Your choice of front door will be strongly dictated by the architectural style of your home. This may depend on location and when it was built amongst other things. Some of the most common home styles are listed below along with some recommended door designs from the Doorsan collection that will bring out the best in your particular style of home.
Victorian Style Homes
During the Victorian era(1837 to 1901) people viewed their homes as a reflection of themselves and took a lot of pride in how they looked. Common features include high ceilings, spacious rooms and lots of detailing including coving and ceiling roses. Victorian homes typically have sash windows and may include small panes of glass featuring decorative detailing. Traditional door styles for Victorian homes feature four panels and were painted in dark colours including deep reds and dark greens. Doorsan have a 4 Panel Hardwood door that reflects the Victorian style perfectly.
Gothic Style Homes
Gothic architecture originated during the medieval period, and was revived in the late 19th century. Most of today's gothic style homes are inspired by the architecture of churches and cathedrals. These properties typically feature curved arches and pointed windows along with stained glass windows. The Doorsan collection includes a Gothic hardwood external door with tri-glazed safety glass with traditional leaded detailing which would be the perfect complement to a gothic style home. Pointed glazed panels finishes off the look.
Cottage Style Homes
Cottage style homes offer a charming and cosy appearance. Cottages frequently feature small windows and unusual sized doors. If you require a door with unusual dimensions then have a look at the custom sized doors at Doorsan or give us a call to ask what we can supply. The Bordeaux Oak Door with a double glazed panel from Doorsan is a pretty example of a cottage style door which would enhance the first impression of any cottage style property.
