Authentic woodgrains from Solidor

July 2nd 2018

Colour trends are forever changing. What’s “in” one month may very well be “out” the next.  Colour is such a subjective topic but one thing that we can all agree on is that a woodgrain effect Solidor will never go out of style. 

There’s no denying it, everyone loves the natural look of wood. But what we don’t like about it is the amount of effort that’s needed to keep it looking in pristine condition.  Not with Solidor!

Solidor combines all of the aesthetics of a traditional timber door but incorporates modern materials it means that there’s limited maintenance required. And you’ll be pleased to hear that there are four gorgeous, traditional woodgrain finishes within our range.

Here they are…

Irish Oak – A muted option in comparison to the other woodgrain finishes but by no means any less beautifulThis colour differs from other woodgrain options, it’s more subtle in appearance to Walnut or Rosewood and that makes it the more attractive option for many.

Golden Oak – A darker tone than Irish oak and a great option for those looking for a truly authentic woodgrain effect.  Golden Oak will add a warm glow to the front of your home, and when teamed black furniture it’s sure to look great all year round.

Walnut – With hints of caramel and chocolate Walnut provides a rich, velvety finish to your new entrance.  It’s a popular choice for many homeowners because it’s such a timeless colour.  Walnut looks great on traditional stone homes or where the house has been rendered cream or white.  By adding a contrasting frame you’ll really make a statement and get the neighbour’s heads turning.

Rosewood – The perfect choice for traditionalists! Rosewood is a dark brown colour with hints of red and orange.  Though it’s the most traditional of all of our woodgrain options Rosewood works really well with many of contemporary door styles.
