How to create the right entrance in your home




A perfect front door creates a stunning entrance to your home and sets the tone for what’s inside.

Of course, it’s a vital, functional item, but at the same time your front door says a lot about your home – and it definitely contributes to the style of your exterior. It also makes a statement about the kind of interior that’s behind it, so adding kerb appeal is a big deal for proud homeowners these days.

Whether you’re choosing a front door for a period home or a place that’s much more contemporary, it’s important to think about the kind of look you want to achieve.

Consider what you want the door to be made from, its security benefits and the price and you will be well on the way to making the right choice for your home.

Aluminium Entrance Doors

Aluminium entrance doors can be used in any project and offer a bold design for both the modern home or more traditional one.

They can create a truly stunning entrance in your home and there’s a huge selection available.

Combining style and functionality, aluminium entrance doors are stylish, classy and offer a high level of security and thermal efficiency – which means you could see a reduction in your energy bills!

At Kompass, we’re proud to stock a complete selection of aluminium entrance doors to suit your style.

Aluminium provides slim frames, strength and versatility, which means your entrance door will require very little maintenance and it certainly won’t need repainting any time soon!

You can choose from a full selection of designs, styles, colours and finishes to create a bespoke entrance that will leave you neighbours green with envy.

Whether you live in Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire, we’re here to help. At Kompass, we can work alongside you to design the perfect entrance to your home.

Modern or classic, striking colours or muted greys – which are bang on trend – you decide. We also have a dual colour option so you can match both the interior and exterior of your property.

Something else, for a complete aluminium glazing transformation, we can also match your stunning aluminium front door to our fantastic range of aluminium windows.

Timber Entrance Doors

Choosing the perfect entrance door is a decision that you should not take lightly. Give yourself time to think about the look you want to achieve and come and talk to us if you need some expert help and advice.

At Kompass, our timber entrance doors have been designed so you can enjoy the beauty of classic timber but at the same time reap the benefits from modern performance technology.

Whatever you’re thinking, we have a timber entrance door to suit your home. Contemporary or traditional, we’ll help you make a truly grand entrance. Don’t forget, timber doors are robust and teamed with an aluminium frame, they are strong, durable and offer high thermal efficiency.

You’ll see that they are a functional entrance to any home, but that doesn’t mean they lack style. They are also extremely weather resistant, so they will withstand the harshest of winters.

Choose a timber entrance door and you’ll be able to select the colour you’d like. Whether you want a classic black, stylish grey, or a brighter colour like red, we have they available.

Top 4 tips on choosing your new front door

Choosing your new front door is pretty straightforward but there are several points to consider if you want to achieve the perfect look.

Here’s our guide to getting it right.

  1. Design

It’s up to you what you choose but bear in mind the age of your property and try and pick something that’s in keeping with it. Of course, if you live in a listed building or a conservation area, you are likely to have limited options – but good quality door specialists will be able to help and advise you on this.

  1. Price

Have a budget in mind but don’t focus your efforts solely on price – it’s never the best place to start. Quality always come first. For real kerb appeal it’s worth considering an aluminium entrance door.

  1. Security

Find a door that is strong, resilient and durable and you’ll be making the right choice. Yes, it’s an investment, but you need a secure locking device.

  1. Thermal efficiency

If you didn’t know, a good quality door will reduce outside noise, giving your home better insulation. Retaining heat in the home is enormously important and a new front door can definitely retail heat in the home.

  1. Style

Our aluminium entrance doors are available in a full selection of designs, styles, colours and finishes to create a bespoke entrance to your home in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

  1. Material

Take time to think about whether you’d like an aluminium entrance door or a timber entrance door. Today, both of these styles are hugely popular, so the choice is yours. As you know, aluminium provides slim frames, strength and versatility, which means your entrance door will be virtually maintenance free. If you’d like a timber entrance door, you can still create a modern look which incorporates the characteristics of classic timber.
