by Guest on Apr 14, 2010

The materials used for garage doors can complement a traditional home, for example if you live in a distinctive period style home such as a Tudor property, then timber garage doors would be the best design option.

Adding a Pocket Door to a Dining Room

by Guest on May 25, 2010

In most homes, the dining room and kitchen may be separated by a simple doorway, or a regular swinging door. While an open doorway allows easy access to and from the kitchen, a disadvantage is that kitchen grease and unwanted smells usually find their way into the dining area.

How to Fit All the Essentials to Your New Door

by Guest on Nov 1, 2011
