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.

Don’t forget that pivot doors and sliding doors can be made completely flat and warp free with the best materials on the market.  We also recommend doors that are made in the USA strictly from materials that are sourced 100% from the USA. Only the best doors come with the signature 50 Year Warp Free Guaranteed, which gives you the peace of mind you need when deciding exactly which doors to go with.

1. Sliding Doors

Sliding doors are extremely efficient and elegant when initially installed. Compromise can come not long after installation due to warping, bending or twisting. To prevent the sliding doors from warping, doors can be manufactured from heavy materials, like steel, which is not high precision (due to welding), certainly not Eco-friendly and the excess weight causes problems for the hardware due to added stress because of the added weight.

Pocket doors are not unlike sliding doors, except for the fact that they are retracted or hidden within a recess. This makes it even more important that your pocket door remain straight and true without warping. A warped pocket door is pretty much useless and the cost of maintenance on a pocket door is increased because the mechanisms are buried deep within a wall (or other structure material) increasing the expense of repairs over time.

Bi fold doors consist of two (or more) door panels connected by hinges, so that they can fold together flatly. Expensive heavy duty piano hinges can be used to maintain the integrity of the bi fold door panel if the individual panels are narrow. When using larger sized door panels, even full length hinges cannot keep the door from warping.

4. Oversized Doors

Large oversize sliding hangar doors moder doors for saleLarge oversized door represent the biggest challenge for architects, contractors, designers and millworks. End users embrace high ticket prices associated with huge doors but also desire a high level of performance when investing in such a project. The truth is, not long after installation (especially if the door is over 7 ft. tall) the door fails to secure correctly due to warping. Unfortunately, this affects all types of doors, such as wood doors, fiberglass or FRP doors, MDF and LVL doors, even metal doors; like aluminum doors and steel doors.

5. Wood Panel Doors

Bell Hardware architectural wood doors modern doors for saleWood panel doors attract deficiencies based on the natural nature of the wood itself. Wood is a living resource that naturally acclimates to its surroundings according to temperature, moisture and stress. While natural wood is extremely attractive and highly sought after, left to its own devices, it will fail. People who love wood have come to accept its limitations as a trade off for its beauty and elegance in wood doors. Beautiful wood doors demand regular maintenance to combat regular warping issues.

French doors are wood doors or wood panel doors (that could be manufactured in a stile and rail design) that hosts a large portion that is cut out for window lites offering an extended view of the landscape or other visual features that may exist on the other side of the door. In this instance, heavy glass may be strong enough to keep the wood edges straight for a period of time, but results in a heavy door. And stile and rail design is not very secure where the joints are connected.

Whether for security purposes, visual impact or other reasons, exterior steel doors can resist warping, especially if they are finely honed solid steel. More common in contemporary steel doors are solid steel sheets with interior bracing that is of welded construction. This is not very efficient, does not make a highly precision door, though it does eliminate much of the weight of a solid steel door. It stands to reason, if an interior weld is broken due to impact or heavy use, the door will fail.

Growing in popularity – especially amongst high end homes and commercial installations – pivot doors are the most sought after contemporary architectural design in entry doors today, though this elegant fashion statement does come at a price.

Again, though a modern barn door could be made of most any type of flat plank material, wood is most common and carries the caveats associated with natural wood.

Carriage doors are the most high end garage doors in use today.

Though they are still very popular amongst the most expensive homes in the USA.
