The type of door can also make a world of difference. The basic types are hinged, sliding, folding and revolving types. The hinged type is when the door is hinged on one side allowing it to swing open in only one direction. The improvement on this type is the swinging type. This type is made in such a way that though it is hinged on only one side it can swing in both directions opening inwards and outwards. The sliding type is when the panels are mounted on overhead and floor tracks. These panels can slide over one another in both directions - right and left. These are used in situation of space constraints but their regular use popularity has also increased phenomenally. The folding type is when the two or more panels are joined together by hinges. These hinges allow the panels to fold over each other in whichever direction you want. Revolving type is the one where the panel is attached at the centre with means of an axis and the far ends of the panel can be pushed, which causes the panel to pivot about the axis. This type is not generally used in homes as it takes up too much space but it is quite ubiquitous in commercial establishments.
For the contemporary home the more sophisticated feeling of Shoji sliding exterior wood doors might be right for you. Although these doors stretch back hundreds of years across Japan and Asia, they are relatively new in the west, and can be used to create a very popular and chic east-meets-west vibe for your back yard, patio, or garden. These exterior wood doors are perfect for pool houses, garden sheds, or verandas that you want to turn from an eye-sore into a trendy feature. Additionally it's a natural complement for koi-ponds or relaxing small gardens. As with all exterior wooden doors the range of stains and varnishes you can use lets this work without any color scheme you could want, from a warm and earthy wood tone to a very dark black formal shine. Although this look is currently very popular it's also been around in the west just long enough you don't need to worry about it going out of style any time soon.
The basic thing to bear in mind when you are searching for door designs is that your door should be in harmony with the overall style and form of your entire house. If the blend is improper, then however attractive you try and make your door, it will still stand out in an inappropriate manner in relation to the rest of your home. Take a simple example. If your entire house has a classical look to it and you go in for a door design which is more contemporary in look, then however beautiful the door may be in itself, it would look odd in relation to your home. Similar cases of non-blending of the door with the overall house could be use of contrasting colors or materials. Hence, your objective should be to ensure that your door complements the overall aesthetic look of your home and uplifts it in a positive manner.
