Luxury Doors and Homes go hand-in-hand
As homeowners, first impressions count. Whether this is your own impression or guests, it is important guests feel welcomed but also astounded by the entrance. Once you have entered the property, your home should take you on a journey through the internal doors of the house too.
Your front door will say a lot about you, for example if your front door shows elegance and style, people would expect to walk into a very clean, peaceful and tidy home. You can differentiate a luxury security door from a standard front door due to the finishing and thickness of the door. Living in a luxury home, feeling secure is beyond important. Security doors are not only a secure element but a feature of the home by creating a luxury feel to the facade. The door design and style of the front door can be completely bespoke to the highest standard and quality that you anticipate. The safety elements to our high security doors include 16 contact points between the door and the frame as a standard but can be upgraded to a motorised lock. You can also have the convenience of electronically opening your door with the use of either a fob reader, electronic keypad, fingerprint scanner or with a mobile app. With the option to add bullet proof systems, the front doors are 91mm thick and are resistant to most burglary tools including crow bars and powered drilling tools so are secure against any intruders. For our security conscious clientele, we offer further reassurance by upgrading to a bulletproof door, which can match existing decor or period finishes and features. We use engineered materials such as steel, glass and wood in various fabrications and in a variety of shapes and sizes to incorporate the design aesthetic into our client’s security solution. Our external doors are not only secure but luxury doors which go hand in hand with both luxury modern homes and also a period home.
We are finding that panic rooms are becoming more popular nowadays due to crime becoming more apparent. Our high security doors are often used as the entrance to internal panic rooms giving that extra security element when having to escape from any unwelcome attention. Panic room doors are intruder proof and also fire resistant, so you and your family have that reassurance that you are safe.
Luxury homes and architecture is a hidden escape for you in your home as well as the interior design. Internal doors are very much part of the interior design of the home and space. It often is apparent when interior designers use hardware or door finishes to scheme furniture and colours around. Luxury door finishes which will always suit and scheme well with luxury interiors are natural stained oak or walnuts, they are stylish and create texture and character within the scheme. Oak and walnut finishes can be stained in a variety of tones and can also come in a custom-made colour if you would like to have your own unique stain. In some cases, clients like to match door stains to elements in their existing homes like the windows or wooden beams.
Ironmongery and hardware for your doors are debatably more important than the door design and finish itself. Hardware holds the door in place, it is used to open and close the door, locks it and more, therefore it is important for your hardware to be hard wearing and feel secure. Our luxury hardware is made from solid brass, so it is extremely practical but also is elegant and grand. Solid brass has a reassuring feeling when griped and can come in a range of luxury living finishes such as antique brass and bronze. When opening a door with a lever or doorknob, it is similar to a handshake, therefore a sturdy grip when opening door is a sign of luxury. It is becoming very popular to use brass and bronze finishes for ironmongery to add the sense of luxury in a home. Matching hardware finishes to metal finishes in your home always ties together your interior scheme with your interior doors.
