Here at The Door Zone, we’ve put together a list that we hope will help you in making a choice for your desired front door. So here are 5 things to look out for …

1.) Door Material

One of the common things overlooked about front doors is that they are available in a wide range of materials. Some of the common ones are….


– Available in a number of styles and colours, excellent insulating properties, keeping the external noise to a minimum.

2.) Style of Front Door

Once you’ve selected the material of the door you want, then it’s also worth considering the style you’d like.

This will be either contemporary or Traditional. The images below shows the look of both styles, and puts it into perspective just how they will come across.
