A specially-made front door, designed to your own individual specifications, provides a golden opportunity to stamp your own personality on your home. Your front door sets the tone for the rest of your home and ties together the style of the building. But above all, it provides a warm welcome for you and your guests.
Beautifully designed bespoke doors are available in a wide range of colours, designs and materials, so it’s a good idea to speak to your local joinery company about the choices that are open to you. Here at JLA Joinery, we have been designing, creating and installing sensational custom made wooden doors for many years, and we are always happy to discuss the range of possibilities which are available.
From the many inspired creations we have produced, here are a few of our favourites:
Solid oak DOOR with side windows
We consider ourselves to be one of the finest joinery companies West Sussex has to offer, in part because we insist on using top quality materials. This superb solid oak front door is pleasing to the eye and extremely robust. The design features eye-catching horizontal and vertical grains, and the window panels on both sides of the door will also allow for a lighter hallway.
Solid oak DOOR with upper window
The design of this recessed door is particularly impressive, giving the installation a dramatic sense of perspective. Solid oak will last for many years, and will retain its beautiful look thanks to a strong grain. When it comes to bespoke doors Sussex home owners know they can choose from a range of woods, but oak is a popular choice due to its modern and contemporary look that is so on trend at the moment.
Walnut DOOR WITH SIDE WINDOWS
Another design which incorporates glass panels on either side of the door, this three-panelled installation really stands out from the rest. Many joiners work with walnut, in part because the material offers a sturdy and attractive finish but also due to the warm, rich hues that are so attractive. It’s available in a variety of colour options, depending on which part of the tree is being used.
Pine is a good material to use for front doors, because it’s affordable and extremely adaptable. It looks good, it weathers well and it’s available in various grain and colour combinations. We like this design because it fits well with the weathered brickwork, and the white paintwork offers a bright welcome to visitors. The clear glass window also ensures plenty of light in the front hall.
