Chosen Design

As you can see above, we have completely transformed this door from a brown woodgrain design to a sleek black composite door with gold detailing. Our customers have chosen a black frame which gives it a modern feel, with a timber appearance to keep the traditional look. 

The customers have also chosen a gold letterbox and numbers to complement their composite door installation. This works very well with their door and adds a pop of colour. The glazing is very decorative, with the gold theme continued in the glass.

Our composite doors come in a range of styles and can be customised to complement your property’s interior and exterior. If you have a design in mind or are starting from scratch, we can provide you with bespoke options to consider for your Essex home.
