Letting in more light
As we’re spending a lot more time in our homes during the day, you may start to notice the darker night drawing in earlier and earlier. As the weather and light outside can often affect your mood, why not fit in some classic French doors, new bi-folding doors or larger windows in your home? If you want to add more light into your porch area, why not opt for a new door with large clear or glazed windows built in?
With a lot of us spending more time at home and with home-working becoming more prevalent, it’s an opportunity to reorganise and empty out that one room you’ve been using as storage and create the perfect space for your home office. If you’ve chosen the right room for you and have acquired the perfect desk to house everything, you may want to think about acoustic glass to block out any outdoor sound or installing bigger windows to allow more light into the room.
We’re contacted by people year-round who are looking for a way to connect their indoor and outdoor spaces. Bi-folding doors and French doors offer the perfect gateway between your kitchen or dining room and your garden and allow a lot more natural light in. If your garden allows it, why not also install a garden room to create a separate outdoor space to entertain guests (socially distanced or otherwise) and use as a chill out space away from the hustle and bustle of the house.
2020 has helped people in the Yorkshire area really appreciate where they live. Rather than looking to move, we’re looking to renovate. If you own a period property or an old farmhouse, a new front door can make so much difference to the look of your house. Windows can too – with the added bonus of reducing your heating bills! By opting for timber materials when choosing your new front door, you can achieve the look of a traditional front door with the security and durability of a completely modern door.
As we all become more aware of the impact of climate change, we are keen to make our business as sustainable as possible. If you’re looking to replace your windows or doors, why not opt for Accoya timber which has increased durability, improved thermal insulation and a longer coating life. Timber also naturally absorbs carbon dioxide and is biodegradable so is perfect for those of you who are conscious about sustainability while adding character to your home. Unlike older timber doors though, it’s built to last.
By shopping with us, you’re not only getting high-quality and people who are passionate about what they do, but you are supporting our local family business! In turn, we try to support others by sourcing accessories (door knobs and letter boxes) from within the UK and working with other local builders and stained glass experts.
