Trustile: Designing Doors To Elevate Your Next Project




Doors are one of the most visible design features in any home

Just as any other design feature that goes into your new home or renovation, doors should be thoughtfully selected to reflect your home’s unique style and character. Consider the important, but often overlooked, role doors play in interior design:

  • Every room has a door, unlike other design features that only impact one room, like granite countertops, appliances and plumbing fixtures
  • Doors are touched dozens of times each day and the quality of a door is known immediately upon using it
  • Doors perform an important function in addition to aesthetic enhancement, offering security, privacy, noise reduction and room separation

Visualize the difference a well-designed door makes

All too often, a flush or six panel door is the default choice even in high end custom homes that include an otherwise impressive selection of amenities and upgrades. Doors have been overly value engineered, diminishing their structural and design integrity. However, the visual impact of high-quality, architectural door is dramatic.


Take a glimpse at the striking difference a well-designed door makes in the look and feel of this Mid-Century Modern room.  The horizontal wood grain combined with the strong bold lines of the reveal elevates the modern aesthetic of the room and add that finishing authentic touch to this home.

Here’s another example of how adding the right door can dramatically change the look of a room.

Don’t cheapen the look of those expensive cabinets with a standard door.  With TruStile, choose from 21 wood species or specify a custom option to match the wood of your cabinets to the pantry door.  Further elevate the space by substituting glass in the top panel for a more open space.  At TruStile, your design options are limitless!
