration.
Solid Wood Door
An absolute classic. The solid wood door is humble but aesthetically appealing, and will provide your house with almost guaranteed security. An added bonus is that wooden doors are fantastic at holding in heat, as wood is an outstanding insulator – so, if your house needs a little extra warmth during those chilly months, a wooden door might be a good choice for you. It looks fresh and natural, and can be crafted from a variety of types of wood. The downsides of a solid wooden door is that it requires quite a bit of maintenance and upkeep.
Another basic but brilliant choice, the simple steel door is ultra-secure and very strong, protecting your house effectively. Steel doors don’t require so much maintenance as wooden doors as they are damaged less easily, and they’ll be even more insulating as they usually come with an inner insulating layer to keep the warmth inside. However, the disadvantage is that you don’t get that lovely wooden door feel.
If you want your house to have a brighter aesthetic, or if glass matches the colour scheme of your house’s outside, then a glass door is probably a good choice for you! Glass doors let in a fantastic amount of light, keeping your hallway lit up and welcoming to visitors. With a glass door you can customize it in a huge variety of ways, from changing the colour to the tone to the frames, and much more. You can find out more about glass doors here.
Glass Panelled Doors
Want a little bit more privacy than a completely glass front door, but still want to let the sun’s rays into your house? If that sounds like you, maybe a glass panelled door is right for your house. Glass paneled doors have the advantage of better privacy while letting light and warmth in, but insulate the house at night. They have decent security and a nice midpoint in the amount of maintenance and care you’ll have to put in to keep your door in good fashion and looking amazing.
Ah, the spacey feel! If you want to show off the size of your house and welcome lots of visitors into your home, then a double door is likely the best pick for you. Double doors are an umbrella term for a wide range of doors, from wide to steel to glass. Of course, they’re a bit more on the pricey side, but you’ll get fantastic insulation, good lighting if you go for glass, and overall just an outstanding feel to your door. Depending on what you choose, the maintenance for your new London front door might be little or lots. Double doors are usually designed to be not so demanding, but most people like caring for their doors so they stay looking amazing. Your neighbours will be jealous!
