One of the best ways to add value and a new aesthetic to the home is through door design. When you’re able to find and install the right doors, this helps to create a consistent style throughout your home’s design. For many homeowners in North Carolina, custom doors are the best way to go.
But there are almost as many styles of doors available as there are homeowners. That’s why Talbert Building Supply works closely with customers to help design entryway, exterior, or interior doors in their space. Here are 10 of our favorite ideas and inspirations.
1. Entryway Ideas
What better way to enjoy a scenic view than having beautiful doors that allow you to enjoy it from both the inside and outside of your home? These Marvin bi-fold doors open to a luxurious patio area that overlooks a beautiful lake. When open, these doors don’t distract from the view as their minimalist glass and folding design blend in with the rest of the surroundings. Even when shut, these doors offer a perfect, unobstructed view of the naturalistic scenery, creating an elegant doorway from the inside sanctuary to the outdoor oasis.
2. Mixing Exterior Materials
You can add personality and texture to an exterior design by using multiple materials. This custom door design from Dallas Millwork includes wrought iron details and the warmth of wood panels. The wood here works with the irregular surface of stone masonry that makes up the exterior wall of the home.
3. Adding Signature Style
Many homeowners have pulled ideas from traditional theme designs to add character to contemporary homes. When classic designs meet farmhouse flair, you get a magnificent door design like this one from Therma-Tru. It’s a balanced look that feels inviting and fresh, with just the right amount of design tradition.
4. Simple + Subtle Elegance
For homeowners who want a more contemporary look, simple and modern works best. This exterior door from DSA Doors uses clean lines, dark Accoya timber, and a straight handle design that brings balance to the entryway.
5. A Pivot Towards More Modern Interiors
Want something modern for your home? Marvin’s bi-fold door designs give homeowners a look that’s modern yet unforgettable, whether you’re looking for an interior door or an impressive entryway.
Bi-fold designs give homeowners an easy-to-operate door that offers a wide opening, creating a highly accessible and visually appealing space. Besides wider entryways and hallways, installing easy-to-use doors also makes the home more accessible to homeowners who use mobility aids or need help getting around. This door design shows how modern beauty can meet modern convenience — an unbeatable duo!
6. An Element of Warmth
For homeowners who want a personal touch to their home’s exterior, doors are the perfect opportunity to add a unique accent to the design. This modern, luxurious home needed a touch of warmth, and this Dallas Millwork door was a perfect choice. The dark wood effortlessly complements the black trim and concrete siding while adding a welcoming, personal element that will impress for years to come.
7. Perfect Design Details
Don’t be afraid to add detail, especially to front door designs. This door from Tucker includes an understated, unexpected trim detail underneath the triptych of glass panels. This addition is a pleasant surprise in the entryway, which offers an example of symmetry and simple elegance in a front door design.
8. Interior Design Impact
This sliding interior door from North State Millwork uses the rustic appeal of farmhouse style and is especially trendy (and functional) in family homes. Using a sliding door to separate living spaces gives homeowners additional ways to access privacy — or open up the space for entertaining more family and friends.
9. Natural Wood Looks
Wood doors, like the one above from Tucker, give homeowners a blank palette to work with when it comes to customizing doors. Wood can be installed as-is, stained, or painted to complement the look of any space. “Wood can bring warmth, depth, and an intimate feel that creates a serene scene,” says Lindya Galloway for Architectural Digest.
10. Personal Touches
For kitchen spaces, the door design can help to organize the space in a fun and functional way. We love the custom pantry door from Reeb in this home, which helps to personalize the kitchen space and keep things looking tidy.
