Modern living dictates modern styles, a statement which also applies when considering doors
With the resurgence of such properties as barn conversions, apartment and loft apartments often the more traditional patterns of doors do not fit with the “modern” living which requires a slick “Hi-tech” appearance which is both contemporary and aesthetically pleasing in appearance.
What makes a door contemporary is a matter of personal choice but we think the following are key assets-
- The face finish -vertical grooved matchboard is currently very popular as are matt coloured flush faced doors all of which appear more dramatic with the careful use of glazing and down lighting.
- The glazing – the size, the shape and the number of the external glazed panels, the use of coloured and patterned glass and more significantly the locations on the door face.
- The hardware – which is invariably bold or brash and futuristic in appearance, with large expanses of brushed or anodised metal forming the back plates to the fitments.
