Complementing their existing designs from the Origin Range, the Front Door Collection is crafted to enhance a home’s curb appeal. These doors are not only superbly engineered but also highly customisable, ensuring a tailored fit by a knowledgeable team.
In addition to this collection, Matthew Leach, Director of Aluminium Doors Direct, offers expert guidance on selecting the perfect front door that leaves a lasting impression on all who enter the home.
Exploring Front Door Options
Leach explains, “Whether you’re replacing your door or building a home from scratch, your front door is the key to your home. It’s the first and last impression, so you want to ensure you’re choosing the right one.”
Front doors come in various designs, including timber, PVC, and composite. However, Leach highlights that aluminium is highly recommended by experts due to its strong sustainability credentials. Aluminium doors contain an insulating core and deliver low U-values. Additionally, the material is simple to recycle at the end of its life. The powder-coated finish of aluminium entrances requires minimal maintenance and no future touch-ups.
Choosing the Right Size
Matthew Leach advises, “If you’re replacing a door with the same dimensions, measure carefully to ensure you get the correct product, especially if you’re reusing the door frame.”
For those considering a larger front door, Leach notes that this can create a bold statement and provide more space for accessibility, such as wheelchairs and prams. However, available space will ultimately determine the ideal door size for your property, and expanding the aperture may result in increased costs.
Leach continues, “When purchasing a front door, the design of your letterbox is typically included. To achieve an elegant finish, match your letterbox to the handles and locks on your front door. Attention to detail enhances the curb appeal of your home.”
He emphasises the importance of choosing an energy-efficient letterbox that prevents heat loss and drafts. Additionally, it’s recommended to consider the location of the post box, as the most energy-efficient placement may not be right next to your front door. Wall-mounted letterboxes come in various colors and styles, with some large enough to accommodate larger items.
