Modern living dictates modern styles, a statement which also applies when considering doors. For generations the typical “Englishman’s home has been his castle” and the castle to which most of us have aspired to has been a modest home of our own, with its own front door and a little bit of land for privacy purposes
With the resurgence of such properties as barn conversions, apartment and loft apartments often the more traditional patterns of doors do not fit with the “modern” living which requires a slick “Hi-tech” appearance. Developers of new builds both domestic and commercial, often choose contemporary door styles to enhance their developments, providing a quality finish which is both aesthetically pleasing and enhances the value.

- The glazing – the size, the shape and the number of the external glazed panels, the use of coloured and patterned glass and more significantly the locations on the door face.
- The hardware – which is invariably bold or brash and futuristic in appearance, with large expanses of brushed or anodised metal forming the back plates to the fitments.
