When homeowners are embarking on a custom renovation, they often aren’t prepared for the vast number of decisions that will have to be made from beginning to end. This includes things you probably are already envisioning like cabinet styles, light fixtures, and flooring, but there are countless other small decisions that are equally important. One area that often gets overlooked is the use of custom doors to help improve the functionality and versatility of your home. In this blog, our team of general contractors will give you a few ideas related to door selection that will hopefully help your home renovation go as smoothly as possible.
Below are just a few of the different types of doors we install on a regular basis for our clients. While this is not an exhaustive list, it should give you a few ideas when it comes to selecting doors whether it’s for a home renovation project or a bathroom renovation project where space is at a premium.
If you have an area where space is tight, pocket doors can be a great way to maximize space while still giving you a unique and stylish look. In fact, if you’re doing a bathroom renovation, you could add a pocket door along with a full length mirror to give you additional versatility in an otherwise small bathroom.
If you’re looking to add a bit of style to any home renovation project, consider adding barn doors on rollers. These doors offer space savings as well as a chance to add a design element to your home remodel project. Choose a stained wood door, or a brightly painted door to create a focal element in any room.
If you’re looking to add a window and a door in a tight space, you may want to look into a dutch door. These doors are split horizontally and feature a window on the top portion that can be swung out to let in some air on a nice, spring day.
If you’re really looking for the ultimate in custom door solutions, why not look into a hidden door? You can conceal a door so that it looks like a set of bookshelves, or maybe even a large piece of art, to help maximize the versatility of any room.
If you’re looking to maximize your existing square footage, creative door options may be a way to achieve less with more in terms of effectively utilizing space within your home.
