Distinctive Doors was originally established in 1993 under the name of Door Shed, where the founders not only sold quality doors but also manufactured bespoke timber products such as windows and stairs. They also manufactured stained glass and double glazed units.
Having had a background in the building industry, working on building sites in jobs ranging from labourers, plasterers to joiners, the knowledge they brought with them to the company was invaluable because they knew not only how to manufacture, but what other trades were required as a part of the complete process.
The company now has a highly skilled team with specific expertise in sales, warehousing, logistics and handling and manufacturing.
Door supplies throughout the UK
Now we are proud to be one of the leading UK suppliers of interior and exterior doors. Our extensive range of high-quality products includes frames and fittings which are available in both contemporary and traditional designs, with something to suit every style and budget.
A high-quality entrance is extremely important for two reasons. Firstly there is the need for security, but it also projects a certain image, adding ’curb appeal’. A well-chosen entrance will add sophistication to your home, giving an excellent first impression. Our exterior units are beautifully crafted from oak, in both classic and modern styles. To add an individual touch, we have a number of glazed panel options, such as leaded, beveled or satin glass, and for complete privacy, we also offer solid options.
An attractive interior door can instantly add a touch of style to any room, completely changing its appearance. Available in oak, all are suitable for any decor, whether traditional or contemporary. For a simple yet elegant look, allowing the grain of the wood to shine through, a coat of varnish is the ideal choice, or alternatively, you can use paint or stain to coordinate with your room. Where privacy is needed, such as the entrance to a bedroom or bathroom, we have a variety of solid units in a multitude of beautiful designs. If you would like light to flow from room to room, an interior glazed unit is an ideal solution. Toughened safety glass is used as standard, making them suitable for a home with small children. For added safety, consider installing a fire door. Available in a number of styles, featuring paneling, moulding and glazed options, they can be supplied to match our non-fire products, allowing you to maintain a particular style throughout your home.
Outdoor living is hugely popular nowadays and what better way to allow easy access from the interior of your home to your garden than with a fabulous patio set? Allowing natural sunlight to flood in, a bi-fold patio set will really brighten up your home, creating a feeling of extra space. This is one area where we pride ourselves on being highly competitive. Manufactured from toughened glass, these units are extremely efficient at heat retention in the colder months. All our glass products, whether interior or exterior, meet British safety standards.
If you have an open plan living space or very large room, an interior room divider is an effective way of separating it into two distinct areas, yet allowing you to open it up when necessary. Manufactured from top quality American white oak, our dividers feature stylish glass panels, making them an extremely attractive focal point when closed.
Once you have made your choice, you need to think about a suitable frame. We offer a number of high quality frames in oak and mahogany and will be able to make a particular recommendation based on the style that you purchase. As well as standard frames, we offer a customized service that is made to measure according to your specific requirements.
Enhance the look of your new units with top quality hardware. We have a huge variety of handles and knobs, ranging from contemporary chrome and stainless steel to traditional brass or antique black iron. While the internal hardware focuses mainly on aesthetics, security is paramount for exterior use. Our mortice locks, latches and security hinges will offer you the peace of mind that your home and its contents are safe 24 hours a day. As with all our products, we can advise you on the correct type of hardware to suit your particular needs.
