Matching the style of arched doors with new or old window frames
Has your front door been exposed to the elements for too long? Or is it time you made some renovations and replaced your outdated style for something new, like an arched composite front door?
Believe it or not, your windows and doors protect your home against the harsh weather conditions and, let’s face it, we get our fair share here in the UK! They also keep unwanted pests and intruders out and can enhance curb appeal too – allowing you to put your personal stamp on things. Aside from this, they save you money on your energy bills whilst increasing the overall value of your property.
But the question is, do your doors and windows have to match?
Many people prefer to match their windows to their doors, or vice versa, for a modern look. But, the truth is, as long as they complement each other nicely, it shouldn’t be too much of an issue. That means, although you could opt for an arched door to go with your arched window frames, it all comes down to your personal preference and what you want to achieve.
Here we offer a few helpful tips to help you match the style of your arched composite doors with new or existing window frames:
A traditional home is typically made from brick, stone or stucco.
More often than not, they have a front-facing gable end and symmetrically placed windows that are double-hung, have two sashes within a single frame, and provide a clean, classic look. As for the doors, wood and fibreglass are materials of choice – and those that come with a wood stain finish are a timeless addition to your home.
Luckily, our arched doors – here at ArcOframe – give the look and feel of a cosy country cottage and look great paired with square or rectangular windows as well as unusual shapes.
Low pitched roofs, porches with thick square columns, and exposed beams are synonymous with the Craftsman style.
This style is one that was first developed during the early 1900s, as part of the Art and Crafts Movement, and is just as popular as it was 100 years ago. Stained glass windows are in keeping with the home’s design and the doors are often rectangular and made from solid wood with decorative glass patterns or a divided-light window on top.
The beauty of our arched composite front doors is that there is an assortment of glass options to choose from. So, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to personalise your new doors to either match your windows or create a stunning contrast.
It’s all about the clean lines, flat roofs, asymmetrical design and simple windows with contemporary houses.
These properties tend to be bathed in sunlight and boast skylight windows – allowing loads of natural light to enter – but other styles work well too, including fixed, sliding and casement windows. All of which offer unencumbered views of the outside. To ensure a warm and welcoming entryway, doors are usually unadorned, sleek and chic and come with modern metal finishes.
Arguably the biggest benefit of arched windows and/or doors is their unique appearance. We supply an assortment of colourways and make sure that they are made to your exact sizes and measurements in-house – guaranteeing a perfect fit.
Inspired by seaside villas in Spain, France and Italy, these homes are renowned for their red terracotta roofs, stucco exteriors, balconies and arched windows and doors.
Great for breaking up the monotony of straight lines, arches are an ideal choice for Mediterranean style homes, as are window walls. These replace a fixed wall with a window that stretches from the floor to the ceiling – offering unobstructed views.
Also guaranteed to make a focal point, our arched composite doors are a timeless staple in architecture and add a touch of class to most buildings, including the Spanish or Mediterranean style.
