Deciding on Doors

Add character with a trim

Give a home a colonial, craftsmen, or traditional look depending on the type of door trim installed around the doors.

Choose the color of the front door

With the front door being the first thing a visitor sees, choose a bold color to make a statement or something neutral to blend in.

Determine the hardware

How a door will be used determines what hardware is needed. For example, a front door requires something that locks while the kitchen doesn’t.

A non-traditional door

Consider adding a barn door as a functional option that also adds character and personality to your home.

Solutions for small spaces

A pocket door can save space in a home by sliding into the wall instead of obstructing the room on either side.

I have built in bookcases beside my fireplace and wanted to add doors to the bottom section. Using barn door hardware (that I made myself), I knew this would be a easy DIY. You could also do this project to a free standing bookcase.
