The Trade Windows Door Awards

Welcome to the Trade Windows Door Awards 2015.

We’ve picked our winners for the best composite door designs available for different style properties. We’ve also chosen the 2015 Colour of the Year and the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ for the door that never goes out of style.

 Best Choice for period properties: Chartwell


Charltwell green

Chartwell Green burst onto the glazing scene back in the late nineteenth century and is a stunning choice for Victorian, Edwardian or even Georgian properties. The vintage shade has taken the industry by storm over the last few years and this Renown style door, complete with Georgian bar glass design and elegant gold push handle, letter plate and numerals makes for some serious kerb appeal.






Best Style for modern new builds: Esprit C09L


Peacock blue


Leading the way in minimalism, Esprit C09L has captured the hearts of self-builders across the East Midlands. The simple, elegant design is a fantastic match for the smooth, pale renders of new eco-homes. Peacock is a popular colour choice but Mandarin or Deep Cerise with plain glass both ooze effortless style.





Best for brightening dark doorways: Coral Lighthouse
Salsa Red comosite door


For brightening the darkest of doorways, Coral Lighthouse is a winner. The bright shade of the composite door adds a flash of colour to dingy porches whilst the Eclat style with crystal bevelled glass makes the sun shine brighter, allowing natural light to flood dark hallways. The colour in the Coral glass design completes this door, the champion of brightness.






The colour of 2015: Granite




The people’s choice, Granite has made 2015 a year of its own. Picked for properties old and new, on every style with every glass design imaginable, it’s been the runaway colour winner over the past year. This design with zinc Andaman glass and Satin furniture completes the on-trend grey entrance.







Lifetime Achievement Award: The Little Black Door


Little black door



Understated, sophisticated, chic. The Little Black Door wins our lifetime achievement award for its unfaltering popularity through the decades.
