French doors

If you’re looking for doors that would go well with a chic interior design, consider purchasing French timber doors. London, Paris, Rome – anywhere you go, you can spot them, which is how you’ll know this door type is a real hit not only in the UK, but in the entire Europe. In most cases, French doors are light-construction double doors with glazed area that extends from the top to the bottom (or middle part) of each door leaf. The panes are made of either milk or transparent glass, and they can be divided with decorative muntin bars. French doors became widely popular in the Renaissance era, when proportions and symmetry were of crucial importance, and the more light a window or door could let in – the better. To this day, French doors are the height of fashion in many European cities.

The characteristic design of French doors is truly timeless. This door type has, however, even more advantages. Thanks to the sizeable glass panes, French doors let in plenty of natural light. Apart from that, they also:

  • highlight the elegance of the interior,
  • visually enlarge the room,
  • facilitate ventilation,
  • can serve as a practical partition between two spaces – for example, to separate a living or dining room from the kitchen,
  • come in a variety of sizes, colours, and designs, which makes it easier to find the perfect product.

With a French door, any room or building’s facade will automatically seem brighter and more delicate. They can be used as internal or external doors – including patio or front doors.

External doors

External doors, also known as exterior doors, are in many respects the most important doors in a building. It’s what your guests or clients will notice first whenever they arrive at the site – and you won’t get a second chance to make a good first impression. However, it’s not only the visual aspect that matters. External doors are the barrier that separates the interior of your house from the outside world. Whilst it’s not unimportant that they look elegant and match the architectural style of the building, they should primarily carry out other functions, such as protecting you from intruders or keeping the cold and the heat out. To make it easier, opt for solid, energy-efficient wooden doors. London will immediately seem a better place to live.

Keep in mind that the umbrella term ‘external doors’ encompasses not only front doors, but also back, garage, balcony, or patio doors. External doors of all types should be carefully designed and produced – as well as regularly maintained – so that they can last up to several decades. Thanks to the excellent properties of wood, doors produced from this material are more resistant to mechanical damage, deformation, and weathering than plastic doors. Timber garage doors are, therefore, a great choice for those who are searching for a sturdy, secure and durable product. If you want your vehicle to be well protected from adverse weather and potential car thieves, order timber garage doors. London may not be listed amongst Britain’s most dangerous cities, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Front doors

For reasons already mentioned, front doors are one of the most crucial elements of the entire building. To ensure that they fulfil their vital function and protect you from any unwanted visitors, the doors should be fitted with a special anti-burglary system. It might include an anti-pick or anti-drill lock along with concealed hinges – or toughened glass if your front door has a glazed area. Solid wooden doors will give you a sense of security instead of being just a charming facade ornament. At the same time, timber doors are more environment-friendly and energy-efficient than uPVC doors. What’s more, the increased durability of well maintained wooden doors translates into a couple of decades of problem-free usage.

Bespoke timber doors

At Sash Factory, we are deeply passionate about woodwork, which is why our bespoke timber doors are of the highest quality. We can provide you with first-rate, made-to-measure wooden doors, which will be not only beautiful, but also sturdy, energy-efficient, secure and weatherproof. However, are they better than timber composite doors? Composite wood is another good building material, but it is not as eco-friendly as solid wood and has worse acoustic properties. Moreover, timber doors are more versatile thanks to their greater customisability. That’s why you can install them in a traditional single-family house as well as in a modern penthouse. They are also perfect for buildings located in conservation areas.

If you live in a listed building or a conservation area, you need permission from local planning authorities to make any noticeable alterations to your house. Preferably, all windows and doors should be preserved in their original form and repaired whenever necessary, but if it’s no longer possible, new doors often need to be an exact copy of the previous ones. That’s one of the reasons why so many of our customers order bespoke wooden doors. In London, there are almost 30 conservation areas – if your house is located in one of them, you may not be able to opt for timber composite doors. London, however, is home to numerous bespoke door manufacturers and providers, such as Sash Factory, so you should have no problem commissioning bespoke doors.
