How to choose a new front door

A new front door can do wonders for the kerb appeal of your property. Whether you’re looking to brighten up your threshold with bold colours, let more natural light into your hallway or wanting something more secure, you’re bound to find the right one at Trade Windows.

We’ve got the biggest range of residential doors in Derby on display at our London Road showroom.

The right door for your home

Our PVCu doors offer great thermal efficiency and top level security. Choosing PVCu looks great next to traditional brickwork and your doors and windows can match.

Composite doors are the champions of the threshold. With a 48mm solid core, our composite doors have fantastic thermal efficiency and sound-proofing which helps if your house is on a busy road. You can choose from plenty of different designs to suit your property.

Door Styles

For easier access for pushchairs, wheelchairs and anyone who is unsteady on their feet, we have low threshold options for our doors.

If you have a dark hallway, designs with large glass features will let more light into your home. Crystal-bevelled glass will capture and reflect sunlight for extra sparkle.

We’ve fitted some stunning doors against all kinds of render, brick and stone work.  Our range spans from contemporary door designs through to cottage-style doors, so there’s bound to be something that’s perfect for making the best first impression of your property. You can check out the different design, colour and hardware options at Trade Street where we have a huge selection on display.

Coloured doors

Our entrance door designs are available in a range of colours.

Go bold with post-box red or peacock blue for a real statement. Stick to bottle green or classic black for period properties. Choose duck egg blue or chartwell green for country cottages.

There’s the added option of dual colour doors and frames, so you can have a bright colour for the exterior and something more neutral to match your interiors on the other.

Door Hardware

If you’ve chosen contemporary grey for your door, a bar handle will complete a modern, chic look.

For a more traditional finish, try a brass-coloured letterplate, knocker and numerals.

Satin-chrome hardware is a great all-rounder for new doors and looks great against brighter colours.
