One thing you probably haven’t thought about is the style of doors you’ll use in your home. When you contact a custom home builder, they’ll be able to tell you about all of the little decisions that go into building your home, like choosing doors. The following trending doors are great options to bring into any home.

If you’re thinking about adding a custom patio and pool to your back yard, complete the look with folding glass doors that open out onto your patio. Instead of having a single door, these folding doors allow you to create wider openings that make the inside of your home flawlessly flow outside, so you can more easily enjoy those warm summer days.

When it comes to trending doors, it’s hard to not talk about barn doors. Complete with mounted sliding tracks, these doors are perfect for loft-like spaces and for homes with rustic charm. With so many treatment options for wood, your custom home builder can easily create a door that fits with the style of your home. If you like the barn door style but want something a little more modern, consider using a different material like sheet metal or even chalkboards.
