If someone came up to you on the street and asked “What part of your home is the most important?”, what would you say? Obvious answers may be the roof, the siding, the heating system, clean water, the awesome 65” curved flat screen in the basement (tough to argue that one). All of them are good answers and certainly important. What about your doors though?
Unless you have ridiculous and odd daily tendencies, you use them every day in a variety of ways. Leaving your bedroom, entering the bathroom, leaving the bathroom, entering your bedroom, opening your closet, leaving your house, pulling the car out of the garage, entering your office…and that’s just in the morning. Now think about your daily routine if you didn’t have doors. The bedroom would be wide open, your bathroom adventures just become awkward, your strategically ‘organized’ closet would actually have to be organized and clean, your house would literally be an open door policy for weather, furry guests, random strangers and then your car and every piece of necessary junk in your garage would be first-come-first-serve for the morning jogger in the neighborhood.
Now, I’m not saying we have the solution for all of these issues. However, what I am saying is why not bring some attention to the often overlooked, door.
We have been able to do some very unique and custom doors for customers that wanted to highlight the door’s purpose and use it as a focal point to their space or design. Instead of walking up to the laundry area like you’re a pirate walking the plank, be excited about your laundry. These custom bypass doors are at the top of an open stairwell and utilize minimal wall space next to the opening.
If you have a business, restaurant or collaborative space that is usually open but every now and then needs to be closed off, sliding barn doors are a great way to add some character to your boring office while being functional.
Every door, like every piece RustiK gets to make, is used for its own purpose from salvaged and reclaimed materials. We are excited to have a few more door projects coming up that will be unique for the space they are going.
So, the next time you’re holding the door at WAWA for an uncomfortably long time for the guy on his phone not paying any attention; take a moment and appreciate that door and all it does…..or just let the door close and let the door send a message to the guy on his phone.
