A statement traditional timber door brings thermal efficiency to this Ipswich home
Though the original door had some lovely qualities, our customers, Somer and Dan in Ipswich wanted to replace it with a traditional timber door that prevented the drafts that they had been suffering, and improved the security of the home, whilst providing a striking focal point to the outside.
Somer and Dan chose a beautiful traditional entrance door in Grey Blue (RAL colour 5008), with an envelope panel and bolection moulding, opting for etched star glass to allow the light through but still offer privacy, and complemented it with Samuel Heath antique brass unlacquered door furniture.
For the doorframe, we followed the original arc of the brickwork and installed an arched fanlight, featuring specialist gilding of the house number. This sits above the door and the two slim matching side panels.
