When it comes to the doors in your home, the beauty is in the details. Incorporating stylish doors as part of your overall decor is a brilliant move which will increase the value, aesthetic appeal and functionality of your home. There are many different door styles to choose from.
Before deciding which type of door to install in each room, however, consider the dimensions and flow of the space.
Choosing the Right Door Type
These doors slide on a track and are great space-savers. Sliding doors are commonly used for closets and patios. For indoor use, the finish may be solid or mirrored to give the illusion of space.
Pocket doors slip into a recessed wall cavity when not in use. Since they take up no space in the room, they are ideal for tight spaces, such as small bathrooms or pantries. They make great hallway closets as well.
These stylish doors slide along a rail mounted above the door frame. No space is required for the door to swing open, although room is needed on either side of the doorway. This type of door is perfect for oddly sized openings, and works well with an industrial, rustic or modern design.
Two single doors connected in one doorway and designed to open at the same time are called French doors, or double doors. These typically have a transparent or opaque glass panel, allowing light to flow between rooms while providing privacy and noise reduction. They are often designed with ornate detail and are used most frequently in master bedroom entrances, front entrances, or backyards.
Retractable Screen Doors
Retractable screen doors are a stylish addition to any patio door or French doors and are available in 5 housing colors. When not in use, these doors retract into the metal housing and blends in with your door frame, allowing them to seamlessly integrate into the aesthetics of your home. All Seasons’ double screen door also come with the option of a Handle Lock System for ease of use.
