This is part 4 of a 6 part series of replacing the exterior doors in my home. Be sure to read all the other door posts as well as posts on renovating our home.
Entry Door Laundry Room
This tiny room is small yet mighty. It is the entrance from our garage into our home as well as the laundry room. I wrote out all my pent up angry feelings with this room along with the before pictures (if you missed it, go check it out here).To sum it all up, the door just had to shut tight and it would be a major improvement on the garage entry door that we had before.
Replacing Entry Doors
Replacing entry doors (and all the other exterior doors) is a project we decided to hire a professional for. There are a ton of projects that I am willing to take on myself, or insist my husband learns how to do, but sometimes you need to know when to call in a pro. Exterior doors are one of those times. You can see in the installation pictures – it was a pretty hefty job.
I am probably the only person who sees this door, stares at it while sorting laundry, and because of that I feel like its all mine. Its just a simple, yet elegant door but I love it. If you look closely you can see the black threshold on the new door. Also the inner frame is black – the piece of trim that touches the door itself when closed. Some finishing projects we ended up with included having to patch a bit of the grout on the tile floors where it met the threshold, and replacing the casings around the doors. We just put the original casings back up, but the plan is to update them to something with a thicker profile when we do the rest of the house.
Lets get a side by side view of the before and after:
