Your front door is the ﬁrst thing every visitor sees when they approach your home, so why not give it a personality that will stand out from the other doors in your area? Senator’s ‘Door Visualizer’ will help you decide what style of Sentinel Composite Front Door and frame you want and what colours will look best. First of all you choose the style of Sentinel Door you want, then choose colours for the frame and door, the glazing style you want, then the handles and letter plate. You can experiment as much as you want, mixing and matching until you ﬁnd your ideal front door. Simply take a photograph of the front of your house, upload it to the Senator Door Visualizer and discover how each style of door would look on your home.
At Senator Windows beautiful homes inspire us, and we inspire beautiful homes. We’ve put together this collection of photos to help inspire your vision for your home, but remember, we make every individual window and door to your exact speciﬁcations. Almost anything is possible with the extensive choice of colours and ﬁnishes available across Senator’s uPVC and aluminium ranges. Whether you’re replacing your existing windows in a traditional home, building an extension, or undertaking a contemporary new build, let us make your dream come true.
As technology advances and trends change, renovating and restyling your home becomes more exciting than ever. And at Senator, we’re here to help. As well as staying ahead of industry innovations, we also take a keen interest in contemporary architectural and interior-décor trends. In recent years we’ve seen greater demand for large glass areas with slimmer, more discreet frames. Increasingly people are looking for strong, visual statements like corner windows, as well as practical features like integrated blinds. There has also been a steadily growing interest in the use of alternative materials – both interior and exterior – which has drawn focus on colour choices. Here are some of the colours that are proving popular at the moment from Senator’s extensive colour palette.
