Have you ever thought of interior doors as anything more than an entrance-way or barrier? Doors take up a substantial amount of the wall and welcome you into the next room. As an integral part of the wall’s composition, they should be recognized for their design potential. Whether you are doing a total overhaul of an interior room in your house, or simply looking to change the feel, a stylish new door can have a dynamic effect.
Unlike a painting on the wall or a rug decorating the floor, a door is a semi-permanent fixture in your home that serves an important function. When considering the design of your doors, you are thinking in terms of architectural detail. You can also experiment in creative ways to enhance the usable design aspects of your door. A design driven door enhances the intended feel of a room by complementing other aspects around it.
One of our favorite options are classic French doors. They offer antiquated charm, and provide a luxurious and welcoming entrance. Additionally, they allow an abundance of sunlight to pass through rooms. French doors work well in separating rooms that extend from hallways and central passages, like studies, parlors, and dining rooms.
If you enjoy incorporating rustic elements in comfortable settings, you may want to consider a barn style door. Sliding barn doors help maximizes space, (they don’t swing in or out of a room), and also add unique character to your home. They will have a distinctive effect in the transformation of any room.
Shaker Style Doors
For the homeowners that prefer a more contemporary setting, we recommend implementing shaker style doors. The simplicity of the square indented panels and traditional woodwork create a minimalist feel representative of modern design. Whether one paneled or multi-paneled, they offer a clean design with subtle beauty. Check out these shaker doors on houzz.
