Customers are sometimes surprised when the house builder and designer Marnie Oursler start talking about the bedroom doors.
They expect to discuss issues such as windows, wall colors, and where a built-in library can best fit. However, many of Oursler's customers did not think that creatively designed interior doors could add personality, improve natural light flow, and serve as flexible divisions to break an open floor plan or to connect two rooms together.
Ler For a long time, I use my doors to add character to the houses, süre says Oursler, a Delaware-based group of Big Beach Boards on the DIY Network. “It's very important to mix doors all over the house, in he says, kap it's easy.“
Oursler and two other interior design specialists – architect, Tamara Gorodetzky, co-founder of GTM Architects in Washington, DC, and Caleb Anderson, co-founder of New York-based Drake / Anderson interior doors.
Design features as doors
The bedroom and bathroom doors can be easily changed for a different style and you don't have to deal with traditional wood.
Or If you look at the magazines right now, çok says Gorodetzky, vermek people are doing creative things like using too much steel at their doorstep to give them an industrial look. “
Another option is to cover the doors with paint, flooring or other coatings.
Anderson updated the traditional wooden gates with a metallic finish at the entrance of a customer, transforming the çift very traditional and stuffy double double door “into something conspicuous. Or You walked right up to the apartment and it had this unique finish, “he says. “It was quite spectacular.“
For another customer, there was a series of swinging doors made of leather and made of leather. . You don't have to be afraid to do anything brave or something different, And says Anderson.
Gorodetzky admits, yap I absolutely love making a property gate in a place where people will see it, Gor he says. In If you have an office next to your foyer, it's a good opportunity to build a French door. “
Doors as optional wall
By adding a sliding barn door or a series of revolving doors, you can open an open space without adding something as permanent as the wall.
”For a long time, this open, open, we have destroyed this wall, And says Anderson. “I've seen so many people returning to the ability to close a dining room. It also adds the formality. Bu
You can have comfortable, rustic barn doors with sliding doors, heavy equipment, or something elegant and formal. Whichever style you choose, Oursler says fazla it adds a lot of characters, is on or off Hangi.
For a customer, the company of Gorodetzky took on the task of creating an enormous, dramatic work of art made of steel and plaster, and then hung it as a sliding door that could close a section of their home.
Get more light
Most of us have solid wooden doors in our house. But all of these designers say that clean or frozen glass doors for privacy and beauty are a great way to help stream natural light from a home.
For bedroom doors leading to a corridor, consider illuminating the area by passing through those with frosted glass windows.
In large main baths or windowless small dusted rooms with a separate enclosure for the toilet, the frosted glass door brings natural light and the enclosed space looks a little smaller.
Anderson worked with a client who wanted a separate dining room and kitchen. The challenge was: Although the dining area was abundant, the kitchen lacked natural light. So instead of putting up a wall, Anderson added internal sections and doors with textured, mottled glass. He says,, It is a soft and natural solution that allows natural light to enter, ış he says.
What to avoid?
Anderson, if you are repairing or covering doors, consider the durability. . If you put it in a wall covering, you sometimes have to be careful that you don't just pick a material that will be peeled off or frayed, “he says. ”The doors move and work, so everything you do with them should be able to withstand it.“
Gorodetzky also says he will not use much contrast unless you really have style.
Ini I don't really like the idea of making different doors in every room, “he says. You can be happier by mixing one or two more dramatic doors in a carefully chosen, consistent style all over your home.
Finally, if you buy a painted old door, notice that the paints used before 1978 are probably in it. You can buy a lead-based paint cleaning kit, oursler or sand the old paint in a well-ventilated area.
