Custom built doors and windows from Fremantle Door and Window have helped a lot of Perth homeowners turn their drab homes into their dream homes. We love the stunned looks on the faces of our customers when they see how great their homes look and what a difference the right doors and windows can make.
So, how do custom built doors and windows help people create their dream homes? Here are some subtle factors that come into play when you update your home with custom built doors and windows.
Do you live in a subdivision where all of the homes were built by the same builder? We can almost guarantee you that they used less expensive doors, windows and hardware to cut costs. The homes all look great when they are new, but as you live in them for awhile, you notice little things starting to go wrong. Spaces appear between windows and sills or below your door. Door or window handles may start to lose their lustre and can even rust.
Think about this. The features that make your home look old or new, dated or modern, expensive or cheap are the fixtures, not the walls. That includes your doors, windows and sills. It also includes chandeliers, light switches and other fixtures, but the majority of features that decide how your home looks are on your doors and windows.
Custom External Doors and Windows
When you install custom external doors and windows, it makes a huge difference in how your home looks. Conventional doors can be turned into bifold doors along the length of an entire wall. Your kitchen windows can be replaced by servery windows, Your drab, laminated, hollow entry door can be replaced by solid, exterior-grade timber that reeks of timeless prosperity.
When you have modernised the external doors and windows in your home, it is a simple matter to keep the walls maintained and painted attractively. Meanwhile, your home looks new and is definitely a cut above the standard cookie cutter home. But your job is only half done if you really want to wow your guests.
Custom Internal Doors
After you have modernised the exterior of your home, the interior magic can begin. Studies have shown that homes with more light look larger and provide a happier environment. This is why we recommend that, whenever possible, you remove a few interior walls and use bifold doors to create an open floor plan for the common areas of your home. Everything except bedrooms and bathrooms seems to work better with an open floor plan.
Better yet, not only does your home look bigger, you actually make better use of your space. You get extra space where the walls used to be. If you like, you can use bifold doors to create separate rooms when closed and an open floor plan when open. This is the most versatile design you can possibly use for your home. And when you open the bifold doors, the panels sit folded next to each other off to the side, using almost no space at all.
Bifold doors are doors that are made with solid timber frames and special weatherproof grade glass that we have specially made just for us in WA. They are called “bifold doors” because they consist of panels that fold against each other and sit parallel to each other on the side when opened. While the original bifold doors had four panels, hence the name “bifold,” bifold doors can be as small as two panels or can consist of panels across an entire wall or an entire room.
