There are many different types of door and many places to find them. At Doorsan we focus on internal and external doors for your home, but I have an interest in all types of doors, including cupboards, wardrobes and fridges. Today I'd like to share with you my recent experience of the humble fridge door.
So we all know about the age old question, "does the light switch off when we close the fridge door?” well we may never know, but following a visit to my local electrical store I discovered that the world of fridge doors has moved on quite a lot since I last bought one.

I saw a fridge door with a built in television, for instance! I guess it's a good idea since many of us have breakfast in the kitchen. The same door also had a radio for those who still find TV at breakfast time a bit of an intrusion. Perhaps front doors will have built-in electronics in future, although I can't think why anyone would want a built-in TV in their front door.
One of the fridge doors that I saw had a clever little door built into the main door that allows you to only open the milk compartment. Most of my visits to the fridge are for milk so why let all the cold out each time when a "milk door" is all we really need. An impressive piece of ingenuity, I thought!
I saw another with built-in ice-cube maker and ice-cold water dispenser. What a great addition to a fridge especially in the recent weather we've been having. What I really liked about this one was that the door is plumbed into the mains water supply so the ice and cold water is quite literally on tap!
To think that I thought fridge doors were only good for collecting magnets from all those holidays abroad!
I think all of us at Kershaws Doors need to get our thinking caps on to see what we can do with the humble front door! Let us know if you have any ideas.
