Black double security door with the most incredible gargoyle door knockers

Your house, your door, your design – get inspired!

If you’re anything like us, you’re probably very eager to travel right now and see some different sights after over two months of lockdown. So, we thought we’d take you on virtual tour of Malta via some of its truly stunning doors (you know how much we love doors!) captured by our MD when he travelled there back in 2019 with his family. We hope the images will inspire you and, don’t forget, if you see something you like, let us know and we’ll recreate it for you.

We’re experts at creating bespoke doors because it’s your house so it should be your door, your design! Take a look at the wide variety of different colours the homeowners on Malta have chosen for their doors. They’re vibrant, bright and very welcoming. And there’s a definite trend here in the UK to coloured doors, something little different to the classic black or white doors.

We’re working with more and more clients who have a specific colour in mind when it comes to replacing an existing door or, indeed, installing doors in a new build or refurbishment project. Sometimes they wish to match a rendered finish or pick out a colour that is used inside the home, or simply because it’s their favourite colour! Either way, we can accommodate those wishes which is why so many people choose Secure House.

Back to Malta. One of the best things about going on holiday of course is exploring the location. Merely by walking through the streets of a town or village, you can get a real feel for the people who live there and the culture of the country. We noticed that there is a real passion for door knockers over in Malta. And sometimes it wasn’t just one, but two knockers included on each door set. The designs are incredible – take a look below – and the detail is truly beautiful. What’s more, they more than complement the doors and serve a purpose too, you don’t ever want to miss a parcel or delivery because you don’t hear someone knocking at your door do you?

In fact, by looking at the hundreds of different doors, we could clearly see that the Maltese people love their door furniture, so much so that they even have a dedicated ironmongery museum which kept our MD and his family entertained for over an hour! From owls and seahorse, to gargoyles and traditional brass rings, the Maltese have a door knocker for every possible door design.

As with the door designs, styles and colours, if you spot a piece of ironmongery included on any of the photos that you like, let us know and we’ll make it happen! You should never have to compromise on design or security when it comes to selecting new doors for your home so we’re here to help with everything from a bespoke colour to a unique, one-of-a-kind design.

We really hope this particular blog post inspires you and gives you a few ideas for your very own grand door design. Maybe it’s time to bring a few rays of Maltese sunshine into your home?
