There’s a clear trend emerging in the San Francisco luxury residential market. The magnificent millwork that once defined our great city has found itself out of favor, if not outright ostracized. As the trend within fine homes continues to slant modern, we’re seeing interior finishes getting sleeker and more refined. One hot trend embraced by designers almost across the board, the casing-less interior door.
The finished look is fantastic: clean, flush, and elegant. But the path to a successful install is riddled with challenges. There are several products available, some off the shelf, others custom. All presenting their own unique challenges that you should consider when specifying this look in your projects. Watch the video for four products we’re using and the pros and cons of each.
Several manufactured options are hitting the marketplace. Newest to the scene, the AGS frame imported from Italy (Front, White corner sample, and right behind the extrusion assembled, same product) Wood Product (Rear) custom 5/4 wood frame from GSL, built to specification, this example features a kerfed in screen lath for reinforcing the sheetrock mud between wall and frame.
