WHAT TYPE OF DOOR WOULD YOU CHOOSE FOR INDUSTRIAL FARMHOUSE REMODEL?

SalvageArtisanJuly 26, 2012
Will soon be choosing a different door for our (almost completed) "industrial farmhouse" remodel. For some of you...maybe you've followed our progress on some of my other postings.

What kind of door do you think would look good as an awesome focal point / welcome? I'm trying to go with a simple very spa / serene / organic feel combined with rugged industrial and farmhouse feel. Lines and shapes can be a little modern but colors & textures more serene.

GIVE ME YOUR THOUGHTS!! =)

What a great project! Can't wait to see how it all finishes!

This door in this color has always been one of my favorite things on Houzz.

Emily - LOVE the color! Do you have any idea what BM color would be similar??

We painted the door that is there now a deep intense red but we're just not feeling it. It feels all wrong for the natural / serene vibe we want it to have.

What do you think about the partial glass door?? It seems a little country to me, maybe more appropriate for a side door rather than a front entry. But I'm open to other thoughts.

In the remodel, I'm trying to keep everything really vertical to emphasize height. Instead of wainscoting, for instance, I'll do the entire wall floor to ceiling in wide boards. And all outside doors onto the deck are full length glass french doors.

In our rural area people typically are more practical than artistic, so you see a lot of partial glass doors, covered up with nasty screen or storm doors.

Ah the joys of living in the country =)

Love your project and can appreciate the industrial farm house look you're going for. Door choices are so much easier when you're sticking to a traditional design, aren't they?!?
I might be going out on a limb, but I could see both of these styles on your house...kind of turning the traditional lines on their edge a bit....

I forgot to mention, as far as color...I liked the dark grey that you tried out, but I was thinking that dark charcoal (almost black) might be interesting if you were sticking to neutrals. If I were going to choose a stand-out color, I'd choose from the blue end of the spectrum like a pale aqua, turquoise or grey-lavender. Probably, just my own color prejudice because my eye is tuned to those colors for my own house right now! ;O)
