Creative Doors and Windows Ideas

Hand Carved Door Frame

Doors and windows say as much about you as a homeowner as any other element of your home. Your doors and windows are like a reflection of your personality as a homeowner.

Just as you carefully select your clothing and accessories to reflect your unique style, you should also put thought into choosing the right doors and windows for your home. After all, they play a big role in the overall look and feel of your space.

As a fan, Suzanne Martin found to her dismay, community regulations can sometimes get in the way of creativity, but for those who can do more than a dream, these ideas are for you…

Today’s laser cutting systems make it possible to create any window or door design, especially if your pockets are deep enough. With the ability to cut through almost any material with precision, these systems have opened up a world of possibilities for architects and homebuilders alike.

Whether you’re looking for a traditional design or something more modern, a laser cutting system can make it happen. If you’re on a budget, pre-loved is the way to go as it never ceases to amaze us what some people throw out as ‘rubbish’.

Solid timber doors and windows, lead lights, French doors… we’ve seen them all on the heap.

What door and window ideas would you go for?

Barn Doors

One way to add a touch of sophistication to your home is to install unique doors, like barn doors. They can add a rustic charm to any home and can make a big impact, especially if they’re used in place of traditional doors.

Not only do they add an element of style to your home, but they’re also functional and can help save space.

Window Painting

If you live in a home without windows or have walls that prevent you from installing windows, there are other ways to bring light into your space. Consider installing window-designed frames or paintings on your walls. This can brighten up your space and make it feel more open and welcoming.


Heavily carved doors can add a lot of personality to your home. If you’re looking for a way to make your house stand out, consider adding some carved doors.

Carved doors can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, stone, or metal. You can also choose from a variety of designs, so you can find a door that fits your personal style.


An unusual-shaped door can be a great conversation starter. These doors can add character and style to your home, and they’re sure to be a hit with your guests.

If you’re looking for a way to add a glimmer of elegance to your home, consider installing curved doors. They are designed to curve inwards at the top or sideways, creating an elegant and eye-catching look.

Not only does the curve design add a touch of class to your home, but it can also help to improve its energy efficiency.
