Who needs an average door when you can do a statement door? I have loved working in that element on several designs in the past year or two and now I'm a bit obsessed. It's a chance to really add a custom look to the space and really be unique.
Take a look at just what I mean in this custom entry created by one of my favorite carpenters, Jason Wolfe. This heavy, flat panel door was scored with a one inch groove filled with gold leaf in a modern geometric pattern. I went one step further and added brass tie backs as knobs. It's a show stopper on the way to the even bigger showstopper new master bathroom.
Take a look at a variety of door styles I pulled from my files . . . upholstered, distressed wood, mirror, shagreen, art covered, hidden shiplap, and my all time favorite - black metal !
I love the mix of the grey washed wood with the mesh.. perfect for the rustic chic look !
Now I'm getting over the barn door thing a bit - but love this mix of the barn door and the distress old "french" look.
The hidden shiplap door - we did this at our office... so cool.
I would kill to have my closet all tripped out with doors - such a clean look.
Or cover up all the files, and junk behind there !
That's exactly what I did on this install... in 2015 - and these are on sliders.
Be creative with the details.
Back to the gorgeous wood . . .
If I were to ever build - I would incorporate a huge walk in pantry - with glass and wood - or metal doors !
Ruard Veltman design this amazing set up upholstered doors.
How about a little art covered doors !!
These last two doors are upholstered. I installed these in 2016. We took down the original and created new frames with upholstered "pleather" and nail headed inserts.
And this has a matching on the opposite wall. One is a pantry - one goes to the basement - you'd never know !
Create something special !!!
Happy Friday !!
