Being ceiling, cornice and wall specialists, you may wonder why we added door frames to our portfolio. Simply put, our metal door frame additions evolved from a passion and desire to offer home owners options to create that “wow” factor in their home.
Most homes throughout the world have architraves around their doors, and they are renowned for being decorative. Perth is one of the only places where plain metal door frames are installed into the brickwork when building. When you have a natural eye for design and you’ve been working with decorative, ornate mouldings for over 40 years, anything less seems very plain and uninviting. Imagine our horror when we arrived fresh from the Uk all those years ago, to find plain metal door frames everywhere!
Andrew made it his mission to change that and set about finding a solution to the problem. Because Andrew has a natural eye for detail, “thinks outside the box” and is a great problem solver, it was inevitable an alternative to plain metal door frames would be “born”. The result, after years of design and research are Authentic Additions very own door frame “additions”. Andrew thought of everything in those early years during the design stage. He designed them with a rebated edge that allows them to attach to the existing metal door frame AND had them manufactured in a lightweight PU making them far more pliable and easier to work with than timber. They are also fully waterproof too, making them an ideal choice to use in wet areas, and to tile up to.
The result of installing our door frame “additions” is truly transformational and we are very proud to be the original designers and owners of such an amazing product. The images displayed are a small handful of our work. Because we like to portray “the real us” most are taken straight after installation, before decorating.
