With the decorations going up and family on the way round, lots of people find that there’s no better time of year to be house-proud than Christmas. And while you’re in the midst of that house-proudness, your interior doors might be amongst the aspects of your home you notice most. After all, they do form an integral part of your home’s style. So then – why might it be a good idea to invest in a new internal door for Christmas?
We’ll start with the obvious answer first – getting a new interior door is a fantastic way to switch up the style of your home, especially if you’re looking for a change. If you’re looking to cultivate or maintain a particular style in your home, your interior doors can essentially make or break that impression – which makes them a vital consideration!
What we’re trying to say is that oak internal doors are far more than simply entryways. They’re style pieces that actually enhance your home’s architecture. A well-chosen door in the right environment can evoke a feeling in us, whether its comfort and cosiness, or a sense of well-refined sophistication. Once you’ve got a good idea of these sorts of rules, and how décor can affect our perception of a room, you can even start to play around with these perceptions. You can use, for example, a glazed Pattern 10 Shaker-style door to bridge the gap between a rustic, country styled room and a smooth, brightly coloured contemporary one. If done right, you can create a memorable and truly unique impression on your visitors!
You may already be starting to see how just a new door can completely revitalise a home, whether it reinvents it in a new style or simply a new colour. A darker-coloured door, for example, can project a feeling of warmth into a previously slightly clinical space. Another way to deal with that is by choosing a glass-panelled door to let natural light flood into the room, making it appear brighter and happier. There are certain universally recognisable trends – for example, single-panelled doors are often found in Craftsmen houses, as well as other modest houses in the early 1920s and 1930s. But you don’t have to let them define you when choosing a new door (or doors!) for your property.
Here at Savoy Timber, we pride ourselves on offering a huge variety of accessories to complement our range of oak internal doors. One such accessory is known as a pair-maker, a gloriously simple little addition that’s exactly what it sounds like: it turns two standard doors into a pair that can fill a double-door gap. All you have to do is affix the pair-maker to one of the doors, which then acts as a rebate for the other one. There’s no rebating needed!
Here at Savoy Timber, we pride ourselves on having a huge selection of oak internal doors amongst our stock, so if you’re looking for that special one to upgrade your home, look no further. You can pop into any one of our stores in Blackpool, Preston or Wigan to see them for yourself – where our friendly members of staff will be only too happy to help, too!
