Septembers here, it’s back to reality

September 6th 2018

There’s no doubt that summer in the UK has been exceptional this year.  We’ve all loved those warm evenings spent relaxing in the garden with family and if we’re honest we’re rather sad that the summertime is over, aren’t we?

Now the children are back at school, the nights are drawing in and there’s a chill in the air, unfortunately it’s time to get back to reality.

A recent nationwide survey carried out by Pinterest (Back to life Report) found that 55% of Brits feel that September is the ideal month to make resolutions and lifestyle improvements.  You might be thinking of starting a new diet, decluttering the spare room or giving the front of your home a facelift with a new front door.  If it’s the latter then that’s where Solidor can help!

A new front door is a very effective way to update the front of your home and it’s a relatively quick home improvement project to start your new and improved way of life.

With so many options available to you it can be a difficult task to decide which door style and colour option are best suited to you and your style of home.

We’d recommend starting with the style options, as you’ll want to make sure that your new door compliments the external appearance of your home.  You’ll be pleased to know that whether your home is it a quaint country cottage, a detached townhouse, or a 4 bed bungalow on the outskirts of town, there’s a door style to suit every type of property from Solidor.

Another consideration should be the colour.  Think about how the tone you choose will look in contrast to the brickwork or rendering on your home.

If you decide to opt for one of our Traditional door styles such as the Ludlow, the Tenby or London door then a primary colour like red, cobalt blue or green will add maximum kerb appeal.  Then, for the finishing touches add pewter furniture and a glazing option that’s subtle yet stylish like Victorian, London Etch Border or Caledonian Rose.

If you decide that a Traditional door won’t work for you then take a look at our Italia Collection. This range features 20 exclusive designs each inspired by the Italian passion for design.   The Italia collection doors work well in all colours but for a real statement door the Palermo, Milano or Ancona in Twilight, Anthracite or French Grey will set your new door apart from your neighbours and give them a real case of door envy.

Whatever you decide, your new Solidor will look great all year round and because it’s a timber core composite door, there’ll be minimal up keep and maintenance giving you more time to curl up in front of the fire as winter approaches.

Why Mr & Mrs Somanchis chose Solidor

Mr & Ms Somanchis live in a 1950’s semi-detached house in Worcester Park, Kingston upon Thames. The original door was a heavy timber, becoming increasingly draughty and was difficult to operate which is why they decided to upgrade.
