Dutch doors have a welcoming and charming look. I was amazed at the many available designs. They are used as interior and exterior doors. The Southern Living website showcases a variety of styles in some great colors. I've included a hunter green and slate blue door which are dressed up with great hardware.

For someone who is handy, adding custom trim to a door or window is not that difficult. Watch the instructional video attached for some pointers. Molding makes a dramatic difference in a room around ceilings, windows, and doors. Dreamland Interiors is always available for your remodeling needs. Check out our website to see some of our finished projects. I especially like the ceiling work we have done in various homes with custom moldings.

Schlage has been in the hardware business for over 95 years. They recently adopted the new Builder's Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMS) standards. It will be easier now for the buyer to identify hardware brands that receive the highest grades in three categories: security, durability, and finish. The new system employs the letter scores of A, B, and C. With an AAA over all three categories being of the best quality.

I just read about an 18 month experiment conducted in Hilo, Hawaii by JELD-WEN windows. Did you know that the #1 pest in Hawaii is the termite? JELD-WEN chose Hawaii because of the termites and moisture. They have developed a new treatment for their windows called AuraLast. JW constructed two structures on a termite colony--one structure of the AuraLast Wood Windows and one with regular wood windows. At the end of the 18 months, there was no rotting, water swelling, or termite damage with the AuraLast windows. They just needed wiped down and repainted. The regular wood windows were reduced to spongy wood scraps. JELD-WEN's new window manufacturing process does not involve dipping the wood into a vat of harmful chemicals, as is typically done. Wood in the AuraLast process undergoes a surface-to-core treatment through a proprietary vacuum/pressure process. This environmentally-safe, water-based application fortifies wood to the core. JW manufactures doors as well as windows. Visit their website to see the many styles to choose from.
