Home renovations are incredibly popular here in Perth, as well as all across Australia. While many people consider renovating particular areas of their home, most don’t pay attention to external doors unless they need to be replaced. However, this is somewhat of a mistake as an external door can really define the look of a home. External doors are the first thing that people notice, and they can also help raise the value of a home.
As the head of purchasing at Ross’s Discount Home Centre, I have years of experience in dealing with external doors with customers in Perth. Today, I will list some of the most common types of external doors you can consider for your home renovation.
Single hinged doors
Single hinged doors are a popular choice for entrance doors in Perth. These doors feature a traditional design with swivelling hinges fixed to one side. Single hinged doors can open out indoors or outwards in a left or right configuration as per your preferences.
The biggest advantage offered by single hinged doors is that they are available in a myriad of styles and designs. Hinged doors can be manufactured in a variety of sizes, and they can be customised to your needs. Hinged doors are also a great option for narrow openings.
French doors are arguably the most lavish type of external doors in Perth. They are characterised by a pair of large single hinged doors that open away from one another. Typically, French doors are made of multiple glass panels framed in timber, and they can open inwards or outwards.
French doors are a great option for homes that have grand entrances. They can maximise the width of an opening, and they offer a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors.
Bi-fold doors have really taken off over the past decade. They consist of multiple panels which can be stacked together to create an opening. Typically, a bi-fold door consists of two or more hinged glass panels that are placed on a sill track. By pushing one or both sides of the panels, bi-fold doors can be opened or closed.
While bi-fold doors are relatively new, they are quite popular because of their unique look. They can make any space appear to be larger than it actually is and because causes no obstructions, they are great space savers. Depending on a particular space, bi-fold doors can be made to open inwards or outwards.
Finally, we have sliding doors; which are by far the most popular type of external doors in Perth. As opposed to all other types of doors, sliding doors do not open inwards or outwards. Rather, a sliding door contains two or more glass panels which slide on top of one another (or into a wall cavity).
The biggest advantage of sliding doors is that they are a great space saving option. They also offer a seamless transition from the inside to the outside and give the illusion of more space. Additionally, sliding doors can easily be customised to make them more secure and functional. They present a wonderful balance of style, functionality and affordability, making them the ideal choice for many homeowners.
