Entrance Doors for Your Home – Choices and Options

Entrance Doors


Your home’s façade is the first thing that greets you as you return home from a busy day, and the first thing that welcomes your guests as they make their way up the driveway or garden path. Creating an excellent first impression is key for improving your curb appeal, and one small factor that makes a huge difference to the overall appearance of your home is the front door. If you’re considering updating your entrance door, then you’ve come to the right place – we’ve outlined all your choices and options, no matter what style you’re considering.

Leadlight - For a period finish, a leadlight door is an excellent choice. Whilst the frame is traditionally made from timber, the leadlight offers a burst of colour throughout the home. With the largest collection of original antique leadlight in Melbourne glass – dating back to the 1880s – we’re confident we have the perfect piece to complement your home, no matter what era you wish to recreate.

Wrought Iron - Similar to leadlight, wrought iron entrance doors provide an imposing appearance that resonates well with traditional homes. Symbolising strength, they are an excellent choice if you’re looking for an option that offers both beauty and the appearance of security. Our doors are all handcrafted using traditional European methods and can be made to complement your existing stair rails, balconies, and fences.

Pivot - A truly impressive feature, a pivot door is the ultimate in contemporary design. Often made from hardwood timber, these entrance doors are larger than life! They are sleek and modern in appearance, and swing open in a unique way revealing a double entrance – they are designed to make a statement.

Solid Timber - Whether you’re looking for a traditional style or a more modern appearance, solid timber could be the perfect entry for you. This is one of the most popular options, as they offer a wide range of choice within the style. With mouldings, staining and painting available, it can easily complement tones and features found throughout your property.

Glass - Another contemporary option, glass is ideal for those looking to flood their homes with natural light. However, don’t think that using glass means sacrificing privacy – with frosting and lead lighting available, you can have your cake and eat it too! Not only that, you can choose to include as much or as little glass as you desire, with a timber frame and detailing making up the rest of the entrance door.
