The doors and windows for each storefront shown above are designed in very different ways, with very unique styles, but all help to communicate a brand message. Did you know that you don’t have to shop the world for that perfect window or door? Look for locally manufactured building materials that can help you achieve the look you need.
In part 6 of our series featuring locally manufactured materials we’re going to take a look at windows and doors. Your front door is the gateway to your home or business so it should say a little bit about who you are when it welcomes visitors. Windows provide the users of your space with that ever-important connection to the outdoors all the while enticing your customers to come inside. Door hardware is the finishing touch that allows you to highlight your personal style or business brand. Did you know that all of these important elements: windows, doors and hardware, could be sourced through local manufacturers? It’s true, and we’ll tell you about a few companies making these components right here in the Okanagan.
