Think of all the spaces that doors cover inside your home: rooms, pantries, closets, utility areas, etc. They occupy too much real estate on your walls to overlook them or just treat them as purely functional pieces. Custom interior doors can meet your practical requirements (especially if your spaces are too challenging for standard doors) and add beauty and charm to your home. Do you want to give your guests a clue what’s behind the door? Perhaps you need to conceal a mess discreetly and elegantly? Whatever you want, there is a custom solution for you. Take a look at some of the unique custom doors that CustomMade artisans have designed for a variety of indoor spaces.
A custom sliding door is a practical and dramatic choice if you have limited clearance for a swinging door and a wonderful way to showcase wood with great character. The beautiful grain and color of this knotty alder barn door by Riverwoods Mill complements the furniture and hardwood flooring in these rooms, while adding a subdued but distinctive rustic tone to the area.
Reclaimed wood’s unique physical characteristics and backstories can help your custom interior doors make a statement. This California wine country home has all recycled wine vat doors, made by Pacific Millworks from rescued redwood, including the sealed door and sidelight unit for the wine room shown here. That deep, dark stain comes from the redwood’s years of contact with wine and it’s simply mouthwatering.
A wood carving on a custom interior door can be both decorative and descriptive. This one-of-a-kind Alaskan yellow cedar sauna door by Huisman Concepts sports a provocative but tasteful small carving that identifies the room s function, too.
A custom door can also be designed to hide whatever’s behind it. You can even have the entire door disguised and doing double-duty as shelving for books or knick-knacks. This hidden bookcase door by Fiorenza Custom Woodworking conceals a packed closet and creates a beautiful, functional space for storage and display.
Do you have an otherwise attractive room that’s marred by an unfortunately located structure? Access to your HVAC system, water heater, and other utilities has to be preserved, but with a little custom attention, you won’t even know they’re there. The Western Craftsman built this short redwood six-panel door, which leads to the home’s furnace and under-stair storage space, as well as that redwood and poplar column, which conceals a jack post. These two pieces now blend in seamlessly with the rest of this basement.
Whatever style you want for your custom interior doors – French, glass, wood, sliding, and more you can find a CustomMade artisan near you who is ready to tackle your project.
