Back in 2013, Doug and his partner Yvonne came to our Harrogate showroom as they wanted to replace the internal doors at their beautiful home near Ripon with heavy oak doors.
They not only needed them to be solid but some needed to be double doors and some required glazing. They’d been looking around for some time but hadn’t managed to find anything that ticked all the boxes.
When they saw our double sided oak doors on display in the showroom, they knew they’d found what they wanted, and that, more importantly, they would complement their lovely home.
A keen Liverpool fan, Doug has a fabulous Games Room, complete with various pieces of football memorabilia, and he wanted the double oak doors leading into the room to be glazed. Along with the Games Room, the Living Room also required a pair of glazed, double doors. Doors into the Kitchen and Utility Room were also glazed, and the rest of the doors were solid.
Doug called into see us a few weeks ago to see if we could make him an oak sign for the infamous Games Room – THE RED ROOM! We don’t normally make oak signs but we couldn’t refuse Doug’s unusual request!
Duly made and painted in Liverpool FC red paint, Richard delivered the sign to Doug and took photo’s of the doors in situ.
Asking how Doug and Yvonne had found buying the double sided oak doors from Oak by Design he said:
‘We were re-modelling our house and wanted it to be bright, warm and impressive.
I’ve always liked doors to be substantial so we went to Oak by Design for their advice. It was a really straightforward experience because we were talking to people who knew their subject. The oak doors arrived when they were supposed to and the quality was as good as we’d dared to expect.
We haven’t had any issues with them at all apart from grandkids paw marks occasionally – they are as good as the day they were fitted.
Next time we buy oak doors I know where I’m going!’
