DESIGN YOUR OWN DOOR

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 Visualiser’ will help you decide what style of Composite Front Door and frame you want and what colours will look best. First of all you choose the style of 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 Visualiser and discover how each style of door would look on your home.
