How to choose doors for brick houses with white windows

Houses in the UK aren't all contemporary rendered beauties. So, it can be hard to choose a front door that works with the varied styles of brick houses with white windows that are scattered around the country. 

Many houses were built in the 60's or 70's and are slightly modern but not enough for something too contemporary. Others are very traditional but are being updated and need something to bridge from old to new.  There are also the new builds built with brick and white windows but don't really fit into any design genre other than say mock Georgian or circular 1990s. In addition, there are the houses being extended with a very obvious contemporary addition making the front door a really hard decision.

We've put together a selection of images from our in house library of doors we have supplied for various types of houses. From Victorian terraces to new builds and bungalows, we hope we've covered most house styles and how these clients have chosen to work 'the door'.

A couple of points to keep in mind:

1. It's important to take the tone of the brick into consideration if you are considering hardwoods like Oak and Iroko. Bricks with a beige and brown tone work well with both these hardwoods, but bricks with a redder tone work better with Iroko.

2.  Painted RAL colours see www.ral.com  will work with nearly any of these house styles and brick types. There is no need to limit your choice between white and black.

3. Be bold - design doesn't need to be limited to either a vertical or horizontally boarded design.
