The doors in your home serve more than just a functional purpose, they are an integral part of your home design as well.
While ease of access and security are essential trends that will never go out of fashion, there are new styles and fashions for doors every year. We will help you keep your finger on the pulse of what the next big trends are for home doors with this guide on what to expect in 2022.
Aluminium Doors (And Windows)
There once was a time where people would steer clear of doors made entirely of aluminium frames simply because they believed doors should be made of wood and match or complement the colours of the walls.
But aluminium doors have come a long way in recent years and can be customised to suit almost any home decor. You can get different shades of aluminium, ranging from ultra-light to suit white, beach and Hamptons style homes to ultra-dark to fit in with woodgrain and deep brown colours. Powder coating also means you can get a variety of fresh and bold colours for your aluminium doors.
Aluminium and glass make a perfect pairing and will be a huge trend for Aussie homes moving forward. These doors are not just for access to pool areas anymore and are a perfect option to allow natural light into your home.
These aluminium doors also boast a range of features that wooden doors do not, like complete locking mechanisms that cannot be forced open, superior seals and resistance to warping or fading over time. You will get a perfect installation that will eliminate drafts, total security and style to suit your home.
Versatility is the main trend for 2022 and bi-fold doors are one of the only solutions that have options to meet literally every taste and requirement. You don’t need to have a sprawling home to make use of them either, modern solutions are being customised for smaller homes and apartments that are attractive and functional.
What are bi-fold doors? These are options that will fold away in a concertina effect so you can open up your home, or seal it as you wish. You can use them to make your kitchen, living and dining spaces all part of one open-plan design – and then seal them off individually as desired. The key benefit these doors offer compared to sliding doors is that they can be custom made to make up the entire wall, rather than just a section of a wall.
It is a way to completely transform your home as the weather or situation requires.
The global shift toward more sustainable homes and the fight against climate change will continue to ramp up in 2022. Insulated doors will become more popular as a way to control the climate in your home without having to rely as heavily on heating and cooling devices that put a heavy drain on your electricity bill.
Not only will these doors help keep you comfortable in a way that is better for the environment, but they will ultimately save you money in the long run – making them more of an investment than a purchase.
