While classic styles will always remain popular, each year brings new trends in interior door preferences. These are the popular styles we’re seeing so far this year:

Sleek and modern. With minimalism gaining more and more ground, many people are turning to strong, functional materials, especially for common rooms and home offices. Primed shaker and flat panel doors will continue to be a popular design option.

Bold neutrals. Crisp white is a timeless look for most interior styles, but adding colors like grey, espresso, or black creates beautiful contrast for natural wood accents and flooring. With design options ranging from 1-panel to 6-panel, Woodgrain shaker doors offer a variety of choices that will look good in virtually any color.

Clean lines. This year, less is more when it comes to door styles. The trend toward a modern look means staying away from ornate details. Think minimal and stick to simple designs.

This unique single family residence is situated in a natural setting nestled in the beautiful Ozark hills. Dubbed “The Modern Silo” by the builder, Monticello Homes and Development; the home is truly where country meets high design. A galvanized grain silo is the focal point and core of the home which is otherwise modern in design and surrounds the silo. With both homeowners being designers, high design is evident throughout the home; from the galvanized clad spiral staircase, to the backsplash with a ribbon of randomly placed nickels.

The living space extends outside with two covered porches and many other patios accessible through any of the 6 patio doors. This offers many outdoor living spaces to enjoy the beautiful views of the natural Ozark hills. The window and doors were strategically designed into the home to capture the spectacular views.  Most openings were positioned with southern exposure to improve energy efficiency and utilize natural light.

With the central feature of the home being a round galvanized grain silo, it was a challenge for the builder and installer to devise a weather proof and aesthetically pleasing method to install flat windows into a curving wall section. To accomplish this, the builder devised extended window bucks that reached beyond the curve to allow for the windows to be installed onto a flat surface. The window bucks were then flashed in a bronze metal to protect the buck and fully flash the window while still complimenting the look of the galvanized silo.
