“Choose Well, Live Well.”
The Difference A Door Makes.
January 10, 2016
Doors primarily serve under the “functional” category of interior design. Other components that serve under the “functional” category include kitchen sinks and ceiling fans. Although all these items’ primary services are to work “functionally,” it’s also important to acknowledge that they can provide some decorative or aesthetic purposes to enhance the sanctuary of your home.
It may sound obvious, but it is important to choose a door that complements your property and suits your style.
If you live in a contemporary home, flush doors provide a sleek, minimal finish. To create more depth, you might consider a panelled door.
Here is a list of doors and their makers, that offer inspiration and insight into the difference a door makes.
