Your Guide To Traditional Composite Doors

This style allows households to incorporate the characteristics of one or more historical styles, which can help to give their homes the traditional charm will all the benefits for modern day living.

Traditional style is usually associated with ornate details such as welcoming front entrances, cosy fireplaces, bay windows and tiled floorings all of which can be suitable for both urban and rural properties.

Take a look at our guide to help choose the perfect traditional-style front door that can help to add a touch of understated elegance to your home.

Endurance Doors have a wide selection of classic doors to choose from that are inspired by the Georgian and Victorian eras, perfect for achieving a traditional style whilst still being modern in functionality and security. Some of our personal favourites include the Etna, Tate, Ben Nevis and Mont Blanc designs.

The Etna
One of our most popular designs boasts a classic template of two vertical panes of glass on the top half with similar grooving’s to the panel at the bottom. The large glazing units allow plenty of light to enter into your home whilst still maintaining your privacy with our range of decorative glass options.

The Tate
This style is a twist on our popular Snowdon door with a single moulded panel at the bottom instead of a twin. The glazing unit featured on the Tate ensures that plenty of light enters your home; homeowners also have the option to add Georgian bars to the unit to create the appearance and feel of a traditional grand entrance.

The Ben Nevis
Our Ben Nevis is a solid style door that replicates not only our Etna door but also that of a traditional Georgian style. It is ideal for homes that may be situated on main roads to ensure the utmost privacy and security.  

The Mont Blanc
This popular style features a mostly solid panel with two small glazing units at the top to allow light to flood into the entranceway. It is ideal for households that are looking to maintain a good level of privacy. Best suited to a traditional exterior, this door looks great in any colour.

After selecting the design of your new door, the next important factor would be to decide on the colour. By taking into consideration existing features such as surrounding brickwork and windows it can help you to create the impression you wish to make.
