The latest front door trends

From the street, the front door is what defines your home design. It’s a first impression to neighbours and friends alike; and sets the tone for the interior style. It’s also one of the easily improved and potentially creative spaces in your façade.

Bi-Folding Doors

National door supplier KRGS Doors recently released their new Clearbreeze Bi-Folding Doors, which allow home renovators and interior decorators to include a little Hamptons-style into their home renovation.

Optimum placement of windows and doors

If at all possible orientate your living areas towards the north. Then add large windows to get the best natural light with the biggest amount of solar heat gain in winter and heat protection in summer. This will allow the sun in to warm up your home in winter for free.

Front door freshen-up with Dulux Paints

Whether you want to go bright with a jewelled tone; dramatic with a darker shade; or friendly and welcoming with a warm terracotta tone such as Dulux® Very Terracotta; a fresh coat of paint on the front door will elevate the mood and style of your home.

Metal finishing services for door handles and hardware

Ageing Copper and Brass. Ageing brass involves immersing clean brass into a solution that has been formulated to produce tones considered “architectural”. This is the bronze/brown which deepens with the length of time the brass is immersed in the solution.

How to refresh the garage door

A fresh coat of Hammerite Garage Door Paint [750ml priced at $34.75] can give your garage door a whole new lease of life and brighten the entire exterior of your home.

Barrier-free door threshold

External hinged doors with a level threshold that stop draughts would be the ideal in many situations. No door draught-stoppers, or fabric door snakes; just a perfect level seal to keep out draughts, noise and water. This is now possible with the new magnetic threshold from Paarhammer Windows & Doors.
