When people renovate or redecorate rooms in their house they think about paint, wallpaper, furniture and fabric furnishings, but quite often they neglect to consider the design of the door. Doors are important for many reasons: they are the first impression to a house and room. If a door is scruffy then you may assume that what lies behind it is as well.
If a front door is brightly coloured and framed with flowers, this gives off a welcoming vibe. Feng Shui practitioners believe that a door has to look a certain way in order to channel positive energy. Essentially, your door is an important introduction to your property or room and shouldn’t be overlooked.
Benefits of Bespoke Doors
The beauty of bespoke crafted doors is that you can have a door made to your exact specifications, and the
design possibilities are endless. DIY stores have very limited choice; they normally offer composite wood doors with a veneer and possess restricted designs. Having a door specifically made means you can retain the natural character of your home, and ensure continuity of style.
When it comes to redecorating a room, people think carefully about the colour scheme and spend hours picking out wall paper, soft furnishings and furniture that all complement each other. However, doors are disregarded because they are seen as part of the building, rather than the home contents. If you are renovating a home, the design of the door may no longer suit the look you want to achieve, so having a bespoke door will ensure that even the room’s fixtures will blend in effortlessly.

As well as creating doors in all manner of high quality woods, we can create aesthetic features too.
