Two of the most popular designs for home interior doors are Shaker and Mission doors. These two designs are very closely related and are both American in origin, but they are slightly different.
If you are familiar with Greek mythology, you may remember that Mount Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece, was also home to the Twelve Olympians. They were said to live in palaces that were beyond compare. We believe we have developed the Olympus entry door line in a style befitting of any of those palaces, and those who have added these beautiful doors to their homes certainly feel the same way.
Whether you home has an attached or detached garage, the actual space taken up by the entry doors on the garage is a large part of what people see from the street. With an attached garage, the doors are even more prominent, so getting the right match in style, color and type to suit the design of the home is very important.
Most people recognize French doors as an elegant and sophisticated option to the old style of sliding patio door. With the many different styles of these amazing doors, at Nick’s Building Supply we like to encourage our customers to consider these doors for more than just the patio.
Creating a welcoming oasis of relaxation in a bedroom is always a primary concern. When everything is designed to flow together and develop that sense of relaxation and harmony, this room becomes a great place to sit down and read a book, or perhaps watch a bit of television before calling it a night.
If you are like most people, you feel that using natural wood in the home, including the front and back entrance, gives the home a warm, classic and elegant look. It can also provide the perfect look for a ranch-style home, a wood cabin look, a rustic home design, or as a perfect addition to a brick or stone home.
When most people hear the term French doors, their first thought is about exterior doors, more specifically, patio doors. Historically, and even in current trendy designer homes, these doors are used as interior doors.
Often, people see larger entrances on homes as imposing, overwhelming and perhaps not in balance or harmony with the architectural design of the home. This certainly can be the case if the double doors are not correctly matched with the home, but this is more of an issue of selection rather than a negative on the actual use of larger entry spaces.
While most people would love to be able to design a dream home and have it custom-built to order, most of us live in homes built by a general contractor based on a set of standard design plans.
