Doors might not seem like an essential design element, but underestimating their role could have a significant impact on your lifestyle. If you’re renovating or building your dream home, here are three reasons why selecting the right door can benefit your home and your family.
They look great
It might seem obvious, but doors should match your home’s architectural look and style. There’s no point installing a rustic timber door in a contemporary home – it’s going to look out of place. You would be better going with a large pivot door, which makes a bold statement with its wide point of entry.
They open up design opportunities
There has been a recent architectural trend towards sliding doors and cavity sliding doors. What makes them so popular is they are extremely versatile – not only can they maximise views, they are easy to screen. Cavity sliding doors have the added benefit of being hidden out of sight in a wall cavity and there is also an option for a recessed sill, which allows for a smooth transition to outside areas.
They make your home more comfortable
The right choice of door can influence the overall efficiency of your home, especially in Australia, where we can experience extremes in temperature. Thermally broken hinged doors allow us to look out to into the world, while controlling the internal temperature of our homes. Combined with lever compression locking, ensures air tightness, thermally broken hinged doors boost your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.
There is much more to doors than first meets the eye – they can have a huge impact on your lifestyle and for this reason, should be chosen with care. If you make the right decision, it can be a real sliding doors moment for you and your family.
