19 Sep Customizing Wooden Exterior Doors
To create a warm, inviting look for your home, add custom wooden exterior doors. It may seem like a simple investment, but this type of design can transform the look and feel of your home. It creates a beautiful first impression. While a large variety of wood doors are available for entryways to the home, take it one step further in choosing a look that’s truly customized to fit your needs.
The first step to take is to choose the material you desire. You’ll find some of the most impressive doors use knotty pine wood, knotty alder wood, or knotty cedar, though other options may be available as well. Look at the wood grain and the overall feel of the wood to choose the one right for your home.
Next, consider the exterior. In most cases, you’ll want to choose a finished door. In some situations, the use of an unfinished door can work, but this limits the overall lifespan of the door. A more rustic door will feature exotic woods and interesting combinations, but it can still be finished to look fantastic.
Think about the customization options you would like in the wooden exterior doors you choose. For example, you may want a unique shape or perhaps a specific size that’s not standard. You may want French doors instead of a standard door for your front entryway. And, of course, you may want beautiful hand carving on the door – whether it be an intricate carving or a simple design.
When it comes down to it, your wooden exterior doors reflect your personality and your home’s charm. Invest wisely in a look that is fitting and creates the right first impression.
