Arch topped French doors for 1930's home

Mumford & Wood provided arch topped French doors, a font door and casement window for a 1930’s family home in Esher, Surrey.

The Surrey home was built in the 1930s; its location dictating the preservation of the traditional frontage.

However, the rear of the house however has undergone a major transformation, with a contemporary extension suitable for the demands of a modern family, doubling the size of the existing reception space.

The clients have installed a new kitchen and dining area, with casual living and family space now stretches across the back of the house, with a trio of arch topped French doors providing the backdrop and outlook onto the secluded garden.

The French doors by Mumford & Wood were a deliberate choice by the family, “we avoided using bi-fold doors, as we felt this might make the space look too industrial and opted to add a design tweak to the French doors by softening their look with a curve.”

A new front door has also been added, along with a replacement, lead detailed casement window.

The client commented: “Some other companies were cheaper, but this was reflected in the quality of the product and the service. When spending this amount of money on a home project, you want it to be right – the doors really have the power to make or break the space.”

Also adding: “my workplace is in central London, so it was convenient to visit the Mumford & Wood product display at the Building Centre in Store Street and meet a member of the team to discuss our project.”
