My husband and I have planned to install a sliding door to the entrance to our TV room downstairs for the last year or so. We had extra supports put in the wall when we were building the house so that the door could hang from the top of the wall. It is going to be quite the large door - 1.75 metres x 2.4 metres - so the extra support was very much needed. We would like to make a feature of the door, which will face onto our main hallway near the front door and stairwell. One idea I had was to have a pattern laser cut into some kind of material, say MDF, and have a contrasting backing panel on the back. I stumbled across this image from Lonny again which gave me the idea to put mirror on the back. Sneaky isn't it, I only just clued onto the fact that was mirror behind the lattice pattern.
I quite love this pattern too. I contacted a company yesterday who does laser cutting and had some quotes with laser cut MDF (which would then be spray painted to whatever colour I select), with either an acrylic back or painted MDF back. I also had a quote with the pattern on both sides with an acrylic or MDF core (are you still with me, sorry I know pictures would help!) But that was not within our budget, though I know it would look amazing.
But seeing this image above this morning, I'm quite loving the idea of a white painted laser cut panel with a mirrored back. I will have to see if the company can do this for us.
ps. Here are some of the patterns I have been looking to choose from. I would love to know which one is your favourite?
