Arched doors, a double design statement!

Over the years, we’ve noticed a real increase in the number of customers wanting to add arched doors to their homes. Why? Because they are a real design statement and they always look so good when our installation teams have fitted them.

An arched door is a door full of status and stature, and it can deliver real grandeur to any property, even on a budget. We are able to design and manufacture arched doors to any size or specification too. They can be made as part of the door frame or as single or double doors, making them the ideal choice for every home. We can even create bevelled glass doors like this beautiful example below!

Simply stunning and totally secure, inside and out!

We’ve recently completed a simply stunning full house project that saw the Secure House team work alongside a client to help them create their dream home with a variety of exterior and interior doors.

Overview

Located in the south of England, this luxurious new build property is a real stunner. The owner contacted us after being inspired by our Pinterest and Instagram feed. She wanted to create a real bespoke feel for the property but ensure complete security at the same time. Not a problem.

Liaising with the client, architect and developer, we created several designs for security doors for the front and back door, both featuring hand-made ironmongery to add that extra special touch.

We then discussed the client’s requirements for the internal doors. A bespoke walnut veneer was a firm favourite, so we set to work designing and manufacturing multiple sets of doors, including several doubles.

Project

The front door features a horizontal, wood-effect finish with an oversize aluminium handle and side-glazed panel including security glass. Only the very highest quality materials were used to provide all of the protection associated with a high security door from Secure House.

The back door is exactly the same design but the client chose the colour artic white to further enhance the bright, clean white render used to cover the property.

The property also features several sets of sliding doors to open up the home to the fabulous, landscaped gardens that surround it. Each set of doors offers unrivalled security with burglar resistant glazing and multipoint locking systems. The super slimline frames allow the maximum amount of light into the property when closed and perfectly match the security windows installed throughout.

Heading inside, the bespoke walnut veneer internal doors are a striking addition to each of the rooms in the house. A mix of panel and glazed doors each with the same opulent black and silver inset veneers are a key design element as well and being highly functional to create the very best living space for the family.

Finally, the client had originally wanted to include a panic room within the property in order to create a safe and secure space to seek refuge in the event of home invasion, but also to store valuables when they weren’t in the property.

Having created many panic rooms over the years, this wasn’t a problem for us and we were able to manufacture a high security vault door which exactly matched all the other interior doors. This door was fitted to the area and now provides a safe haven for the client and their family.

Not only did we exceed the client’s expectations on this project, but the client has also told us that she has received multiple complements on the doors we designed and installed from anyone visiting the property. That makes us very proud!
