In the world of building and home renovations, many trends have come and gone. In recent times, there has been a ‘boom’ in the number of kitchen and bathroom restorations happening across the country, inspiration and ideas coming from far and wide.

One thing that has never changed is the importance of first impressions. For many, the entrance door to your home is exactly that, so having a good one is an important decision worth spending time on.

What is there to consider when choosing the entrance to your home? Design and materials are as important as each other, reflecting the home owners and their lifestyle. There are also practical aspects to consider when making a choice about what materials to use, whether that be aluminium, glass or timber.

Timber is the most natural choice, bringing warmth and elegance to any home. However, choosing the best quality is key, as it is a changeable element. Solid timber doors are not only beautiful but are also strong and weather resistant.

Aluminium doors can be powder-coated or anodised - the benefit of this being that they don’t need painting/treating and won’t rust. Often aluminium doors come with a significant warranty due to their durability.

Glass doors provide home owners with the opportunity to make a bold statement in their entrance way. They can be custom colour matched which allows you to go for whatever colour combination you are after.
