1 2 3 No more boring interior doors From practical functions like sound reduction and capitalizing on space, to the creative functions with material and customization options, interior doors can be used to upgrade any space JELD-WEN How do your interior doors help residential remodelers? Interior door replacement has untapped potential as an inte- rior design upgrade. With a variety of material and nearly limitless number of designs to choose from, new interior doors can make a huge differ- ence throughout an entire home. They can also help deliver other benefits homeowners desire, such as sound-reduction quali- ties and enhancing natural light by incorporating glass panels. Whether the preferred style is contemporary, craftsman or tra- ditional, there are interior door designs and options to match any taste or remodeling need. What's the next advance- ment in the interior door market? Clean, flat panel door designs are booming as they can work with either historic or modern home remodels. The use of glass is big; homeowners appreciate the fact that glass allows for nat- ural light, and they can still have privacy by choosing different styles of decorative glass. The biggest trend is variety — there are so many styles and options to choose from, especially among our carved interior door line which allows for custom- ization at an affordable price.

With Iron Doors Unlimited, remodelers offer customers a true point of difference, which means being more affordable than they imagined. The sheer mass, hand-forged scrollwork, hand-finishing and decorative glass that opens independently of a door is a one-of-a-kind statement. More than 120 types of in-stock doors are available for immediate shipment. Our custom program is not bound by the manufacturing limits of traditional interior doors, but has countless affordable pos- sibilities for size, configuration and personalizing options. What's the next advance- ment in the interior door market? In an era of mass design and production, homeowners crave the ability to creatively custom- ize and express their distinctive personality. They are tired of the same old standard options for interior doors. Iron doors offer customizing options for wine cellars, pantries and newer trends, such as pub doors. Iron doors organically add interest, while also offering unprecedent- ed options for value, quality, durability and customization, helping capitalize on the "wow factor" of renovation.

Many homeowners love the look and feel of wood, so using quality wood doors in a remodel can be like adding a piece of fine furniture. Remodelers can use wood doors to enliven any space from bedrooms to bathrooms. Simpson even offers "theme" doors with etched glass pan- els for media rooms, laundry rooms, pantries and wine cel- lars, which add a creative design touch to rooms that are usually hidden away. What's the next advance- ment in the interior door market? Just as we are seeing with exte- rior doors, "personalization" of interior doors is getting hot. People enjoy having one-of-a- kind products styled to their own tastes — whether it's custom ten- nis shoes or the color and design of their smartphone. The same is true with doors. Wood doors provide remodelers a simple way to further style their proj- ects to the customer's desires.
