Which Style Will Suit Your Home?



If you are stuck on which style of door to choose, to suit your home, then look no further than Essex Composite Doors. How your door looks is really important to us, which is why we offer over 20 different styles of doors, in a vast array of colours, so you can find a door that is the perfect addition to your home.

We have listed three different styles of homes below, and suggested which of our doors and accessories, would complement each one.

Traditional Homes

Traditional homes range from cottages to manor houses, so finding a door that would suit the aesthetic of your home style, is the main priority. You have to be able to match the style of your door to the style of your house, which can be very difficult. We suggest doors with arches and panels, preferably in wood style colours, such as Golden Oak, Mahogany and Cherrywood for traditional properties. Adding a traditional door knocker and a brass or golden coloured door handle would be a great addition. Utilising a glass design can really add to the overall look and value.

Modern Homes

Choosing a door for a modern home is a much easier task. Your door style and colour doesn’t have to match with any aesthetic or theme, because modern homes are usually lighter colours that match with mostly all colours, so your choices are limitless. We suggest choosing light and pastel colours for your door, such as Grey, Chartwell Green and Duck Egg Blue. When choosing accessories and upgrades, contemporary options, such as bow handles or keypad locking systems are the perfect choice.

1970s Homes

There are many styles of 1970s homes, so bear this in mind when you are choosing a door, as matching the door style to home is harder than it sounds, especially when paired with your personal taste and style. When you are thinking about purchasing, you could stand outside, and properly imagine the house as a whole, with different types of doors to help you visualise the right choice for you. We suggest our 2 Panel, 2 Square and 1 Arch door, with an average door handle and letterbox. This door will complement your property perfectly.
Why don’t you express your style and create your perfect door online! We have an extensive range of options – style, colour, glazing, hardware and accessories – to make sure your door 100% suits the aesthetic of your home.
