Home Improvement Projects: Often-Overlooked Interior Doors
When it comes to a home, doors are probably one of its most overlooked architectural elements. People are painting rooms, replacing carpeting or buy new furniture, but they hardly ever replace doors or think much about doors. That's peculiar as doors can change or enhance the look of a room or a home. That goes both for interior and exterior doors. How often have you formed your opinion of a home just by looking at its front door? And how often do we judge the overall quality of a home by what king of interior doors there are? Fact is that the design, color and finish of doors can make a huge difference in appearance, comfort and also security of a home.
Another great way to customize the look and feel of doors is through door knows, handles levers and even hinges. There is a wide selection of designs and materials, including brass, bronze, porcelain, steel or even wrought steel. Here again, some designs convey elegance and style whereas others go for a playful or modern look. Make sure there is a good match between your selection of doors and door hardware. While high quality hardware can greatly improve the appearance of inexpensive doors, using cheap hardware on expensive doors is hardly ever a good idea.
There is, of course, also a huge difference between interior doors, which primarily provide separation and privacy, and exterior doors, which are part of the exterior design of a home and also provide protection and security. Exterior and entry doors are among the most important architectural feature of our homes, and the right design, material, size and color can really make a statement.
The bottom line is this: doors are important parts of our homes. Cheap, basic doors may serve their purpose, but there's a wealth of interior and exterior door options that can really improve a home and set it apart. Don't limit yourself to what's in stock at the local hardware store. Check with a company that specializes on doors on selections, styles, installation and anything else you want to know.
