Toronto Door Guide: How to Choose the Perfect Door

how to choose the perfect door for your Toronto home!

The door to your Toronto home sets the tone for the entire house and can influence its look and feel. But with so many door styles, materials, and finishes available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right door for your home. Fortunately, by understanding the basics of door selection, you can make an informed decision that will have your home looking its best. 

Material Considerations

When selecting a door for your home, you’ll need to start by choosing the material. Fiberglass doors are a great choice if you’re looking for something low-maintenance and stylish, with the added benefit of being energy-efficient. Steel doors are strong and durable, but may not fit all design styles.

Style Selection

The next step is to decide what style you want for your door once the material has been determined. Slab doors are simple rectangular slabs without any additional ornamentation or detailing; they come in both solid wood or metal construction varieties. Panel doors feature several horizontal panels separated by wooden strips giving them a more traditional look than slab doors; these are usually made from wood but occasionally come in metal varieties as well. 

French doors feature two hinged glass panels that open from the center outwards. In addition, double front doors have two panels, one of which swings open while the other remains stationary. In addition to providing extra security, this provides aesthetic appeal with various designs and finishes.
