Composite doors are more expensive than most timber doors initially but have the advantage of requiring no finishing or maintenance, saving time and money in the long run. You will also need to factor in the cost of door furniture. This can vary hugely, from around £10 for a pair of simple chrome-effect zinc handles to more than £100 for a superior set made of brass or polished nickel. You may find that a handle kit, comprising handles, hinges, fixing screws and a latch, is the most convenient solution.
If different shapes to choose from is not enough to show your true taste, you also have a choice of materials for your door handles – designer handles are available in stainless steel and bronze! If you want something more rustic and subtle, you might opt for bronze pull handles on your doors. If, on the other hand, you would rather have your home really stand out from the crowd, you might prefer stainless steel door handles that shine brightly and glisten in the sun. Again, it is all up to you!
If a home were a book, an electric garage door would be a quiet and insignificant character – barely noticed day to day as it obediently responds to demands. This might be the case in most homes, but not one in which both a teenager and a senior citizen are learning to drive at the same time. In this case, an electric garage door can become an object to outfox for the youngster and a source of trepidation for the ”oldster” – and an object for both to misjudge and miscalculate.
The beauty of steel is that you can use it in whichever way you want. In recent years, doors were made with a steel frame but designers have become creative to mould the metal into shapes that curve. The shapes look gorgeous when placed against glass and work well with grey doors. Historically, people of nobility would show off their status by using custom metal designs.
Keeping that in mind you realise how much more space you really have. The glass doors also give a modern vibe to the setting of the room and house. Most modern elements revolve around space and minimalism. Glass doors are also a great way of adding natural light into a room without adding more windows. The light reflects through the glass and illuminates the surrounding walls. It’s the same as having windows except the window is in the door.
Off-the-shelf doors can be found in a variety of standard popular sizes. These are generally classified by width, and range from 30” to 36”. If your frame doesn’t conform to a standard size you may be able to trim the door to fit; many wooden doors can be reduced by up to 12mm along each edge. In some cases you might be better off buying a complete door set, which consists of a frame and matching door. This can be a particularly good move if you have an older property, where the original frame may have warped or even cracked over time. Alternatively, you may decide to pay a bit more and have the door made to measure.
Instead of ordering double glazed bifold doors and then adding blinds as an afterthought it is wiser to order such doors with integral blinds for a neater, smarter and ergonomic solution that looks neat as well. Manufacturers of quality bifold doors incorporate the blind into the glazing, fitting it neatly inside the frame so that it does not become an obstruction when one opens the door or gets in the way or gets tangled up and damaged in the process. The blinds are cut and precisely fitted inside the sectional frame to conform to the size of the glass glazing and the mechanism is neat and integrates well with the overall structure. Such integral blinds work smoothly and never get in the way of closing or opening the bifold doors.
