There are a lot of ways you can design your home. There are so many styles to choose from, you can mix and match and do anything you like to make it the place of your dreams. One place that deserves the right amount of attention is the doors. Sometimes people tend to gloss over them in their plans, thinking that perhaps they’ll just visit a home supply store and pick up a ready-made door. But that doesn’t give you any control over how high the quality is or just how it looks once it is in your home. When you work with a supplier that specializes in doors and other home accents, you can be involved in all of the details.
Some of those details can include panel and sticking profiles. Many people aren’t used to this degree of control, so the concept of panel and sticking profiles may seem foreign to them. Door panels are the large flat components of the door. They are the wider areas that you see. There are various thicknesses that a panel can be, anywhere from ¾ of an inch to 1-¾ of an inch. Sticking is the decorative profile located on the edge of the vertical and horizontal frames of the door. This is also where they will meet up with the panel. You can find a variety of sticking profiles that showcase different shapes and styles.
The combination of the panel and sticking profile can also be accentuated even further with the addition of applied moulding. It is completely optional, but can really add a little something extra if you are interested in a more unique or ornate door. You can also use it to craft a decorative pattern on the door.
When examining the different combinations that are available to you, be sure to ask questions about not only the designs, but also the construction and the wood type. Some companies don’t use high quality wood. In fact, some suppliers use low quality products that have thin veneers glued on or bladder-pressed over nothing more than a plywood core. A good company will use solid wood of superior quality and pay close attention to thickness and construction in order to give you the best. Then you will have a good door that is more resistant to warping and cracking.
Take charge of your door needs in every respect, and soon you’ll have every door exactly the way you want it.
