Hardware is a fun and trendy way to provide style and allure. Much like hinges and pulls, which adorn kitchen cabinets, it can add spark to interior design, the addition of strap hinges and lift handles gives curb appeal to the exterior design. These often dark colored accessories with a wrought iron look are a throw-back to carriage houses—a rising trend in today’s demand for the old world look. And with a cost of ten to twenty dollars per piece, and a do-it-yourself installation, it is a quick and simple way to get old world charm without an out-of-this-world price tag.
Door Shapes - Nowhere is it written that a door must be just a wooden rectangle. Wooden doors can be rounded at the top - double doors as well as a single door. They can have a three-quarter arch or they can be double arch panel doors. There are all shapes and sizes of doors from which to choose when you begin to look for new custom exterior doors. Also included in the choices for wooden doors are segment top and Gothic top, true radius top and a raked top to mention a few.
Mahogany has a straight grain that is virtually free of knots. The color varies from a light to a dark brown with red highlights. This type of wood holds up well to the outside elements and is often used on boats. Red Oak is another option for wooden doors and is a fine choice. The grain patterns on red oak vary and the wood will accept most stains. The grain will pick up the stain and creates a wonderful look for an entry door. The color can vary from light to golden combined with a darker grain.
