I’m heading into my fourth year of home-ownership soon, and I think it’s finally safe to say that every inch of my main floor has officially been updated.
And before I dive into how good everything looks, I want to take a mo’ to thank Metrie for making and supplying such amazing doors and casing. Initially, I hummed and hawed over whether this update was worth it, but in the end, I can’t imagine going back to my previous hollow doors!
In particular, I got the Masonite Expo Lincoln Park doors (and upgraded them all to Safe n’ Sound) and cased them using their 3-1/2″ True Craft Scene. Instead of mitering the casing and keeping it all simple and square, I got Elite Signature Homes (the crew who installed all this goodness) to cut the top run beyond the sides by 3/4″ which I capped off with an overhanging strip. I then paired it all with square-stock poplar baseboards and these chrome lever handles and I’m super happy with how it all turned out. The casing adds so much character and architectural detail that my home lacked before. Add in my beautiful, new Louise Grey Little Quilt No. 3, and my hallways are pretty darn happy.
