A pre-hung door is nothing but a pre-finished door consisting of an engineered door frame called the door jamb, the door, and architraves―all polished and supplied along with locks and hinges.
Re-facing is a cheaper and faster option compared to pulling down everything and starting fresh. It involves covering up your old cabinets with new ones and is completed in a day or two. The downside to this option is that though the kitchen gets a new look, the appliances and the cabinets still remain the same.
The door frame is generally made of hardwood coupled with UPVC (Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) which makes the door frame rank high on durability. The hardwood composition is meant for the outer door frame, whereas for the inner door frame, the material that is employed is called galvanized steel. The composite door thermal efficiency is enhanced due to the polyurethane foam consistency and the use of Glass Resistant Plastic. GRP has the capacity to retain its color and enhances the appearance of the door, thereby giving a grainy wood-like effect. It has a highly resistant fiberglass available in variegated colors, together with galvanized steel that aids the door in sustaining the weather conditions preventing it from warping, expanding or contracting. Thus, the insulation that the door provides is par excellence. Due to the chlorofluorocarbon content in the door composition, the door keeps the interiors of the house warm during winters and pleasant during summers.
Apart from the basic ideas mentioned above, you have a lot to explore and experiment in trim designs. Addition of various elements and playing with trim sizes is what can help you create appealing trims. You can add stained glass borders besides the door trim which are much popular these days. Decide the width of stained glass border depending upon the height for your doors. There are a range of options available in terms of colors and designs in stained glass which can help you to create lovely borders. A border of pebble inlays is another beautiful addition to the simple trims. Adding decorative corner blocks is the best solution to spice up classy trims. There are number of designs available in corner blocks which can jazz up the trims. Similarly you can add an intricately design block to the top center of trim which further heightens beauty of the door.
