FAQs

What is a Georgian door?

A Georgian door is characterised by its timeless design featuring six panels, showcasing a blend of sophistication and charm. Traditionally made from solid wood, some variations towards the later part of the era incorporated a touch of modernity by introducing glass into the upper two panels.

What is the difference between Victorian and Georgian doors?

Unlike the six-panel configuration of Georgian doors, Victorian doors typically have four panels, presenting a simpler and more understated look. Additionally, Victorian front doors complement a broader range of colors, especially those with richer tones, given the deeper hues commonly found in Victorian brickwork. While classic colors like black and red work well with Victorian doors, the overall design and colour palette sets them apart from their Georgian counterparts.

What are the characteristics of a Georgian door?

Characterised by elegance and simplicity, Georgian doors boast a distinctive design comprised of six sections. A common embellishment includes a straightforward semi-circular fanlight or ‘top light’ situated above the door, serving to introduce additional natural light to the entrance area.

What colour were Georgian front doors?

Georgian front doors historically sported neutral tones, predominantly black or white. However, contemporary interpretations of Georgian style doors offer a diverse array of colour choices, spanning from subtle pastel hues to vibrant primary shades.

How do I identify a Georgian house?

To identify a Georgian house, you can look for architectural features prevalent during the period spanning 1714 to the 1830s. Recognised for its understated elegance, Georgian architecture is characterised by uniform proportions and symmetry. This classic era significantly influenced British architecture and is frequently replicated in new constructions. Georgian houses typically exhibit a construction mix of brick and stone, incorporate sash windows and, in later examples, may include stucco finishes.
