Period front doors throughout the ages, from Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian through to more modern styles, are notable for their elegant panel and moulding designs which give a door depth, shape and character, and are a key feature to reproduce when replacing original period front doors.
Period front door panels
Front door panels are typically rectangular or square, solid timber or glazed sections that are held in place by the stiles and rails of a front door. Timber panels are either flat or ‘raised and fielded’, which give a more 3-dimensional look to the panels.
In Georgian times, the front door was a key feature of most townhouses, positioned in the centre of a property’s façade, and was often a large, solid timber door with 6 solid timber panels.
