Any architectural feature can be an art form, and the door needs a special mention. More and more homeowners are beginning to use this transitional piece as a tool for better curb appeal. With the right design, you can turn your doors into an artistic expression to enhance your comfort and define the space.
Before you schedule your doors installation, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City shares some interesting tips to add more flare to your replacement door:
Play With GrillesGrilles lend character to plain glass. They can form lines, shapes and complicated visual concepts to make your doors distinctive and enchanting. Traditional grille designs can create visual harmony, but unique ones can imprint iconic symbols on the glass.
We do standard configurations, but we can craft grilles beyond traditional patterns, such as colonial, prairie and farmhouse. Whether you want your doors to sport a famous crest or an original design, we can make it happen.
Frame Mother Nature’s Best AngleIs your wall aperture strategically facing a scenic perspective of your surrounding landscape? Use your exterior glazed doors to capture it in style. Pay attention to the frame differences of door models, though. Classic French doors are made with traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery and stile and rail construction, while contemporary ones feature narrow framing for maximum glass area.
Mesh with Other Wood ElementsMake your doors be at one with your existing woodwork. Using the same wood and applying the same exact stain will up the warmth of your space and neatly tie everything together. This will make the interior of your doors an extension of your cabinetry, floor or walls.
Make the Wall MoveNothing creates a seamless indoor-outdoor connection better than full-height, sliding doors. They serve as a transparent barrier when closed, and make every evidence of the wall disappear when open. If the sliding track can elegantly hide within the floor, you can blur the boundary between inside and out.
