Entryways often change one’s impression about a home, much before you enter it, no matter how well or not the interiors are. The folks who live on the ground floor of the apartment I live in have this front door project going on for two weeks now – for every step forward, it’s a step backward. Fixing, painting, removing the edges, redoing it, and going back and forth on the design; it’s done now (hopefully).  This is perhaps why visualising or drawing is very important in an interiors project, especially if you don’t have the luxury of time and money, to repeat the same thing.

Arya Bhangy is a renowned name for hand-carved doors in Bangalore. Most doors can be used as pooja room doors as well (one of the readers had recently asked for pooja room door designs).  Most of the doors you see at their store have these kind of detailing and intricate craftsmanship – something which your regular carpenter will usually not be able to do.

The one below is a blend of traditional and modernity; this simple teak wood door has religious symbols doubling as the handle.


While we are on the topic of doors, I thought why not take a peek at other options. This classic dark door fits well against a white backdrop and green setting.

Want to break away from the rules? Try yellow, purple, blue or orange. You have an easy identification too – the one with the yellow door :)

I loved the stenciling on this door and the bell next to it. Brilliant idea!
