Standard frames are best suited to Victorian to Edwardian period properties. Large Victorian houses should generally go for a standard frame with a curved overhead window. Late Victorian to Edwardian properties should use the same frame but with a rectangular overhead window instead. We recommend adding the properties number to the overhead glass panel for the ‘full’ look.
1920s to 1930s properties are best suited with Flag Frames, which allows more light through. They should incorporate a single window or double side windows depending on the size of the hallway.
The most extravagant of all door ways is the Door Flag Frame with panels & overhead. This frame features windows all around and above, which makes for a superb entrance no matter the period. Our experience tells us you’ll return the cost by double, if not treble, by the time you sell.
If you are in need of a ‘Cill’ (also known as the Macclesfield step) please contact us.
Internal Door Casings
Fitting new internal door frames in your home allows you to add character to your doorways and avoid the hassle of stripping and re-treating your existing frames. Many sizes of frame are available, some of which incorporate vestibules, sidelights and fanlights. If you require a specific size which isn’t standard, then we also offer a number of made to measure frames to suit your unique situation.
Our door frames are available to purchase together with traditional stained glass or etched glass panels. We can copy any existing design you provide us with, or we can reproduce one with you which we have previously created. You can view our stained glass designs by clicking here. Some of these designs are available to view at our shop first hand, where you can really appreciate the quality of the work. Be sure to visit us if you can!
