Doors, Doors, Double Doors

We have both 6-panel and 3-panel doors at The Glade.I chose 6-panel doors for “regular doorways”. Our contractor ordered 2 new six-panel doors: one for the basement and one for the master bedroom. They were delivered already in their frame with the ranch style trim already applied.

Then I said in my email: ”If you’re talking about the pantry and mudroom closet I like something that goes with the Shaker-style kitchen cabinets. Ours are Homestead by Shiloh inset doors.” (see 2nd attached photo)

I emailed the contractor this picture of our cabinet door style and asked him to get something like it for the double closet doors on the mudroom closet and the pantry.

Then I finished with: “I trust your good taste will prevail.”

Yes, I’m a trusting and gutsy girl. You must realize our actual kitchen cabinets have not yet been delivered and they will not be brown. I just wanted our contractor to see the style so the closets would look more like cabinets and less like traditional closets.

This is what was delivered. (Remember neither he nor I like bi-fold nor sliding doors on a closet.)

The closet doors are perfect. I love them.

We’re still waiting for the pantry doors but I think he made a great choice and I have confidence that his “good taste will prevail.”

A new 6-panel door. The mudroom closet is needs doors and trim. We will need to decide on a paint color for these doors. The pantry will get double doors similar to thee mudroom closet.

Small and awkward

It's small, only 10X12, and awkward because there are three doorways to it.
It was pretty painful to cook in initially, but I have just completed a minor upgrade. The new appliances I bought:
Conserve Vestfrost fridge, at a very tall, slim and svelte 24X24X78.
Gave away my Sears range with the WIMPY burners and got a new Maytag Gemini instead (has two ovens and hottest burner is 16,000 BTUs).
Cut away a disasterous cabinet and installed a new Bosche dishwasher. Quiteness was my main concern.
Got rid of the pathetically shollow (4") double sink with low faucet (how is that for a recipe for a dysfunctional dishwashing area?) and replaced with a stainless 10" deep Moen, with a fun Franke Papillion faucet (though in retrospect, I wish the faucet were even more...
