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. Traditional style garage doors can also have a modern twist such as replica carriage doors which have a period-look but can work well with new constructions and older houses.

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. A great solution that allows the flexibility of both going in and out of the kitchen when serving meals, and creating an intimate space to sit down for dinner, is adding a pocket door.

How to Fit All the Essentials to Your New Door

by Guest on Nov 1, 2011
