How To Decide A Door Style For Your Home

Any decision that needs to be made about home improvements isn’t easy; from repainting to structural changes, a lot of considerations need to be made. What’s more, many of these decisions will most likely cost both time and money to execute, so there are plenty of pressures to make sure that you are making the right decision.

With this in mind, as a leading door supplier in Scotland, we have created this guide for the indecisive bunch of the population, offering a range of things you need to consider helping you decide what door style to choose for your home.

Your Home’s Architectural Features

Whether you have a sleek ultra-contemporary property or a charming period home that harks back to the days of yore, your home’s overall style and look will heavily factor into your decision of what door you want to choose. Luckily, there is a range of door styles that will complement your home, no matter what the style is. But, of course, this will make the decision more difficult. We recommend flicking through interior magazines or looking at interior blogs with your family and seeing what doors are pictured – this can give you some much-needed inspiration and clarification on what you might want.

Visit Showrooms with Pictures and Swatches

Visiting showrooms of suppliers and designers is a great way to see styles in the flesh, as it is one thing seeing a design online, but it entirely another when seeing a design in person. You can assess the materials, the wood grains and the styles in person; you may be surprised that you are drawn to a style that you completely overlooked on the website. Make sure to visit the showroom with pictures of your home, as well as paint colours and textile swatches so you can see if this complements the door colour.

Don’t Be Afraid To Take Your Time

It can be really hard to make a decision under pressure, that is why you need to allow yourself plenty of time when making a decision for any home renovation. Set aside an hour or so with your partner to discuss this over a cup of coffee in the morning when your head is fresh and your mind is buzzing with creativity. However, you don’t want to take so much time that you are overwhelmed, so once you have made a decision, stick to it.
