Options In Rustic Doors At Nick’s Building Supply

 

One of the unique things you will find with our rustic doors is the variety of styles and possibilities they provide. While we call them rustic because they have a more handcrafted, Old World type of look, they are a perfect door option for a modern home, and they match beautifully with virtually any style of existing home.

The key in our doors of the rustic variety is the use of a particular wood. We choose knotty alder for many of these doors since the natural burls and knots in the wood create that hand-hewn look and give these doors a very solid look. This can be altered subtly with several different design options we offer, which are certainly worth considering before making a final choice.

Sidelights

One of the more uniquelooks in rustic doors is to add sidelights. If you have a door with a wrought-iron speakeasy, extending that same grill type of look over the sidelights is a great option.

You may want to select one sidelight, which creates an asymmetrical and intriguing look to the door. This is a great option for a smaller front entrance. Two sidelights are a very traditional and balanced look and make an entrance look much larger.

Options for the Door

Frosted glass, beveled glass or even the option to have ornate artisan glass in the sidelights keeps that Old World feel but adds a new twist. You may even want to consider a larger lite in the door itself, and then choose a rustic style of glass to carry through that rustic look.

Some of our most popular glass options for our rustic doors are the Flemish glass, which itself looks very antique. Chateau glass with small diamond shaped glass elements looks like a French villa, and it is a good option on either sidelights or throughout the main panel.

Round Topped Doors

Some of our most popular styles of rustic doors are those with a round top. These really are a classic style, and when we add the speakeasy and the clavos to the design it is amazing.

Clavos are the wrought-iron decorative nail heads that are used in the top and the bottom boards of each panel. They add a distinctive line to the door, and they are an excellent option to match with any of the traditional types of glass, including those with wrought iron features.
