1930’s Front Door – Anthracite Grey Timber Alternative, Thames Ditton

Location: Thames Ditton

We recently installed an elegant 1930’s front door, by the English door company into a property in the urban village of Thames Ditton.

The owners of this period property in Thames Ditton were keen to have a front door in the keeping of the character of the property and were looking for a new energy-efficient front door to improve home security, reduce noise and increase natural light.

The owners of this house heard about Thames Valley Windows after their parents recommended us for our double-glazing expertise, they wanted to learn more on how we could help give the entrance to their home a new lease of life.

After spending some time browsing our website at the full range of front door designs, available, this spurred the homeowners to contact us and arrange a design consultation in our showroom.

Our customers arranged a 1 to 1 appointment with Luke, one of our design consultants at our Bracknell showroom to view the superb range of front doors in uPVC, wood, aluminium, or composite. we have on display.

After discussion with Luke on all the different options and styles, they decided that the beautifully handcrafted timber effect Tewin door style with timber-look joints to emulate a timber door was the perfect choice to give them and their family and friends a warm welcome to their home.

The three-panelled Tewin external door is a very traditional style and one that you would associate with a traditional entrance from the old era. The distinctive feature of a 1930’s front door is the mid-rail and letterbox which now sits further up the door and not in the middle. The large glazed top panel is a superb feature to bring light into the hallway and adds a touch of class and contributes to the authentic 1930’s-period feel.

These Stormproof ranges of the front, back and side doors from English door company have a very substantial look & feel to them to complement your home.

With a multitude of colours to choose from and an extensive range of glazing options from modern glass obscure panel for optimum privacy, traditional leaded glass designs, or to add a touch of art deco, stained glass panel features.

Every A+ energy efficiency wood grain door is individually handcrafted from start to finish, and these bespoke, high-quality entrance doors will add a real touch of elegance to any property.

The homeowners choose to have the timber alternative 1930’s style door in Anthracite grey wood grain finish on the exterior and white on the interior. They decided a state-of-the-art multi-point locking system to keep the residential property secure.

The Anthracite grey colour of this traditional 1930’s front door in Thames Ditton looks aesthetically pleasing. The smart, premium chrome ironmongery door furniture to both the inside and out of the door enhance its elegance and gives the ultimate first impression to visitors.

Anthracite grey is a beautiful subtle colour choice for a front door; it is one of the most luxurious shades of grey and has been a trend colour for front doors and windows frames. It is the colour every homeowner wants it gives a touch of contemporary elegance to both modern and traditional homes.

The Thames Ditton homeowners are now enjoying their stylish and functional uPVC door, from English Door Company by Evolution front doors. They are keen to recommend Thames Valley Windows to friends and family. Not only do they love the new front door but they were impressed with cleanliness on the installation –the friendliness and knowledge of the staff, and even they were pleased that the fitters helped to create such a smooth home improvement process.

Our clients have now been enjoying their new 1930’s front door for a few weeks and have advised us by email: The new front door has been a lifestyle change, increase in property value and space. Very much met expectations and beyond. Really pleased with the quality, the service and we have had a lot of positive comments about what an improvement it is!

They also left us this excellent Trustpilot review of which we are delighted. From the beginning, we were really impressed with the service received—great communication from the entire team and really efficient. Had a slight problem with the door but an appointment was made straight away, and it was dealt with extremely quickly. Love our new front door. Thank you!
