Do you live in a property by the sea?

April 25th 2017

Living near to the coast is the perfect place to relax and unwind. From colourful and traditional styles to stylish contemporary styles, each coastal home has its very own unique seaside twist.

We offer a wide range of different door styles to choose from. You can really complement the look of your property with the coloured door skins, glass, and hardware options available.

It is important to take care of your home. Homes in coastal areas can often experience weathering, this could be the impact of the salty air, erosion and strong winds. This could lead to problems like scratching, denting, rotting and corroding.

So why not take a look at Solidor, our range of composite doors are the best suited front doors for homes in coastal areas. All Solidors are made up of a laminated hardwood timber core and are encapsulated with a highly durable 2mm ABS plastic skin. This is extremely robust and is highly resistant to scratches and dents.


Which style will you choose?

A particular favourite door style of ours is the Pisa. This gives any property that unique twist of a nautical theme. The circular glazing units link to a porthole window which you would find on ships. Also the tongue and groove effect creating that traditional chic look.

To give your property a coastal vibe why not add a dazzling fusion to your entrance way and select the Abstract Glass Design. This is truly a unique design, which is made up of cut textured glass pieces and hand bevelled glass, which adds a sparkle to your entrance way.


Choosing the perfect colour

We offer the widest range of 20 industry leading colour options, that you are able to choose internally and externally. Make a statement to your property by the colour you choose.

Experimenting with the colours of the sky, sea and sand are a perfect way to give your property a coastal theme. A beachy colour palette can create a relaxed coastal environment, which is perfect for a property overlooking the seafront.

Why not take a look at Duck Egg Blue, it’s a mixture of pale blue and subtle green. The shades really create a calm and cooling atmosphere, which is perfect for a peaceful home by the sea.

This truly works great with a crisp white frame, which really brings out the cooling watery tones in the shade.

Another alternative would be to look at Golden Sand, this luxurious colour creates a soft warming colour to your entrance way. Golden Sand will glimmer in the sunshine, creating that warm glow feeling all year round.


Adding the finishing touches

We offer a range of Trojan Hardware available in three different finishes. It is specifically suitable for coastal properties. It is manufactured in 304 Stainless Steel, which has excellent corrosion resistance and durability. Which means it can withstand corrosion from oxidizing and salty elements. Stainless Steel provides you a stylish clean finish with a very low maintenance cost.


Give the gateway to your home a Solidor and create that coastal vibe! Bring the seaside to your home!
