A perfect door for your home takes careful consideration of many different variables. Apart from the designs, you would also have to factor in the functionality of your door.

When Choosing Main Door

HDB, Condo and Landed homes in Singapore have different requirements.

Metal gates are common in HDB main doors and that is because the gate functions as a safety barrier.

However, you will not commonly see metal gates in Condo or Landed main doors.

Every home needs a main door.

A popular main door choice is melamine, laminate and cocobolo. They are water, heat and scratches resistant and can also be made into fire and non-fire rated doors.

It is recommended for you to opt for the fire-rated door, as main doors act as a fire safety barrier.

Timber doors typically have a fire resistance of 0.5 or 1 hour, this is a choice for you as homeowners to decide which one you prefer when purchasing your doors.

There are also other options such as nyatoh ply and solid nyatoh for those who prefer a natural wood look for their homes.

Main doors also have single leaf and double leaf doors.

Bedroom Doors

Many homeowners prefer to have the same colour or design for their bedroom and main doors to match the theme of their house.

Common bedroom doors include melamine, cocobolo and laminate, which can be used to match the aesthetics of your main door.

You can also choose between a hollow or solid core door.

Solid core doors are pricier than hollow core doors as they have better sound insulation and are more durable.

If you are on a budget, you can also go for classic doors. They are lighter in weight and can be painted to your desired colour.

Bathroom Doors Options

It is important for one to pick their bathroom doors carefully as they are especially prone to water and termites damages due to the moisture of the environment.

We recommend the Water and Termite-proof Door (WTP Door).

As the name suggests, it is both water and termite-proof, making it the perfect door bathroom or bedroom doors so that you would not have to face problems of damaged door and frame and having to replace them after a few years of usage.

In addition, it also possesses sound reduction quality as it is composited with PU foam which helps to absorb sound.

If you are facing water damage and termites infestation currently, we would strongly recommend you to replace your door with the new WTP Door.

Another bathroom door option is bifold door. Bifold doors are great if you experience space constraint and would like to maximise the space of your room.
