As creators of custom built doors and windows for homeowners in the Perth area, we have helped numerous homeowners modernise and update their homes for much less than a full structural remodeling would cost.
Custom built doors can help enhance your home and increase its value by much more than you actually spend on the doors. Here are some of the reasons why so many people are having us provide them with custom build doors and windows.
Most Cost-Effective Way to Modernise and Update Your Home
Installing custom built doors is the most cost-effective way to modernise and update your home. One of the best examples is using bi-fold doors in conjunction with an open floor plan for the common living areas of your home.
As you may know, an open floor plan can turn your kitchen, dining room, family room, living room and office or reading nook into one large common living area. But what if you would like to have privacy or use these as separate rooms on occasion? All you have to do is install bi-fold doors to separate the areas into individual rooms.
When you want to have one common living area, the bi-fold doors sit neatly by the walls, using almost no living space. But when you want to cordon off one or more rooms, all you have to do is close the bi-fold doors. This gives you the ultimate in flexibility.
Open floor plans are seen as the ultimate in modern home design. They actually make your home feel like it is larger than it really is because it uses the space in your home better. An open floor plan also lets in more light and makes your home appear larger than it really is. In addition, when you allow more light into your home, your home is better integrated with nature.
For the door leading to the outside, you may also install a bifold door or a sliding door. If you want to enhance your home even more, we would also recommend installing custom windows, but the open floor design will work wonders at modernising and updating your home.
The Timber Aesthetic
At Fremantle Door and Window, we craft your custom built doors with solid, exterior grade timber frames and weatherproof glass that is manufactured for us right here in Western Australia. You may choose to use a clear finish and allow the beauty of the timber to show through or you may choose to stain your timber frame.
Whichever you choose, the timber always looks better in your home than any other material would. There is a timeless aesthetic to timber that is simply unmatched by any other building material. Timber is a natural material and it helps integrate your home into natural surroundings. Even if you are stuck in the city with no natural surroundings, the timber will remind you of simpler, more relaxing days.
If you choose to build a bifold door leading to a patio or a timber deck, this does even more to adorn your home with a natural timber aesthetic. Bifold doors not only integrate your home into nature aesthetically, they also provide the widest and easiest entry and exit points of any doors.
A sliding door, for example, only uses half of the width of the opening because the fixed pain blocks the other half. A bifold door, on the other hand, can be open to nearly the entire width of the doorway.
Timber: Nature’s Great Insulator
Timber has greater natural insulative properties than any other building material. When you use timber, especially along with our weatherproof glass, it helps keep extreme weather out of your house. Your house stays cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, saving you money on heating and cooling costs.
