Hi there, hope this finds you doing well. It’s only Feb but I have a serious case of spring fever. The fact that we got into the 60’s more than a few days certainly has a lot to do with that. So strange! I do miss my snow day but I am giving up hope and looking ahead to spring. We are working with our architect to button up our renovation plans and are very pleased with how they are coming along. The renovation will involve taking the side of the kitchen and beyond down and adding a large new kitchen, slightly expanding current breakfast room, adding a family room, a pantry, a new laundry and mudroom and a smaller bedroom and bath plus a 3 car garage. We will also be redoing all bathrooms and reconfiguring our master area into a new master suite incorporating one of the bedrooms next to it. As I type this out, I realize that sounds like a lot. And I guess it is, I was convincing myself this will be a quick renovation but I have to be realistic about it too. One decision we made is to add some glass to the front door to bring in some more natural light. We LOVE the surround and wouldn’t dream of touching it. One option that a woodworker who we know told us is he could remove existing wood panels and replace with glass or put in an entirely new front door. I played around with some ideas and would love your take. So here is the door as is above. I realize it is very attractive and elegant but we are certain that we want to incorporate some glass into the door so here are some ideas. I am nearly sure I want to leave it white but curious if you could consider a color there or are like me, more inclined to keep it white(with some glass). So here are some ideas, not necessarily every last detail but just a rough idea/concepts. Did my best to photo shop them on, just squint and imagine with the proper door hardware to get an accurate idea:) UPDATE-Many of you are combining on removing the panels and replacing with glass thus to retain the same door. This is exactly what I wrote above as an option! ______________________________________ CHOICE 1 CHOICE 2 CHOICE 3 CHOICE 4 CHOICE 5 CHOICE 6 CHOICE 7 CHOICE 8 Which general door/concept do you like most? Which general door/concept do you like most? OUR DEAL OF THE DAY- CLICK HERE I am really curious to see which comes out on top. Remember, these are “concepts”not the exact door we will do but just ideas. Time to get my rusty wheels going again, as I will soon be faced with many many decisions. Thanks for stopping in, wishing everyone a wonderful day. Until next time…..
