Why should you choose wooden front doors?
Wood front doors combine tradition with the possibilities of modern design and at the same time offer incredible construction characteristics.
An entry door is the central element of the house. It attracts attention, invite visitors and simultaneously delimits the intimate interior from the outside. It’s the first thing we touch when we return home and the last one when leaving. That is why people continue to swear by wood as it gives an exclusive feeling of both warmth and solidity. For centuries, wood has been part of our homes; and with modern techniques, we’re now able to shape it into endless new shapes, imagination our only limit.
The beauty of wooden doors
Wood is a natural resource that’s regaining popularity and returning to our homes thanks to its wondrous characteristics. The colours and texture of wood make entry doors particularly charming and unique. Wood is warm and pleasant to the touch. That’s why a wood entry door feels homely, while the natural wood patterns can make your imagination soar. Wood front doors have today become so much more than what they used to be. Wood makes possible the production of traditional entrances; at the same time, wood is perfect for the most modern and complex design projects. Because wood is so versatile, it can be combined with aluminium and glass elements, resulting in an unlimited number of combinations that can be incorporated into a high quality and aesthetically pleasing product for your entrance.
Pirnar entry doors are made from three different wood types:
Spruce is the most common coniferous tree, its wood extremely bright, featuring distinct growth rings appearing as dark lines that give spruce its characteristic appearance. Wood stains and varnishes will help achieve an even brighter appearance in entry doors. However, when combined with aluminium elements, the colour scale becomes even broader.
Larch is sure to dazzle thanks to its dense structure and reddish colour. It’s usually coated using stains or oiled in order to achieve different shades. Larch blends perfectly into modern materials and gives entry doors a luxurious appearance.
Oak is a symbol of stability, durability and strength. It comes in a variety of shades from greys and whites to browns and is known to darken with time. We can take advantage of this characteristic when applying stains or oils to create shades reminiscent of exotic wood varieties.
Another wonderful property of wood is that no two pieces are the same. Its appearance, colour and texture are first influenced by the environment that the tree grew in, and later by the processing and finishing, where each piece of wood will react differently. So we can conclude that your wood front door will always be unique and entirely one-of-a-kind, regardless of the whether you decide for a traditional, rustic look, or a more modern, trendy entrance for your house.
