At Doorsan Ltd we pride ourselves in keeping up with the latest design trends while still maintaining a clear focus on the popular and traditional door designs. We realise that taste is a very personal thing and that property styles vary considerably.
We often have the opportunity to have some input regarding the design and naming of the door styles we choose, particularly our custom door suppliers. In the main we tend to retain the names already chosen by our suppliers unless we have a duplicate name for another product. We are constantly refreshing and adding to our extensive website with the latest additions presented to us by our main suppliers.
Recently, we have added a large selection of new timber door designs in both our internal and external door ranges. While looking at these new door styles I was, as usual, intrigued by the choice of names our suppliers select for their doors.
In the main, and customarily, timber doors are given place names from both the UK and around the world. I suppose this is because there are a wealth of available names and often a place name conjures up an image of design style. For instance the more traditional external doors often have UK place name to evoke an image of tradition and taste such as our new Kensington Hardwood door which is suitable to have either a stunning paint finish or a timber stain and will suit many traditional terraced properties. Alternatively, the new Goodwood Oak external door uses Oak with a modern, asymmetric glazed style which is grooved to create an eight panel design.
Some of the new Internal doors are given names which conjure up thoughts of far away places such as the Pre-finished Vancouver solid or glazed door which is an existing style of ours and now available in other options such as Walnut, Oak and White. Quote from Wikipedia “Vancouver is consistently named as one of the top five worldwide cities for livability and quality of life”. Consequently a good name to choose to accentuate a quality lifestyle choice.
Whether you are influenced by the names or titles chosen for the product you are purchasing, or not, a name is generally better than a number and so much easier to remember. At Doorsan Ltd we certainly find that customers find the names of our doors both interesting and helpful.
