Episode Summary

EDIT
We like to detail our front entry closets like pieces of millwork as opposed to just passage doors with standard trim. In our case study house, we have created a millwork composition with the front entry closet that merges the trim and closet doors and includes an off-set display niche. The closet opening is drywalled in a standard way, but to make it look like millwork, we have used 3/4 inch lacquered cabinet door material – the same that we would use for millwork – and have installed the doors using standard cabinet hinges. It is important to use a lot of cabinet hinges to support the weight of the doors and mount the them forward in the frame so when closed, the doors are flush with the exterior trim. We have also used millwork bar pull handles instead of a more normative door handle. The final details involve the trim. In this case we have extended the trim around the corner to make the front closet appear to be a millwork unit that is slid into the drywall. We have also extended the trim to the left of the door to encase a vertical display niche in a contrasting wood material.moreless
