Here’s How Oak Doors Can Help To Lift The Interior Look Of Your House

Some things never go out of style, and solid wood doors are perhaps just as much, if not more, evergreen as anything else on that list. Solid wood doors, especially oak doors, have been a tried and true favourite of homemakers and decorators alike. Not only do they last extremely long which makes them an excellent investment, but they never go out of style, and will always be a great door option no matter what area or what the fashion trends are.

Here are some of the ways Oak Veneer Internal Doors can lift the interior look of your house:

  1. Customizability

Oak doors are extremely customizable and people can get all kinds of carvings and designs made on their door of choice. This makes them the best option for anyone who has an artistic streak and wants the classic solid piece to make their house look chic but also wants to personalize their house and add a bit of flair to their doors.

  1. Colour selection!

Most people think that oak doors have the same colour and that they can get boring very soon, but that is most definitely not the case! While the base of the oak door is the solid oak shade, a fresh coat of varnish and a good quality paint can change it up to whatever you want. This makes these doors perfect for all kinds of interior designs, themes, and colour schemes.

  1. Statement pieces

Some people like their houses to be extremely simplistic and echoing the minimalist vibe, which is why an oak door is a great option. It can make the minimalist theme stand out without overpowering any of the actual interior design, and it can also amp it up by being a statement piece around which the interior design is centered.

  1. More light

Newer house designs rely largely on windows and doors to let in light, which is why a stark number of people have begun to prefer doors with glass panels and large windows in their houses. Most such doors that are made of lighter material do not last as long and may not prove to be a good investment, but a solid oak door gives a sturdy foundation for the glass panel and allows a lot of light in without damaging the integrity of the door frame or the door itself.

  1. Versatility

Oak doors are the kind of doors that can be used in various different ways, be it in a garden shed, a room, or the entrance of your home. This versatility can help your interior design become even more chic and modern. For a solid investment and also to tie in the wood theme all over your house, invest in oak doors for all your rooms and your entrances.

Oak doors have never gone out of style and, most definitely, never will. There are a lot of changing home décor trends that can often become rather heavy on the pocket if you try to keep up with them, but an oak door will never let you down. Customize it, paint it fresh, add glass panels, or go entirely classic; an oak door is a piece of your house that will transform your interior design in ways you could never have imagined.

2018 John Lewis Christmas Advert #EltonJohnLewis

When I woke up this morning, the first thing I thought was, ‘the 2018 John Lewis Christmas advert is out today!’. I know, it’s a bit sad to get so excited about adverts, but I LOVE Christmas and look forward to the Christmas adverts from the various companies every year, with John Lewis being the most important one for me.

I even sat and watched the whole of the X-Factor last Saturday just in case the advert was on!

We’ve had to wait four days longer than last year to see the advert and in my opinion, it really wasn’t worth the wait.

2018 John Lewis Christmas Advert

I have to say, I mean no disrespect to Elton John, he’s a national treasure, but I think the advert is rubbish.
The John Lewis Christmas advert, along with the Coco-Cola truck advert usually marks the start of Christmas for me and this year it’s left me feeling disappointed and not at all Christmassy.

I felt much the same way as I did after Buster The Boxer.

Oh well, let’s hope next years advert is better. Meanwhile, we’ve still got Kevin The Carrot to make us smile this year!
