Choosing the Right Door

Choosing a door for your home is an important decision, and it has a more considerable impact on aesthetics than people realise. By picking the right door for your home, you can enhance the beauty and value of your whole property. A door can be a status symbol.

When purchasing a new door for your home, there are a few things to consider before making the purchase. Take time to weigh up all the points listed in this blog, and you will pick the right door for your home that shall last you a lifetime.

What Material

While there are various other material sources such as uPVC and Composite, these options often lack in aesthetics and performance. For this reasons we’ve focused on two popular premium door material options.

Traditional Wood- Wooden doors are a very popular choice for aesthetic reasons. They are available in various looks thanks to a wide variety of woods and can take just about any paint or stain colour.

Contemporary Aluminium Clad Wood – Contemporary doors were introduced about 13 years ago. This product is aimed towards homeowners wanting to maintain the appearance of a timber door whilst benefiting from the development of modern materials, which work harder to keep out the draughts and require less maintenance.

What style

When choosing the right premium front door for your home, keep in mind not only the look of your house’s facade but also how old the property is. Try and pick something that will complement that particular area. In addition to the aesthetics of the front of the home, other elements should be considered.

For instance, if you live near public transport or a busy street, you might want to install a solid door, this can help with soundproofing the inside of your home. On the other hand, if the entrance to your home is dark or north-facing, it can be seen as unwelcoming. To combat this, you could install a door that includes glass elements to help lighten the area inside.


If security is your main concern purchasing a door that features a solid core, this makes them more challenging to kick or break down. If you wish to find out if your current door is solid, you can find out by knocking on it; a hollow door will echo, while a solid door will sound dead. You can improve the security of your home by replacing the hallowed door with a door that has a solid core.


After you’ve weighed the pros and cons, it is now time to set the budget. Door prices can fluctuate from being very expensive, such as a highly customised aluclad door to being incredibly affordable, like a simple wooden door. A customised door can be more expensive when you first purchase, but it will increase the value of your home. If you invest in a quality door that is built to last, it will require less replacement work and maintenance. It could work out cheaper in the long run rather than buying a cheaper door and then having to fix or replace it.
