Doors are an essential part to every home’s design. Not only do they provide privacy, but they also make a house a home. From sliding doors, French doors, to various wood doors it can be hard to find the perfect match for your home. Remember that doors are the entry point to every room in your home, so make sure they match your design and style.
Here are a few of Modernize’s favorite ideas that can help you create a room centered around the perfect door for that particular space.
While sliding glass doors are very common in beach communities leading out to a balcony, that isn’t the only place they can be utilized to their full potential. When properly installed, they create an eye-catching element to your home decor and room space.
Sliding doors are easy to open and close, and also provide a lot of natural light in your home. They can actually make a house and a room feel bigger, since the sliding effect creates a larger atmosphere. Try sliding doors in a smaller bathroom to give the illusion of a larger space.
Wood sliding doors, like those that you can find at Cherry Tree Designs, can match your current design theme, which brings the space together for a more cohesive look.
A Room with a View
If you have a kitchen or living room space with a picturesque view, try using a door that complements this space. The last thing you want to do is choose an interior or exterior door that blocks your beautiful view.
Sliding doors, French doors, or double doors will be the best option to maximize your view. Many people opt for floor to ceiling windows, but replacing these windows with a door can provide a larger viewing space and another entry into your home. Incorporating a door into this space will allows for a connection between your home and the outdoors.
Having a larger door opening not only provides a better view, but it makes a small space look larger. The right door can make your backyard or back porch an extension of your home. A large glass door can make this possible, creating a serene outdoor space connected to your living space.
A closet is the portion of a home that most owners like hidden. Whether you have a messy or organized closet space, you want to pick the right closet door that is functional and complements your style.
A traditional hinged door is perfect if you have a traditional design style and only want to conceal your closet. If you like a modern design style, try using a sliding door. Sliding doors come in a variety of styles, from frosted and translucent glass to mirrored or raised panels. If you want to get really creative with your room design, try using alternative doors. Or even try printed curtains over a doorway to create a style that is perfect for you.
