Chic Little Laundry Room Door

by - Monday, October 01, 2012

Hooray for weekends. Was yours fun? We managed to finish our laundry room door! If you follow me on instagram, you would have seen this already but here's a look for everyone else...




We decided to use a full frosted glass door to help bring some light into the laundry room. The laundry room is not a big space (only 11' x 7' ) so the frosted door helps the room feel not so claustraphobic. As well, the laundry room door is adjacent to the bathroom door so its nice to differentiate one from the other. The decal is a custom order from etsy seller Elephannie (who also did the decals we have on our bathroom door and kitchen chalkboard).


HandyMan also installed some panel trim along the inside of the panel, where the glass meets the shaker frame. Its a small detail (and we've actually added trim to all our new shaker doors, back and front), but makes the door feel a little more special and finished. You can also see the door casing we installed. You can buy casing readymade at any big box store but if you're craving something a little different, try out your local lumber yard. We go to Central Fairbank Lumber for most of our trim. There are TONS of trim options and its fun to play around with all the samples (this photo shows maybe 1/10th of what they have on offer).


Casing can really make a door seem much more substantial, like with our broom closet. Its only 22" wide but with the casing it has a bigger presence.


We've also put in all the handles and door hinges. The little hits of black set the casing and shaker door off nicely. Love love love the lever style of the handles (they're so much easier to open than a round knob) and these ones come in a nice matte black finish. There's lots of other fun stuff going on behind this laundry room door, but I'll have to save that for another post :)




{Sidenote: I love my basement, but with the lack of natural light and various light shades of paint, its a big pain in the butt to try and get a decent photo with the correct white balance!}
