At Alcove one of our most popular services is restoring Period Doors.
If you have beautiful period doors in your property that have been abused over the years with layers of paint, varnish or even stickers (!) then it makes a huge difference to the look of your home to give them some TLC! Beautifully restored period doors really add to the charm of your home, they can make your home seem more polished, or be the finishing touch to your period home.
We dip the doors to remove the layers of paint, then sand and wax them.
To make the process as fuss-free as possible we collect the doors, restore them and then deliver and re-hang them for you.
We also have a stock of period doors, so if any of the doors in your home are not original and you'd like them all to match then give us a call or pop into our shop.
In the photo below we have dipped a customer's existing seven doors and sourced a matching eighth door for them that matches the others. We are just about to sand and wax them all before they are delivered and re-hung.
It really is amazing the transformation once they have been restored. Of course we're biased, but we just prefer their period beauty over modern doors any day!
