I have wanted this door since I first saw it advertised in a magazine. It sums up the sort of house I want to live in and maybe, just maybe, by having this front door our old house will start to feel more cottagey than dated bungalow! We don't have the lovely oak porch but we will have some larch cladding on the walls either side of the door.
We've chosen the Dordogne style for our interior doors. We were debating whether to paint them or not but have decided to leave them natural oak and will just wax or oil them to try to keep the natural colour. Since deciding on these I keep seeing them everywhere! I thought I was being so unique but obviously not!
We'll have two glass versions of this door too. One into the new dining room which is a very dark room as light will only get in from the kitchen window at the far end of the room. We will also have our inner porch door with glass to let in as much daylight as we can into the hallway. I do love these doors!
The only thing we have yet to choose is the door handles. What a dilemma! I quite like the idea of having door knobs but I seem to be alone with that option. Chrome or brushed steel? Backplate or not? Who would have thought there were so many decisions to make.
