Your home is where your heart is and your front door welcomes visitors into your lifestyle. It is a portal to your personality and it says so much about your appreciation of design aesthetics. An attractive front door also increases the value of your home with curb appeal.
The front door invites visitors and guests and tells them that they are welcome to your home. Your door may be wood or a combination of wood, glass and wrought iron. There are many possibilities for custom door designs to complement the architecture of your home.
You may have double doors at your entry. This may suggest that you entertain frequently and welcome many guests.
The design of your front door indicates your appreciation for the aesthetics of your home’s architecture.
If you currently live in or are building a modern, open plan house, you will likely design a door that matches the architectural features of the property.
A rendered house may combine perfectly with a painted timber door with clean lines and perhaps simple, opaque glass panels or door surrounds.
When renovating a heritage property you may opt for a heritage style door that reflects the period your home was built complimenting the architectural features of the past such as stained glass inserts.
Mediterranean or French provincial styled homes may include wrought iron features that lift your entrance portico above the average…
Similarly, the clean lines of a custom designed, stained timber door will highlight your personal style and appreciation of modern and timeless home design.
An old brick and stone building that suggests a Gothic design may need a custom peaked archway door in a dark brown tone to stay true to the design of the home. A natural dark wood door with an arched top also suggests a historical building.
Doors can be painted but warm, natural wood colours show your appreciation for the natural beauty of sustainable forest timber. Woods come in many colour variations from light grey and beige to dark red and brown.
Timber doors can be stained or varnished rather than painted to bring out the texture and grain of the product. The colours can be carried through on window frames, porches and patio decks from the same timbers.
Respect for craftsmanship
A custom timber entrance door shows your appreciation for the work that goes into its design and fabrication. You may have stained-glass, a carved design on the door or bevelled panels. Glass panels and doors suggest that you are always looking outward and that you prefer the extra light.
A door that includes clear or textured glass requires the talents of several craftsmen to produce the final product.
At Fremantle Doors and Windows all of our doors and windows feature timber, stained glass or wrought iron features manufactured right here in Western Australia.
Visitors to your front door will also appreciate the craftsmanship involved in the door’s construction and your design smarts. It is always nice to receive compliments on your choice of doors.
Accessories Showcase Your Interests
The door hardware that opens, closes and secures your doors is also an important component of your portico’s style and design.
At Fremantle Door our craftsmen and designers can help you find the right door hardware to enhance the design of the door and the aesthetics of your property.
