How Do Your House Numbers Look?

08 Jan
January 8, 2013

You should always remember that you’re a unique individual and you should take advantage of every chance you get to personalize your space. And that’s exactly what we had in mind when we decided to give our clients freedom of choice when it comes to their front doors: we’re offering a wide range of finishes (wood or colour) and we’re also providing a pretty large selection of models, but we’re also perfectly able to deliver a totally custom model.

But there’s even more you can do with something that you may have not even considered before – your house numbers. And there’s more variety than you give them credit when you start thinking about where you can place them: front door, front of the house, mailbox or even in a very unconventional setting. And then there are aspects such as: size, colour, material, font and other design specifics. In general terms, they should be easy to read even from a distance and this depends on size, colour (good contrast) and font (for example, too many swirls can look nice, but if it’s affecting the clarity, it’s not good).

Of course, one of the most popular choices is bras. It really stands out on darker shades and even on whites and it’s the perfect touch when the door comes with a bras doorknob and maybe a bras door knocker.

Ceramic ones can be a lovely touch and there’s no limit to how creative the surrounding design can be, especially if you decide to take things into your own hands and apply a pattern yourself. However, make sure the slates are big enough (and the numbers on them too) and keep in mind that the artistic strokes on the background should be integrated harmoniously in the general landscape and they should also not affect others’ ability to read the numbers.

Or maybe you’d like a plaque, since this can also be an interesting game of contrast between the plaque itself and the numbers on top (regarding both colour and material). You can go for a vintage look with wood or stay on the modern side with shiny metals.

And last, but not least – a new trend and a bold choice – illuminated house numbers. Believe it or not, that speck of bright light can reduce the risk of a break-in. But other than that, they’re sure to pop up (especially if you’re on a street with poor lighting) and you don’t even have to waste precious electricity, because there are solar-powered versions.

So, what do your house numbers look like? Have we stimulated your appetite towards creativity in this area?

A Titan Steel Security Door Keeps Burglars Out 01-05-2011

Actual attempted burglary image

Hello and welcome to my blog,

Burglars have been busy over the bank holiday weekend!

I’m pleased to say that we fitted, one of our Titan steel security doors to a premises in Park Royal , London nw10 a few years ago, after the occupier had a burglary. The door has been securing the premises ever since. But this bank holiday weekend as you can see by this dramatic picture it was attacked. They tried everything to gain entry but eventually they gave up which we have found is the normal scenario. If it was a wooden door and wooden frame. The outcome would have been totally different. instead of our customer contacting us today explaining he has had an attempted burglary it would have been, I’ve been burgled and all my belongings are gone. Now the situation for him is not so bad, the building insurance will replace the door on a like-for-like basis with no charge for our customer. We are now  manufacturing a new door.

And as a personal thought, we at ASL are delighted that these criminals completely wasted their time and effort and came away with absolutely nothing. once again the Titan steel door has proven its worth. Please visit this link  www.steelsecuritydoors.co.uk  and get one for yourself.
If you would like to leave any comments regarding my blog please do so.

Take care out there,

Amanda
