Within weeks of moving into this brand new, modern Tauranga home the owner realised that she needed a way to divide the two adjacent lounges, particularly when entertaining visitors. The everyday lounge is part of an open plan kitchen/living area and the adjoining lounge is set aside for entertaining guests in a more intimate setting.
Stylish, internal doors were chosen from the 350 series to divide the two lounges, which fitted in with the home’s high quality, modern finish. Top hung door were chosen as they eliminate the need for guiding tracks on the floor, which can be tripped over or disrupt the look of the continuous, matching flooring.
Throughout the home the walls were finished in a neutral colour palette, which splashes of the homeowners’ favourite colour Aqua blue introduced through furnishing fabrics throughout the house. The doors used Etchlite semi-transparent glass infill, as this had already been used extensively throughout the home and worked well at picking up and reflecting the aqua colour.
Two matching 3.3 metre wide doors were required to partition the 2.4 metre high doorway. They were finished in a Dulux Silver Star (Metropolis Kinetic) powder coat to match other fixtures in the home. Manufactured and installed by HomePlus Tauranga, the customer was thrilled with the result.
