Adding Value to Your Home: Doors

So far in our “Adding Value to Your Home” series we have looked at decking and paving: both outdoor improvements. As part of National Home Improvement Month, we would now like to draw your attention indoors. Here at Haldane Fisher, our newly established “Door Studio” has been rapidly expanding. We have a fantastic range of doors on display and we firmly believe that a new door can completely change the look of a room. You are updating the decor of your house and thus increasing its market value. You are also adding your own personal style to a room that was either designed by the previous owner of the home, or a design you picked years ago.

So what are your options when it comes to interior doors?

We have a wonderful selection of interior laminate doors which are available in a number of colours including grey, ivory and walnut. These doors are a contemporary style and are made from our tree recycle program. Laminate doors are very durable and extremely easy to clean - a wipe from a damp cloth is all that is required.

Alternatively, hardwood doors remain effortlessly classic, and our White Oak doors are undoubtedly one of our most popular. This hardwood range offers both raised and fielded panel doors, flush panel doors and panelled glass options in both clear and frosted. The addition of a glass panel is an excellent choice to increase lighting within the room. Our solid white primed doors allow you to choose your finish in white or to paint the door in whatever colour best suits your interiors. This option is as low-maintenance as laminate doors: when sealed effectively with a  protective top coat it is guaranteed to stay in top condition for years.

No matter what door you opt for, don’t forget about the accessories! We can provide a pre-finished oak rebate, intumescent fire seals in white or brown, as well as intumescent fire and smoke seals. Our partner, Key Hardware, will have every other type of ironmongery you could wish for your interior doors.

If you have not updated any of the doors in your house for many years, this is able to increase the value of your home practically as the doors will now be much safer with updated fire safety features: all our doors are either 40mm or 44mm thick and fire-checked. A solid wood door can hold off a fire for up to 20 minutes. Other benefits include energy efficiency: solid doors are better at retaining heat, especially those with a tight seal against the surrounding frame.

Changing doors is one of the most cost-effective way to increase the value of your home, and one of quickest, with a change of door taking only a couple of hours.

Each of our Door Studios cover a range of styles, finishes, colours and prices to suit individual styles. Our Door Studios are based in Newry, Portadown, Bangor and Lisburn; however you can find door displays in all of our branches. So feel free to call into your local branch where one of our members of staff will be more than happy to help you - they are always receiving training to enhance their already extensive knowledge on the latest trends and styles.
