Aluminium doors have taken the Sydney market by storm. Their sleek aesthetic, impressive durability and strong material make it an excellent choice for any home or business owner. However, what happens when everyone has an aluminium door? It becomes difficult to stand out! While some home or business owners may not find this problematic, others who value the design individualism of their businesses and curb appeals of their homes are struggling to find ways to customise their doors while keeping the strength, durability and security that aluminium doors are so well-known for.

But wait, why are we using aluminium doors?

Though mentioned briefly, it’s worth reiterating that aluminium doors are by far the most practical and cost-effective choice for a business or home. There’s a reason that aluminium doors have become a common feature in business and homes–they are not just aesthetically pleasing but also, a savvy investment choice. Here are a few more details as to why aluminium doors have become such a popular choice.

  • Durable

    • Aluminium is extremely strong and lasts for decades.

  • Corrosion-resistant
    • Aluminium resists rust that can be caused by salty air at oceanside or beachside apartments/businesses.

  • Easy to maintain

5 ways to make your aluminium doors stand out

#1 Customise its colour and design

Customising your aluminium door’s colour and design is an extremely easy way to make you door stand out. Whether you’re a residential or business owner, you can benefit from adding a pop of colour, as opposed to the usual grey, white and black. For homeowners, colours like fire engine red, sage green and royal blue, can complement your home as well as make a statement.

For businesses, branding your aluminium door’s frames with your company’s colours can present a uniformed and professional look. This is a pleasant change from the usual cold and lifeless generic aluminium doors that many businesses use.

Additionally, for both residential and commercial owners, custom designs of aluminium doors can be done by A-Tech Australia. Aluminium is extremely flexible, making a custom-design a great way to set your home or business apart from the rest. Opt for different glass screen designs or textures on your door. Contact the A-Tech Australia if you’d like to collaborate on a custom-design.

#2 Frame your entrance

Framing your entrance with plants, flowers and trees can provide a beautiful and lush entrance for guests, clients or customers. Line the walkway to your entrance and then around the entrance and door to fill empty space with vibrant shrubs and flowers. Use evergreen trees and seasonal flowers to ensure that your entrance stays beautiful all year long. Depending on your home or business, you may also be able to use ivy arches. Whichever method you choose, you’ll be sure to grab the attention of anyone passing your home or business.

#3 Add light fixtures to your entrance

Illuminating your entrance won’t only make your aluminium door stand out in the day–but also the night! Here are a few options for adding light to your entrance:

  • create a runway with your light, 
  • utilise an electric lantern, 
  • add in step lights,
  • place a beautiful lamp near your door and,
  • set two wall lights on opposite sides, sandwiching the door.

These methods will not only guide your guests and attract customers to your business, but it will also make your door the focal point of your home’s exterior.

#4 For businesses – brand your door

Businesses should always brand their exteriors, especially in a city like Sydney that’s full of businesses vying for customers’ attention. Request that your aluminium frame is powder-coated with your company’s colours if it suits your building’s exterior. The second option is to request that your company logo or name be glazed/printed onto the glass screens. This is vital in not only making your business stand out and be recognised but, in attracting your potential customers as well as appearing professional and successful.
