Where Do I Start When Buying A New Door?

Money, money, money – how much do you have to spend? Once you know this, you can tailor your search to the right door company and type of door. Like everything we buy there are always luxury and budget options, and some in between.


Where to buy doors? – from the big name companies to bespoke joiners – you will have lots of options. Large DIY stores tend to stock the most popular door styles, but don’t forget builder’s merchants and specialist door retailers – they are also open to the public and offer a wider choice at competitive prices with the benefit of having individual service and advice.


Favourite door style – why not look through some home improvement magazines and websites for inspiration – then save your favourite pictures and try to find a door company that offers something similar. Think about your home décor and match the doors to key design features like the kitchen, flooring or staircase. Doors should be treated like furniture to complement your design theme.


To finish or not to finish – one thing to point out is that not all doors are supplied fully finished. Always check first, so that you can purchase your paint or varnish and plan the time to finish them. There is nothing wrong with buying an unfinished door, in fact it is ideal for those that love DIY or want to match the doors to a particular design theme.


Hanging doors – is a tricky business , consider using an experienced fitter and don’t forget to budget for handles, locks, latches and hinges.
