What is one of the most commonly overlooked and under-appreciated aspects of home design, both internal and external? Doors! You would probably be amazed to learn just how many people will go to great lengths to renovate their homes from top to bottom, yet somehow neglect to consider the multitude of different varieties of doors they could utilize to complete their home’s style profile. Today we would like to show you eight doors that are anything but ordinary, and we hope that these selections will help you to realize and begin to explore the untapped potential you may have within your own home.
1. Magnolia Interior Door (Doormerica)
This interior door features a single pane of leaf-patterned glass, which maintains a high level of privacy while allowing light to shine through. Perfect for a home office or any room in your home with limited access to natural light, this door can add sophistication and style without sacrificing any functional convenience.
2. Knotty Alder Traditional Exterior Door (Simpson Door Company)
Knotty Alder doors offer a rustic charm through their dark tone and tight knots. This exterior door, in particular, is more reserved than decorative – yet it has a clear sense of style that can add a lot to your entryway’s appeal right away.
3. Chalkboard Interior Panel Door (Simpson Door Company)
Taking convenience and functionality to the next level is this interior Chalkboard Panel door which doubles as a magnetic surface. Perfect for writing down to-do lists and recipes, this would go great as a kitchen or pantry door, or even in the kids’ playroom.
4. Full Bloom Exterior Door (Simpson Door Company)
Looking for something a little more modern to greet your guests as they arrive at your entryway? Try Full Bloom, by the Simpson Door Company. The abstract stained glass panel speaks for itself, and while this door certainly won’t pair well with every home, if you have a modern décor theme in place this piece could really tie everything together.
5. Custom Wood All Panel Interior Door (Jeld-Wen)
Turn a regular doorway into a gateway with regal double doors. Knotty alder, pictured, is a great choice, but keep in mind that you can get these doors in almost any wood species and finish. Perfect for a master bedroom, yet applicable to many different areas of your home, double doors are a simple yet effective way to impress your guests and make an impression.
6. Good Luck Exterior Double Doors (Jeld-Wen)
Inspired by the “good luck” symbol of crossing fingers, these entryway doors by Jeld-Wen are guaranteed to stand out. Made out of cherry and alder woods, if you are constantly in search of new outlets to express yourself through your home then this is an excellent option to consider.
7. Tru-Defense Patio Doors (Therma-Tru)
Available in a wide variety of styles and wood species, the Therma-Tru Tru-Defense patio door series is a leader in weather resistance and energy efficiency. Complete with weatherstrips, bottom door sweeps, and profiled sills, these fiberglass doors are attractive, versatile, and incredibly reliable.
8. Knotty Alder Arch Top Interior Door (Simpson Door Company)
Arched top doors take a little extra work to install, but the results really speak for themselves. No matter the species or style, arched top doors tend to stand out while creating an “old world” feel.
