People spend a lot of time and money to make a house strong and durable, good enough to last for years to come and hopefully generations. While doors might not last forever they might just as well stay as long as your house does so it pays to put in a little time and effort into your doors, as you would to your house.
The styling of the door way and associated door furniture is entirely dependent on the type of house the entryway opens into, so a good old sturdy oak might look fine on your traditional country home while a cool, contemporary house needs something that is both stylish and strong like aluminium for instance.
Appearance of the accessories is a deciding factor in the finished look of your door, so find something that not only caters to the look but also survives the kind of environment you live in. Steel accessories are the best for country homes while chromium and brass might lose their shine. However, keep in mind the appearance. A rather posh, modern steel handle on a Victorian mansion would look as good as an antique door knob on a modern chrome plated door.
Home improvements include both security and beauty. So while you can’t sacrifice the security on account of having a glass door that is beautiful, you can try out partial glazed varieties etc., uPVC’s are another option with their inbuilt security mechanisms, apart from the other sturdy, well fitted entry ways.
