If your budget is limited, a door manufactured in pine, hemlock or a more obscure hardwood such as sapele or idigbo could fit the bill. You can also save money by purchasing an unfinished door to stain or paint at home. At the other end of the scale, an oak door may cost more initially but will look great and last many years. Don’t forget to allow for door furniture in your budget, particularly a good lock – make sure you get one specified as anti-drill, anti-bump and anti-pick.
As a general practice doors are mainly installed at the entrance of any place to stop the unwanted entrance of intruders and protect your valuables from being stolen by them. Therefore, when it comes to installation of doors every person tries to get heavy and big doors installed at his entrance which along with offering complete security to his home also helps in making it aesthetically appealing from exteriors. But, apart from entrance gate there are various places inside the home where it is imperative to install doors to retain privacy of every family member.
The black door is a perfect example of the classic home. This exterior beauty was always around and has never left the option list for most home owners. Even though many people consider black as an odd colour to have on the face of your walls, the door will actually complement the colours of the bricks or paint job and make the green of the garden stand out. It also has the appearance that makes one feel closer to nature because of the rich colour of the wood.
Your back door doesn’t have to look exactly the same as the front one, but for the sake of visual harmony it’s still best to pick a design that goes with the period and style of your property – so I would advise against installing, say, a gleaming aluminium and glass door in a Georgian town house.
If wanted to, you could add curtains in front of the glass sliding doors as they work similarly to a window. Curtain rails are generally placed at a standard distance away from the wall so you won’t have to worry about them getting caught in the track. You can have sliding doors altered and customised to fit the style you prefer. For interior rooms it’s best to get solid or frosted glass finishes. For the one leading to the backyard, a transparent or normal frosted glass window should suffice and it will allow the light to enter your house.
It is advisable to look out for new businesses while buying external wooden doors and windows. In the past few years, a number of new businesses have started operating in the field. This can be attributed to the easy finance options available. However, while selecting a manufacturer, it is advisable to select a one who has a minimum experience of 5 years. It is also important to check the guarantees and warranties offered by the company. Small businesses generally have a lower life expectancy as compared to bigger ones. In such a scenario, they may fail to offer guarantees and warranties on their products. It is hence advisable to choose businesses that are well established in the field. The manufacturers that offer warranties ranging between 10 to 20 years may be preferred.
Folding doors can be used in any room of the house provided the correct privacy screen is present. This particular option folds neatly to one side of the room giving you a large amount of space. They are also customisable features where the frame, panels or colour can be changed.
