If you’re looking for entrance door inspiration for your home, have a read of this blog for our top front door ideas in Derby, taking into consideration the latest trends and classic choices.
One of the best ways to add major style to your home is to inject some colour.
Colour is one of the latest trends in home improvement, thanks to modern manufacturing allowing us to offer you more choice than ever before.
As well as the classic black, white and red and natural woodgrain colours, there’s a whole spectrum to choose from.
You can choose bold, bright colours such as shades of turquoise, plum or rust orange to add a real pop and make a statement.
Get ahead of the trend by choosing the home improvement colour of the moment, Anthracite Grey. Anthracite Grey front doors add chic contemporary style.
Pastels are being featured more and more in homes, adding a sense of calm and serenity to homes. Try shades such as pastel blues, Chartwell Green, creams and light grey to set the scene for your very own retreat.
The most popular front doors in Derby are composite doors.
Composite doors are made from a variety of materials, including PVCu, wood, insulating foam and glass reinforce plastic (GRP).
Because of this combination, composite doors can offer an authentic timber appearance with a woodgrain finish.
This makes composite doors a great choice if you’re looking for an entrance door that has the best of both worlds, combining both modern and traditional style.
The beauty of composite doors is that they are available in so many door styles, colours, bespoke glass designs and hardware options so you can design your dream door to exactly how you want it.
Aluminium front doors
Aluminium is one of the biggest home improvement trends right now.
From windows to widespan doors to front doors, it’s everywhere.
The appeal of aluminium is that it adds an ultra-modern style.
Sleek aluminium entrance doors give properties a clean, commanding entrance that adds an exclusive sense of luxury and creates a state-of-the-art feature that stands out from the rest.
They can be made bigger too, so you can create a grand entrance to your home with a striking opening.
Cottage style doors
If you’re looking for a new front door in Derby, don’t just think modern!
There’s a reason why traditional door styles are still around – they’re classic and will always look beautiful.
Whether you live in an older property and want to retain the charm and character, or you live in a newer build and want to mix styles and add a period touch, cottage style doors are the perfect choice.
Cottage style doors are composite doors that have been made to look like the doors that are used on cottages in rural Britain and are favoured for the time-enduring, cosy and homely feel.
Frame-less, glazed doors
One of the most used phrases in home improvements right now is ‘more glass, less frame’.
More and more people want their home to be filled with glass and to not have chunky frames spoiling the style. That’s why creating walls of glass using widespan glazed doors and slimline windows has been really popular.
Complete the look with a fully glazed door – a sure-fire way to add wow-factor to your property.
Lumi doors are one of the latest entrance doors to come onto the market and impress homeowners, as they are completely frame-less, featuring flat, uninterrupted glazing.
This leaves you with a truly stunning entrance to your home that looks just as elegant and sophisticated as it does sleek and clean.
