You may not consciously think of a door, but we’re continuously evaluating whether we will walk into one door and out another. Countless analogies exist about doors. “Open a new door to your world.” “When one door closes another door opens.” Physical doors run the gamut, from the traditional to the more exclusive. Open this blog and step through your new door.
A customized door can truly reflect a personalized feeling, providing a unique ambience. Picture an artistic endeavor with maximized street appeal. A door with a lattice work is intricately designed and is different.
Although barn doors often evoke a more rustic feeling, it doesn’t always need to be the case. A barn door can serve as a formal entry point to a great room. Behind your barn door, think of incorporating a storage unit with shelves. A sliding barn door makes the space even more flexible. To explore your creative side, barn doors often use unconventional materials, such as old wood fence pickets, metal, and old windows.
According to Feng shui, a red front door is welcoming. During Colonial America days, a red door also signified a safe haven to passing travelers. The natural wood surrounding a red door also provides the perfect backdrop. Other bold color choices, such as teal, bright yellow, and tangy orange beckon visitors to your front door.
Upcycled and Recycled Doors

As My Fix-Up-Life showed, you can easily upcycle an old door into a kids’ storage bench with this step-by-step guide. Another novel use is to recycle the door into a swing.
