Changing the doorway of your home is one of the fastest, relatively inexpensive reforms and results to accomplish a change in the aesthetics and functionality of your home.
The doorway, their frames, and moldings offer a good representation of the style chosen in each house: modern, minimalist, rustic, etc. And above, they allow you to improve the acoustic and thermal insulation, modify the distribution and save space, according to its characteristics.
Interesting Options To Decorate Your Doorway With
A great idea, is when houses with low light use transparent doors. If this option bothers you, you can also place glass only on the top cloth of the door (the fraction of the wall that adjoins the door at the top).
This will let the light pass without losing privacy, something ideal for bathrooms or bedrooms.
Doorway – Regarding The Materials
Today you can make yourself a door of almost any element, but if you want to contain your budget, there are a number of more common materials and explored by home and decoration firms, depending on each area of the door:
In The Structure:
You can use hollow doors, which are the simplest, cheap and least recommended if you are looking for robustness, safety, and sound insulation.
The interior is made of cardboard in the shape of a honeycomb. And if you’re curious to know how this form is, don’t worry: any strong blow will expose it to your eyes. As an advantage is its lightness, which will relieve the work of the hinges (usually weighing around 12 kilos when they are not solid).
The solid doors, however, are much more convenient due to many factors, being able to choose them from agglomerates or natural woods, which I strongly recommend (and good hinges can work without problems with usual weights of about 30 kilos).
You can also opt for water-repellent agglomerates or aluminum, but again, the wood is much more resistant, also to moisture.
Doorway – In The Finishes:
The details of a door are those that help you associate its aesthetics with that of the rest of the room. The flashing, for example, can be the same color as the sheet or have contrasts that are more similar to the colors of the walls or nearby accessories.
As said before, glass doors (in an infinite variety of qualities, thicknesses, resistances, and finishes) are a great option for places where privacy is not a must, to take advantage of natural light and share it between rooms.
The Exterior Decoration, The Finish Of Each Doorway
Whatever your manufacturing material, each door can be finished in various ways in the aesthetic section.
They can be covered with natural varnished wood veneer or painted (lacquered or varnished), to get the finish you want, depending on the rest of the decoration of the house.
Painting is the most traditional and basic method, but there are also modern finishes such as the finished foil, a sheet of paper that mimics any type of paint or material and is placed on the surface of your door.
