We often supply doors to Hotels, Inns and pubs of various styles, which is really exciting to us at Doorsan Ltd. The wide-ranging door styles chosen indicates the variation of architectural styles we have in this country.
I recently became aware of a well-known hostelry in North Devon with a fascinating history. The Pack of Cards is a grade 11 listed building dating from the 18th century on the edge of Exmoor providing en-suite accommodation. The building is fascinating as it was inspired by a pack of cards. The plot the Inn stands on is 52ft by 52ft (the number of cards in a pack, the 4 floors represent the 4 suits in the pack, the 13 doors on each floor and 13 fireplaces represent the number of cards in a suit and in the past the number of panes in all the windows added up to the total of the numbered cards in a pack. I find this concept intriguing and inspirational that someone could design their property with such a novel and eccentric theme yet I’m sure it functions well as a building. Nowadays, property design can often be too constricted its great to see a little fun injected into architecture.
This is only one example of an interesting Hotel there are lots more in the UK and beyond; I think it will be a good theme to use when visiting the UK.
In the meantime, if you need inspiration for door styles for your own property look no further than Doorsan, we have a tremendous range of exciting high quality timber doors for interiors and exteriors.
