Are you planning a kitchen extension but need some inspiration to get your project started? Then, you’re in the right place! There’s no doubt steel-framed glazing has become one of the most sought-after features in a renovation, right? I mean, steel-framed doors like the evert-popular ones by Crittall are everywhere, and what’s not to love?
From adding an industrial feeling to your space and allowing in plenty of natural light to cleverly acting as separating walls,
steel-framed doors are a great choice to take your kitchen extension to the next level.
They’re a great option if you’re looking to create that cool, industrial look, but steel-framed glazing work so well in period properties too – mimicking the look of traditional sash windows beautifully.
