Open the doors to your home – a space of beauty, reflection and extension of you.  Your front door will be used at least once a day, why not make it an impressive entrance?

Create that dramatic entrance into your home using an oversized door.  More and more architects and builders have been expanding the width and height of doorways creating a more dramatic effect. These oversized doors create an impressive front door and hallway.  Using sidelights can also add to the transformation of the entry point to your home.  Oversized doors can be bought off-the shelf or custom-made to suit your preferences, creating a unique entrance to reflect your character. Choosing mismatched door hardware can really ruin the overall aesthetic of any door. When selecting your door hardware make sure that it suits the style of the door in question.

For a more classic style to your doorway you can consider using decorative stain glass inserts.  The added benefit apart from the extra light flowing into the hallway, is that the glass offers extra insulation by being double-glazed.  When privacy is an issue, obscured glass can be used without losing the benefit of the light coming through.

If you are looking for a contemporary design to create an impressive entrance, then consider the pivot door.  The pivot door is an inviting contemporary solution for replacing the traditional sliding glass doors and double entrance doors creating a modern entrance.  They require a larger opening space or are best suited to the oversized entrance hall.

Go on, make an impressive entrance.
