Cladding materials may be combined to create contrast or coordinate with other home features. When executed correctly, it can be both sophisticated and timeless. In the above example, the vertically oriented panels accentuate the length of the door and make the door appear taller. The door cladding consists of two different elements. First is the main finish and the second is the accent finish. The main finish is primarily used on most of the interior and exterior door surfaces. Approximately three-quarters of the door surface is occupied by the main finish. The accent finish is typically black or brushed stainless steel. The accent finish on the metal panel door will be used to match the door pulls and lock. When designing the door, please identify which finish is most important and then select the second thereafter. Remember, great design is not coincidental nor an accident, there is a science and method to it. If this is challenging, please contact the experts at MSD to seek advice. We are here to assist in any way possible.
