Doors

December 26, 2010

Here’s another development in our house — new interior doors. We initially didn’t plan to replace the original (and quite beautiful) interior doors that dated back to the 1920s. However, because there was so much new plastering put during renovation works, and so many walls had to be straightened, keeping the old doors was not an option any more. The new doors had to be made to measure, and they are much taller than the standard height used in modern buildings.

 

I personally don’t very much like the look of wooden doors, so we decided to go for the kind that can be easily painted. We tried to replicate the style of the original doors as much as we could, in order to preserve the beautiful look and feel of the 20s. I think we’ve succeeded!

This is one of the original doors that had to be replaced

That's the same little corridor that features in the previous photo. The (still unpainted) new door has a similar style to the old one.
