Modern Touches For Your Door
When decorating and designing a space, the secret in making a firm look is concentrating on the details. Ultimately, one of the most disregarded components in a room is the door trim—but when given the appropriate consideration, carefully chosen trim can be the detail that keeps the room together. Moreover, this is particularly true when endeavoring a modern design, where minimalism and smooth lines characterize the style.
In general, conventional door trim comprises of rosettes (square details in the upper corners, frequently with a round indentation in the middle), plinth blocks, and the casing themselves—the real trim work around the door that generally contains beautiful sections and scores. However, this degree of embellishment is conflicting with the straightforwardness of modern style, which you can best exemplify with a smooth casing that extended completely to the floor or are angled to meet the baseboard.
Usually, door casings are between 2 1/4 – 2 1/2 inches wide on the two sides or above the door. (Although in some craftsman style homes, you may see that the casing on top of the door is more extensive than that on either side.) However, numerous modern designers are presently settling on door trim that is more extensive or narrower than 2 1/2 inches on all sides.
On the other hand, wider door trim makes a more grandiose appearance, and you can best use it on entryway doors, around open arches, or in rooms with high ceilings. In contrast, incredibly narrow door frames function well around doors that have glass panels, in which the spotlight will typically be on the view through the glass. Finally, thin trim is likewise a decent decision in more seasoned homes with lower ceilings, as it gives the appearance of more space between the ceiling and top of the door.
