The Latest, Cutting Edge Door Styles

By Ronald Holmes

 

Homeowners and professionals alike have been faced with the ultimate task of selecting the exact door for the purpose of matching their design elements while also providing the appropriate functionality.  It is often thought that the two factors are mutually exclusive. That’s true in some case, but there are well-coveted exceptions involving some of the latest cutting edge door designs.

 

Many architects have turned to double doors, French doors, half doors, barn doors, hinged doors, carriage doors, trap doors, revolving doors, and cabinet doors in solving pretty much every issue thinkable.  Often, there is no single door style that will work in every single situation. Even Donald Trump requires different door styles to solve his problems.

Builders who use conventional doors often experience a number of issues with warping, cracking, breaking, and peeling.  Problems around the hinges, broken hinges, damaged door frames, and destruction of your precious molding and finish work are proven aspects of conventional door usage, because hinge style doors experience uneven weight distribution, more weight resting solely on one side of the door.

 

 

That is why, here at Modern Doors for Sale, we have determined that pivot doors and sliding doors work best in every situation.  Between sliding doors and pivot doors you can overcome virtually any kind of door problem.

 

Sliding doors are excellent because they don’t swing out into work or living areas like conventional doors do.  Thus, they save precious space compared to many door styles. Pocket doors are also great, because they slide into a secret compartment in the wall, so they are invisible and out of the way when not in use.

Pivot doors can also be a fantastic solution, because they have much better weight distribution compared to hinged doors.  They lend themselves very well to glass front doors and back doors. They also allow for much simpler hardware designs that can be constructed with more stability and elegance than that of conventional doors.

Commercial and high end residential property owners are increasingly looking for designs that add that extra flair to their structures, which is why some are requesting large sliding doors, huge sliding doors, large pivot doors, and huge pivot doors to their arsenals.  Hidden doors and secret doors have also been rising in popularity among the high end segment of the market. Many high profile customers, like Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Drake, and Kanye West have opted to use both sliding doors and pivot doors with very good reason.  There is no question, you can achieve doors that are more visually appealing in areas where smooth operation is one of the most important factors.

Wood pivot doors have presented many problems associated with the nature of the raw material. The primary challenge associated with a wood pivot door is that wood warps. In order for a wood pivot door to be functional, it must remain warp-free as door warping will compromise the door seal. The other issue that is challenging is that of weight. Wood (as well as other materials) used in pivot door making is quite heavy requiring expensive hardware and extra structural enhancements to support the heavier pivot door.

 

Large Pivot Door

Large pivot doors are faced with both the issues of the wood pivot door to the Nth degree. Big pivot doors are going to have more weight due to the sheer size, and all oversize pivot doors will warp regardless of the building material used, especially if they are exposed – as in exterior pivot doors – or stand between two separate areas that may have varying temperature or moisture content causing the pivot door to fail and require ongoing maintenance over the life of the pivot door.

Based in the pivot door’s weight, you may require more expensive pivot door hardware, i.e., heavy duty door hinges. There are many types of door hinges made for a wide variety of pivot door styles. The most popular is the center pivot hinge or center hung pivot hinge in the pivot hardware arena.

This greatly affects the overall cost of the project because more than half the cost could be attributed to pivot hinge heavy duty especially if it is an industrial or commercial project. Even more expensive is the commercial door pivot hinge that is designed for heavy use when integrating with commercial door pivots. If you create a lighter weight door you can avoid the added expense of heavy duty pivot door hardware.
