Contemporary doors are characterized by clean lines, neutral colors, and simple designs. These doors can be made of a variety of materials, from metal to glass and wood.
If you’re looking for a modern interior door, consider sliding or pocket doors that retract into their own pockets. These are highly practical, especially for bathrooms and closets.
Sliding doors are one of the most popular contemporary door options.
Glass sliding doors are a great option for modern homes because they let in natural light and can help make your home look more spacious. They also improve air circulation and increase energy efficiency.
Sliding doors are a staple of Japanese homes and can be found in many western designs as well. They are an excellent choice for parents who want a safer way to keep an eye on their children and pets when they are outside.
Wood-framed doors are one of the most popular choices when it comes to contemporary doors. They offer a variety of benefits including warmth and an attractive appearance.
These frames are constructed of real wood and are designed to meet the higher fire ratings required by many building codes. This allows for a cost-effective solution with design flexibility that is unavailable using metal frames.
They can be used in all kinds of buildings from multi-family homes to assisted living facilities. They are especially suited for residential environments where the institutional appearance of hollow metal frames is undesirable.
JELD-WEN offers the widest selection of molded wood composite interior doors in the industry. These door designs simulate the look of solid wood and come in various styles to suit any home style.
A mirrored door is an innovative and useful design element for contemporary doors. It allows a space to be more spacious, while also reflecting light and making it seem brighter and more open.
This type of design element is especially popular in bedrooms. It reflects the warm modern accents of the room and makes it appear larger.
Mirrored doors are also a great option for closets and hallways. They are easy to keep clean, and they can help make a hallway look more spacious by reflecting light.
Another popular use for mirrored doors is in the bathroom, where they can serve as both a functional and decorative element. They can also be incorporated into other rooms in the home to create visual separation, such as the living room or dining area.
These doors can also be used to create a semi-permanent gym area in a multi-purpose basement or office. The mirrored panels can be slid closed to keep the area private for when the gym is not in use, while being reopened whenever a workout is needed.
Door skins are used in contemporary doors for a variety of reasons, including their aesthetic appeal. They are lightweight, durable, and easy to maintain. Moreover, they are eco-friendly and can withstand a variety of weather conditions.
Traditionally, the manufacturing of hollow core doors has involved using molded outer door skins over a hollow core of wood or another material. The resulting door is light-weight and provides an acceptable aesthetic appearance, although not as sharply detailed as a solid wood door.
A flush skin blank (a composite of wood and resin) having already been pressed into its compressed rectangular flat-skin shape is provided, pre-heated, moistened, sealed, and reformed in a platen inclusive mold press to result in reformed molded skins 7, 9.
Reformed molded skins 7 and 9 are then forwarded to forming station 71, where each reformed skin is adhesively secured to a door frame, preferably a wooden frame. Depending on the application of the door, a further moisture impervious barrier may be applied at station 73 to the exposed edges of the frame by edge banding or painting.
