stained herringbone closet doors

We’ve all seen them. The closets that we use to hide things. It’s your washer and dryer surrounded by a growing mound of clothes. Your childrens toys that have multiplied and your hoping will be contained in the closet. Or perhaps it’s that slightly embarrassing collection of black velvet Elvis paintings you’ve collected over the years.

Maybe you actually use your closet to hold clothes. Did you recently go to great lengths and expense to organize your closet with an array of shelves, slots and drawers so that each and every shoe has it’s own little home?

Regardless of what your closet holds, the doors all seem look the same. Flimsy, hollow white things, mass produced in metal, finger jointed wood or some unknown plastic. They never seem to close properly either. “But hey! That’s all that they had at the building supply center”

That may be so, but that is no longer a reason to settle. Here at Kestrel we offer you something else: Real Doors, made from Real Wood, by Real People.

We hand build our pegged, mortise and tenon closet doors in a number of different designs that will compliment your unique style.

Is your room too dark? Choose a closet door style that allows for glass or mirrors. This will help reflect what light is in the room and brighten it up. Our designs feature louvers, panels and bead board in the lower portion of the door to help keep everything grounded.

Plantation Louvered doors are a great way to add charm. An added benefit is that they allow airflow between rooms. This can be very important if you have a heater or other appliances that require a specific amount of air flow to avoid burning out.

Go with an even larger louver blade and suddenly you have transformed your bedroom in to a tropical hideaway.

Looking for something more formal? Colonial raised panel doors might be more appropriate. Switching to a flat or recessed panel will give a simple, but still traditional look.

Bead board doors remind us of a beach house or a stately Victorian. Louvers over Tongue & Groove doors for that European flair. Or maybe you have your own special design in mind. Send us your PDFs or a scan of the cocktail napkin you used to scribble on that image that has been floating around in your head. Your home deserves your doors with your style, not someone elses.
