Custom external doors are being used by more and more Perth homeowners to make statements about their homes. Custom external doors and windows are the most cost-effective ways to modernise your home and increase its value.
There are basically two ways to customise your home with custom external doors. One is via the entry or front door. The other is by a side or rear door, which can lead to an alfresco living area.
Custom Built Entry Doors
If your home was built off of a builder plan, your front door is probably either an aluminium door or a hollow door consisting of timber laminates glued to a frame. They end up being painted and look ordinary. They are functional, but they don’t really do much for your home design.
At Fremantle Door & Window Company, we create custom built entry doors out of solid timber from sustainable sources and weatherproof glass from a local WA source. A solid timber front door tells your neighbours and anyone who walks through that door that you are prosperous. Solid timber doors also provide an aesthetic of tradition. The solid timber door should go into a solid timber jamb.
A more modern version of the solid timber door is to turn it into a pivot door and put timber-framed glass on each side of the door. A pivot door opens on pivots mounted on the floor and top of the door instead of on hinges. This says that you are modern and not afraid to try new, unique designs.
Sliding Doors and Bifold Doors for Your Patio
Bifold doors and sliding doors to your patio, deck or alfresco living area tell your guests that you love the outdoors. The solid timber frames and the wide openings help integrate your home with its natural surroundings. Sliding doors are great, but bifold doors can open the entire width of the doorway, turning your alfresco living area into living space. This adds living space to your home without building an addition.
