THE Gateway is considered the business card of the residence as it is the main door and it represents the style of the house. In addition to its basic function of bringing safety, we can work facade and demarcate the main access. With this, all care and attention are essential when choosing.
Inside the residence, the other doors have important functions, such as: separating rooms, allowing the entrance of natural light and helps to compose the decoration of the rooms.
When choosing a traditional door, you can add other elements to make it more imposing. For this, invest in a noble material, a different design, large dimensions and handles that stand out. This will depend on each style and also on the personality and taste of the residents.
Types of external doors and for house entrances
The entrance door is the one that draws the most attention in a residence, where the residents and all visitors will pass. Therefore, it is important that it is well thought out to fit and match in a harmonious way with the colors, materials and architecture of the facade. See below the main types of input ports:
Wooden doors are the most used for the entrance of residences. The wood has a high aesthetic value: available in several types, it can be worked and designed for different facade proposals. An important tip is to choose for solid woods, which have good durability and resistance to the outside environment.
Over time, wooden doors require maintenance. Without proper care, the humidity and termites can deteriorate the material and ruin the door. Check the condition of the varnish and the paint on the door, if applicable.
An intelligent solution to extend the length of the wooden door is to have a small cover at the entrance of the residence to protect the material from external conditions.
Aluminum or metal door
The aluminum door has some advantages over other materials, one of them is durability: aluminum does not rust and will not deteriorate easily. Another important factor is that aluminum is light: a door with this material tends not to overload and wear out the structure of the residence.
The last element is the aesthetic: the aluminum doors have elegant visual characteristics, they can have a bright color as white and also frosted colors, characteristics difficult to reproduce with wood, for example. Some of them, as in the example, can be combined with glass. There are also iron doors, which are more susceptible to rust and are hardly resistant to water exposure.
Glass doors for entry are used in specific cases, especially in corporate offices and commercial buildings. The use in homes is still limited, but may be a good choice for anyone who wants to dare to use the material.
One can also use a film or choose a glass with a more dull characteristic so as not to leave the interior of the residence transparent to the outside. Many models are combined with wood or with aluminum as a frame.
Single leaf door
The one-leaf door is one of the most common and traditional models sold in the market. They can be easily found in door shops and building materials stores. For this reason, they usually have standardized measures to suit most constructions.
The disadvantage of this model is merely aesthetic and visual - because they are popular, their finish may be simpler. However, its cost is much lower and the installation is practical and easy, without the need for door specialists.
Even with a simple model, we can use creativity and with the help of a decorator or architect, it is possible to add friezes, finishes, accessories and other items to the door.
Door Two Sheets
The two-leaf door provides a wider passageway for the entrance to the residence. This configuration proves useful in the change, when we want to pass with furniture and big appliances, besides assisting in the passage of wheelchairs. It is a more elegant and imposing solution to have in an entrance hall.
However, this solution is ideal for homes, where there is usually a larger space to be worked on. The current apartments already have the right measurements and often work with single-leaf doors.
There are several models available in the architecture market, but today the pivoting door has stood out because they are modern, elegant and imposing. One of its characteristics of this model is that it revolves around a vertical axis. Ideal for those who have large spans, both in width and height. They are commonly used in social bookings of houses.
Because they are large and heavy, their material needs to be robust, as well as their support shaft. These are tailor-made projects that certainly have a high cost.
One disadvantage of this model is the fence: it may not be complete because it needs space between the floor and the walls just to be able to rotate. In this case the sound and dust lock is not the same as a common door.

Doors for indoor use
The internal doors facilitate the locomotion between the environments, rooms and routes of the interior of the residence. Check out some models for this purpose:
Smooth door of a sheet
The smooth door of a sheet is the most standardized model and used, among all others, for indoor environments. This is a common choice and if you prefer to get away from the standard, you will have to opt for details like friezes, handles, door handles and trims. However, the use of this simple model may be interesting in environments that already have other prominent areas on the walls.
The shrimp ports are models used to divide two environments, especially on occasions where there is a lack of circulation space or for the installation of another type of door.
We consider that shrimp port is not very practical to open or close and its installation and maintenance depends on competent professionals. They demand customized materials such as latches, lugs and rails. Because it is a more complex type, its cost is obviously higher than a traditional sheet door. Take these factors into consideration before deciding on this model.
Door with drawings
The doors designed are differentiated because they have small details on its surface, an option that can stand out in interior design. It is important to pay attention to the shape of the drawings, we recommend choosing simpler and more subtle drawings. You can find them for sale in tailor-made stores or custom-made with dedicated professionals. In a special project, your cost may be higher. Size, weight, and other variables will directly interfere with the final cost.
The folding door bears this name because it refers to the musical instrument - the accordion. It is a model that doubles as it runs on the track. It is an option commonly used in kitchens or bathrooms, but fails in the matter of sound privacy. Choose plastic or PVC models for environments with humidity like laundry, kitchen or bathroom. This is definitely the cheapest port available.
The Venetian door may be ideal for indoor environments that require extra ventilation. Besides the doors of a leaf, there are also the folding ones, which release the space they occupy. They are used in balconies, balconies, pantries and in other rooms where this functionality is useful. There are many options for selling doors with shutters, especially the simplest ones. Foldable models are custom made.
Sliding doors have become a natural choice for many projects where space optimization is sought while maintaining the environment with modern and elegant attributes. With apartment floors and houses with limited spaces, they are an option to be worked using rails, embedded in walls and other applications.
In this case the ideal is to make a custom project, which requires custom fittings and fittings and great professionals for installation. This way it will last longer and will not need maintenance anytime soon. They are used mainly in the separation of rooms, rooms and bathrooms.
Door bang bang or saloon
The door with bang bang or saloon style is a model considered more old fashioned but still serves its functions and can please those who prefer this type of solution. If you've ever watched an American western movie, you'll certainly remember it. In this case there are no locks and to enter into another environment just push the two door leaves. It is used in commercial establishments such as bars or restaurants and can be used in residences in separating rooms with hallways from rooms or even toilets.
Essential Tips for Combining Doors with Environments
Here are some tips not to make a mistake in choosing for those who want to invest in different and creative models.
- For apartments in which the entrance door has a condo standard, one solution is to coat the inside with wood or other material of your choice.
- The glass can help in the design of the door along with the use of wood. Acidic glass is the best option, since the blasted glass is good to avoid due to the stains.
- The use of reminders and photos attached to doors is best suited for children and teenagers.
- If you want a vibrant color on your door, the ideal is for the environment to have white or nude furniture. The cleaner is better, since the differentiated and stripped-down touch will be on the door.
- If the floor and furniture are wood prefer raw doors.
- For small environments, shrimp and sliding doors occupy less space when open.
