Insulation is another added advantage of the uPVC material over wood. uPVC was made to be a very proficient insulator and offers the best energy, heat and sound insulation obtainable. It is the best insulator in relation to the alternative of timber and this capability to retain sounds in and heat in makes it popular. uPVC is an eco-friendly material that needs less resource than wood options. uPVC profiles has a life time of 40 – 80 years. It can be reprocessed into commercial fittings, plumbing pipes, roadside guideposts, floor tiles and other uses. Wood cannot be recycled and it is a threat to our environment since it has to be cut down every time it is required for use.
On the other hand, doors are heavy, difficult to manoeuvre and take up a lot of space. The trestles might leave contact marks behind; and you will have to wait several hours for the first side to dry before you can paint the second one. In practice, most home owners prefer to decorate the door in the frame. Wait for a warm day (at least 10°C) with no wind, to avoid dust being blown on to the wet paint. Don’t work in strong sunlight as the paint may blister. Wedge the door open before you start, and place some cardboard underneath to catch drips.
Use good quality brushes with natural bristles. A cheap brush is a waste of time – the paint won’t flow from it properly and it is likely to keep shedding hairs while you work. A 100mm (4”) brush is a good size for large surfaces, as it offers good coverage but won’t get too heavy when filled with paint. You will find a 25mm (1”) brush handy for cutting in (painting into the corners) and tackling intricate areas such as beading and cut-outs.
In smaller homes, people might experience that their doors are taking up too much space when opened. There is, of course, a solution for this problem. Pocket doors will help you with the tight space situation. The door has the sliding mechanism but fits into the wall thus saving a large amount of space. The whole concept is also modern and practical without any electronic application.
Now, I’m quite conscious about how my house looks, especially when we’ve spent so much time and money making it look idyllic. So you can imagine my reaction when my generic web search for bolts, came back with these huge fixings that just looked like complete eyesores! I knew the safety of my kids was more important, however I was certain I could find something that would suit the style of the kitchen and bathroom, as well as protecting my kids at the same time. In keeping with the style of both the kitchen and the bathroom, I decided I wanted brushed chrome bathroom bolts to suit its minimalistic bravura, and to match the country cottage look I opted for bronze looking door bolts in the kitchen.
Folding doors can be custom made to suit your style. Whether you prefer the frosted glass or just the solid wood option, these doors are a great idea for anyone. The best place to have them installed is on the inside of your home in a passage or at the kitchen entrance. They add decoration and practicality to your everyday living. These doors also work perfectly for the private areas of your house such as the bedroom and bathroom.
This follows seamlessly onto material selection. Whether you are looking for a wooden, composite or other material, it is likely that there is a design alternative to match your required material. It is important to remember that the doorway is a visitor’s first and last impression so remember that it is an outward show of your creativity and style.
