15 Apr Why Choose a Victorian Composite Door?
When surveying the different types of composite doors you will see a range of designs. That’s one of the benefits of modern-day doors, they can be made to fit your measurements and your aesthetic aspirations. And one of the best parts of composite doors is the fact that you don’t need to have a super modern, minimalist style door. In fact, you can have any sort of door that you like and here at Park Lane Windows, we’ve discovered that Victorian-style composite doors are some of the most popular on the market at the moment.
What is a Victorian-Style Door?
A Victorian door is simply one that has all the features that you’d expect to find in a classic 19th-century door. They are one of the most highly sought after styles on the market at the moment because of their elegant and intricate style. They are not just sought after by those living in period houses but also those living in new builds in modern houses because they add character and dynamism that you just can’t achieve with some other types of door.
The timeless elegance of a Victorian door just never goes out of style and the development of technology means that you can enjoy the aesthetic without actually having to spend the money on a vintage Victorian door. The Victorian door has a very specific design including four-panel doors that use decorative glass as a feature. This combination of textures and images helps to create a really stunning front door.
These designs can include anything from floral motifs to geometric shapes. Slightly textured glass has always been favoured in the Victorian front door as it obscured the view of the inside of your home. This is so important for the maintenance of your privacy, ensuring that you’re not compromising on either. If you imagine that your front door is the face of your house, a Victorian floor will really show off your style.
Why Choose a Composite Door?
If you’ve fallen in love with the Victorian aesthetic, you may be wondering why you shouldn’t just buy a vintage Victorian door. There are a number of them available on the market but they were built more than a century ago. This means that they might not be in the best condition and the last thing you want is for your front door to not be secure.
A modern composite door with a Victorian aesthetic can offer you the best of both worlds. Composite doors are highly secure, with quality locking systems and additional strength to ensure that your door will not be exploited by potential Intruders. The intelligent design and anti-lock picking abilities bring a 21st-century twist to a classic door.
Additionally, the modern composite door won’t require the same sort of care and attention as a vintage Victorian door will. Remember, after over a century, these doors will require a lot of care and attention to keep them from starting to rot. While this might have been part of normal life back in the Victorian period, a composite door is durable and low maintenance, meaning that you get all of the aesthetics with none of the maintenance.
