Choose from striking modern designs to easy updates. Exterior doors There's plenty of choice, from glorious wood and sexy metal to a door painted in a hot hue. CHOOSING THE RIGHT DOOR 'A front door should give your home wow factor while also providing security and insulation,' saysElizabeth Assaf, co-founder of Urban Front, which specialises in modern, designer-style frontdoors. 'Consider the outside of the house - is it rendered or brick, traditional or modern; is there awooden or tiled floor in the hall?' Although panelled doors will never fall off the style radar, youdon't have to adhere strictly to the age of your home. Don't be afraid to create a contrast betweenperiod architecture and a contemporary door. The latest trends include: Wide doors Regular doors are 830mm wide but if your current door has enough room on eitherside to accommodate a wider frame, 950mm door can make a real impact. Full-height glass side-lights can also help to flood a gloomy hallway with natural light. Solid woods Oak used to be a hot favourite, but rich golden Iroko and striking American blackwalnut are increasingly becoming the popular choice. Jeld-Wen is using engineered woods foradded strength and security, and Urban Front's solid wood doors have a steel reinforced core toprevent warping. Simplicity 'A modern door can create a cool contrast, even on a Victorian or Edwardian home,'says Nabil Assaf, also of Urban Front. 'Concealed hinges and subtle stainless-steel inlays helpkeep the look modern but minimal.' Pivot doors 'Bespoke pivot doors are popular as they can be made wider than they are tall,' saysMark Dyson of Enclosure Architects. 'There is no "bending moment" when the door opens, whichtakes the strain off hinges, so pivot doors can be made up to 4m wide.' PAINTED DOORS For red-brick and Georgian houses, Farrow & Ball's director Sarah Cole suggests using Black
 
Blue (£44.99 per 2.5l) - it's neither truly black nor blue and gives a smart look. MidnightBlue is elegant on a white-fronted period house. For something classic, green or grey works well; go for gloss on a townhouse or matt in thecountryside (Carriage Green, Studio Green and Off-Black are currently Farrow & Ball's mostpopular shades.) 'For more complex colours, deeper tones work better on front doors,' suggestsLouise Smith, colour and design manager at Dulux. 'My favourites are Cocoa Blush 1 orMaraschino Mocha 1 for a decadent look and Tarragon Glory 5 or Red Stallion 4 (£16.99for 2.5l) for a more intense look.' nternal doors'These days, a door doesn't just let you into a room: it can be made of steel or glass, or act as awall or a window. Press a button and bingo - it's no longer there! There are even ones you canmake disappear into the floor,' enthuses James Wells of Wells Mackereth Architects. Increasingly,doors inside your home no longer block one room from another, but instead allow for flow of lightand movement throughout a space. Glass A hot trend is for sliding and panel doors in glass with barely there fixtures and fittings.Good suppliers include The Disappearing Door Company, Innerdoor and Dorma. Sliding Gone are the days of wobbly sliding doors - the new pocket doors literally disappear intothe wall. 'They are a complete system to which you can add you own door, leaving no need tocompromise on door style,' says Padraic Healey of The David Barley Company, distributors of thesleek Eclisse range of doors in the UK. 'They're also ideal as room dividers between living andsleeping areas,' says James Fletcher, MD of Draks. Invisible Curved or flat seamless doors lend continuity to a space. Try Dooria and Doorhaus. Textured wood Try doors in dark grainy woods. Barausse's Panama range uses coconut shell tilesand the Tetrix range boasts teak, stainless steel and leather. FIRE SAFETY AND SECURITY Fire preventionWhen replacing a door, inside or out, be aware of fire regulations (visit the professional sectionabout Part B regulations at planningportal.gov.uk). Generally, this applies to any door that leadson to what is deemed a fire escape route. Royde & Tucker has created a discreet fire doorsystem called SmoClo as an alternative to self-closing fire doors. It can be easily fitted to existingdoors as long as it is part of an existing mains-operated smoke detection system. Visitfiresafety.org.uk for more info. Home securityEnsure any lock fitted meets the British Standard five-lever mortice deadlock system - a Yale-typerim latch cylinder lock on its own is not sufficient protection,' says The London Door Company'sKerry Walters. Security specialists Banham recommends a combination of a latch lock and adeadlock (try a Banham M2002 cylinder mortice deadlock and a L2000 rim deadbolt, which areboth insurance approved and to British Standard 3621). If you live in a high-crime area, investigatethe benefits of a reinforced steel front door. For added security, opt for laminated security glass.

Try SDS London or Architectural Components. For an alternative to metal housenumbers, try a contemporary Perspex or stainless-steel plaque by Abode Plaques.Multi-textured handles For internal doors, HAF Designs and Turnstyle Designs have unusualhandles combining sleek metals such as steel and bronze with wood and stitched leather details.Holloways of Ludlow is a good source for traditional knobs, knockers and locks. B&Qsupplies a collection of good-value, contemporary and traditional door handles DECORATIVE TOUCHESUse decorative film for a quick, modern update on glass panels. It can be cut to provide interestingpatterns, words or numbers. 'The opaque finish of frosted film gives privacy while still allowing lightthrough, and really makes your door stand out,' says Karen Lansdown, co-founder of decorativefilm company Brume. REPAIR OR REPLACE?'Doors are key to the energy conservation, security and aesthetics of your home,' says MarkRoberts, product manager for Jeld-Wen. Consider its condition - if moisture has entered the door,it may have caused it to expand, discolour and crack. A carpenter can assess whether it hasweakened the door beyond repair, or whether a sand, varnish (or paint) and re-alignment can sortit. A good door also helps energy efficiency: if there is a draught, it may need to be re-aligned or aframe improved, or a weatherstrip at the top or bottom might help. Ensure glass is double-glazedand fitted well. You can find more information on interior design and interior design ideas at Livingetc.  Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Penny_Day  ==== ====Watch this amazing video
