The idea of having custom doors made is a great one. It’s always wonderful to have something made according your style and design. But there are a few things that you need consider when you proceed with such a venture.
You need to consider the custom door manufacturer’s capabilities. Firstly you should find out what the limitations are with creating custom doors. Ask them if they can create any design for you. Or if you have a design can they make it for you? Alternatively, if you have a design in mind, can they first design it digitally so that you can preview it before it is made? You should have some kind of a visual before the custom door is manufactured.
Think about the design of your home. Is it a more traditional style or is it a modern house? Many older homes are designed in an antique or traditional style. Although you might love the more modern designed doors, it will stand out in a traditional home, and not in a good way. It is advisable to have a door designed that merges the traditional style with a modern twist. That way, it will fit into the style of the home yet you’ll still have the modern element included. If you have a modern house, then you could design a pivot door in any modern way. Usually geometric shapes and straight lines are associated with modern designs. Glass also adds a modern element to a front door. Also the large pivot doors make any entrance in to a modern home grand.
A door has two sides, obviously. So you need to decide whether both sides will have the same pattern. Or will they differ? In other words, will the inside part have a pattern in keeping with the décor in the house and the outside pattern be more relevant to the outside design of the house?
Furthermore, check the size of your doorway so that you can give the custom door manufacturers the correct measurements for the entry way. Generally most homes have standard sized doorways but if you have a larger entry way, it is advisable to get the measurements correct first. Rather check the size ten times and cut once than check the size one time and cut ten times.
Before you have custom doors made, ensure that you do your homework first to ensure that you get the door of your dreams.
