Today’s doors are mass produced and available in several panel styles. Why not make a design statement and transform ordinary doors into elegant architectural elements. Here are some amazing doors to inspire you. From carved wood custom designs to embellishing doors with ornament and/or paint. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy.
Love this single panel design that matches the narrow panels. Common elements to achieving this look are several moldings, corner ornaments and a central feature. This design is more difficult because of the curve, but a simpler version can be achieved with Beaux-Artes panel kits such as the one shown below the inspiration picture.
Georgian Panel kit comes with 4 corners and 16′ of panel molding for $199. They are available in 20 finishes so all you have to do is use adhesive caulk to install it. Use it alone or in conjunction with other moldings, ornament and paint. Here it is shown as a wall panel with our damask canvas panel.
