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.
The way the door has been constructed plays a part as well. Less expensive dowel doors are made from kiln-dried wood that has been assembled using fluted dowels (small wooden pegs) and adhesive. Premium M&T (mortice and tenon) doors are manufactured from specially selected kiln-dried timber and put together using traditional mortice and tenon joints and adhesive for superior weather-proofing properties.
uPVC (Unplasticised Polyvinylchloride) is a very tough material that is used widely in the construction industry globally. In latest years, the usage of uPVC has grown immensely in popularity and is currently one of the most widely chosen materials. More people are searching for energy efficient and viable alternatives to wood and uPVC is the impeccable material. uPVC door and window frames are available in different colours which include silver, black and white as well as a timber grain profile. Colours can be modified to a person’s choice.
Size matters, so measure the opening very carefully before ordering to avoid a costly mistake. Standard off-the-shelf wooden doors, the most economical option, are available in a range of widths (usually between 30 and 36 inches), and most of them can be trimmed to fit – but check first, as this is not always the case.
One interesting quality about having a sidelight frame is that it can be symmetrical or asymmetrical, depending on what you prefer. Both styles give their own characteristics to a wall and accentuate the room with a little extra decoration. Sometimes a person wants to have a large door but doesn’t necessarily want to use the entire space for the door. This often happens with sliding doors that have transparent glass panels which lead to a common room. The sidelight allows the homeowner to have the maximum amount of light without occupying all the wall space with sliding doors.
These resemble tiny anchors, and are mostly admired for their affordability and reliable performance. They are best for lightweight doors since they will not necessarily stop a door from opening, but rather, prevent holes in walls. They are also aesthetically pleasing since they are small and more hidden.
Don’t make the mistake of choosing design over functionality. Selecting a durable yet lightweight material for the kitchen doors is an absolute necessity. These doors are considered to be the most used thing in your kitchen. Therefore, settle down for a design that will make your accessibility to the cabinets easier than ever.
