Door Selection

At Online Door Store we understand that it can be confusing when you are looking to buy a new door for your home, there are so many different styles of door for you to choose from.

We are here to help you make the right decision, whether it’s a Period Door or something more modern, whether it be an internal door or an external door, fitting the right door will complement
the aesthetic appearance of your home for many years to come.

If it is an external door you are looking for then making the right choice of door is no small task considering that it will have a significant effect on the whole appearance of your home.

Here are a few tips that may help you with your choice:

  • First of all, budget, how much are you prepared to spend on your new external door? Considering the elements and weather conditions of this country it is unwise to scrimp on
    an external door.
  • What door is going to compliment the character of your home and its surroundings, how will it look from the inside as well as the outside of your home?
  • Finishing and dressing your door will also require consideration, are you looking for a natural finish or painted (see the guide on care for your door) will it complement the period
    look of your home. What furniture are you going to dress it with? (lock, letter box, door knocker, etc)
  • Security; the external doors are the entrance to your home. Why would you compromise the safety and security of your home by fitting an inferior external door? Also consider the door
    frame, is that suitable for the door, a good frame is every bit as important as the door itself.
