At Fremantle Door & Window Company, we provide high quality custom built doors for homeowners in the Perth area. We provide a variety of doors for all purposes, including sliding doors, bifold doors, pivot doors and pool house doors. When designed well, custom built doors can modernise a home for a lot less money than you might think.
However, the front door may be the most underrated feature of a home. Your front entryway is the first thing people are going to see up close when they enter your home. If you have the same, plain wooden door that came with your home, it probably doesn’t really say anything about your home other than “average.”
What does your current front door say about your home? Is it just a plain door that is in need of paint? Is it still snug against the frame or does it let air in and out of your home? Is it a modern colour or is it a generic one that nobody notices?
If any of your answers aren’t satisfactory to you, it’s time to think about a custom built door. Here are some of your options.
Traditional Solid Timber Front Door
Our traditional solid timber doors are built a lot better than the one that came with your home. All of our custom built doors are made of solid exterior grade timber. We always recommend a natural coating or a stain to let the natural appearance of the grain show through. They look and feel far better than your original generic front door, while lending a timeless quality to your home.
A heavy, natural grain solid timber front door says one word to your guests as they open it and walk through: prosperity.
Double Solid Timber Doors
Everything we said about having one timber door is enhanced by a double door design. Double doors can be a forceful, almost intimidating presence. Maybe the best feature of double doors is that they are majestic if done right. They tell anyone entering that your home is, indeed, your castle.
The Allure of Pivot Doors
A pivot door is probably going to be the opposite of a solid timber door. It is called a pivot door because it is mounted on a pivot. It is a very modern design and can be built of solid glass, solid timber or any combination you like. Pivot doors have a unique look and tell your guests that you aren’t afraid to let your individuality shine.
If you like the idea of a glass door, a pivot door is a great choice. It is a point of pride for us that we source our glass at our own facility right here in WA. It is a strong, durable type of glass custom made for us. It will provide years of service for you.
Bifold Doors: Not Just for the Alfresco Area
Bifold doors are most often used to maximise area and access to a patio, deck or alfresco living area. They are also used internally as part of an open floor plan to better utilise the space inside your home while providing the illusion of even more space due to the light it allows to shine through your home.
However, they make a great front door, too. They provide a welcoming presence, telling your neighbours your door is always open. However, you don’t need to worry about security. We can design a bifold door that is very secure.
Bifold doors are recommended for friendly people only. They are also a bold choice for a front door. But when done right, they look great. They can also help integrate surrounding nature into your home.
