Box Sash Windows and Timber Entrance Doors
Mr & Mrs Wilsmore’s home in Leeds was in need of an uplift, with the main focus being the windows and doors on their prominent detached house sitting on a corner plot.
The before and after photos, especially in relation to the two entrance doors, show what a transformation the house has undergone.
“The side door was previously all glass, and whilst it wasn’t the original, it did have a character that we wanted to echo while bringing it up to date – it’s width meant that it needed to make a statement and being in the more noticeable position on the house the new door has become a grand centre piece”
Mrs Wilsmore explains.
The custom side entrance door is based on our Bardwell design with toplight finished in ‘Harewood Grey’ with an ‘Off-White’ frame, 27mm astragal bars and brass ironmongery. The front door is a Chalfont design with toplight, painted in ‘Harewood Grey’ with a frame matched to Farrow & Ball’s ‘Old White’ and chrome ironmongery.
Box sash windows hung on traditional chains and weights are finished in ‘Off-White’.
Commenting on the process and the overall result, Mrs Wilsmore says,
“the conduct of all involved was very professional from start to finish; a very good job has been done and all was finished well.”
“We’ve had lots of positive comments from neighbours – we’re really very pleased with everything, they’re lovely.”
