The type of door can also make a world of difference. The basic types are hinged, sliding, folding and revolving types. The hinged type is when the door is hinged on one side allowing it to swing open in only one direction. The improvement on this type is the swinging type. This type is made in such a way that though it is hinged on only one side it can swing in both directions opening inwards and outwards. The sliding type is when the panels are mounted on overhead and floor tracks. These panels can slide over one another in both directions - right and left. These are used in situation of space constraints but their regular use popularity has also increased phenomenally. The folding type is when the two or more panels are joined together by hinges. These hinges allow the panels to fold over each other in whichever direction you want. Revolving type is the one where the panel is attached at the centre with means of an axis and the far ends of the panel can be pushed, which causes the panel to pivot about the axis. This type is not generally used in homes as it takes up too much space but it is quite ubiquitous in commercial establishments.
Due to the scarcity of land in the metro cities, high rise buildings have been cropping up in the last decade. The most prominent feature of the multi-story and low rise apartments is balcony. It is that part of a house or a building that allows people to experience and enjoy the outer world within the boundaries of the house. Usually balcony is built in the exterior of the house and looks like a platform projecting from the wall. It is fitted with Balcony doors that enable insiders to reach out to open spaces. It is supported by columns or console brackets, and enclosed with boundary walls or railings.
If you wish to go for a more contemporary feel, then opt for front door designs which have clean lines and a minimalist look along with impressive looking handles. If you want to have glass inserts, then try and have the translucent, stained or etched glass. It is gaining popularity as it allows a lot of light inside, affords privacy and at the same time blends seamlessly with the home's overall look. Those in the business say that pivot doors and those which combine timber with metal inserts are also widely successful as they lend a very European look. Now days you even have custom-made doors which are both high on aesthetics and other practical considerations. All these tips should help you in making the right decision while scouting for front door designs.
