Crittall doors are everywhere at the moment. They are a beautiful alternative to bi-folds to lead out onto a garden as not only do they allow light and views in to a room they also add architectural and design interest, which bi-folds can lack. However, and this is a big drawback, Crittall is mega expensive – for most of us there is just no chance!
The good news is that there is a way of creating the look and feel of Crittall without spending a fortune. Replacing any type of external door costs a lot so what you can try is to make internal doors look like Crittall.
If you are super lucky you may well already have glazed internal doors like these beauties and just by painting the timber a dark colour you can easily create a Crittall look…
If you are installing standard sized internal doors you can choose a glazed option and paint them off black for a Crittall feel. This will look great and also have the massive added benefit of allowing light to flow through from one room to another. These doors do not have to be expensive at all but will have a big impact on a room…
And if you have an existing glazed door but it is dated and as far from Crittall as you can get you can do an easy DIY job like Becca has done. What a brilliant difference!
If your DIY skills are more advanced you can even create faux Crittall internal doors like Frances is currently doing in her home. I think these will look fab!
What do you think? It’s definitely worth considering if you are making changes or renovating at home, especially if you have any dark spaces or rooms that need some borrowed light.
