Character doors are just that, doors with extra character. They may be from a traditional or contemporary design bent but have some treatment or material use that adds a unique character to the door. Hand hewing, wire brushing or sand blasting can add texture wile use of a knotty or reclaimed wood can add rustic character to an otherwise traditional or contemporary design. The use of forged iron work or industrial metal pieces could be another way to add drama or character. Some doors are just built to have lots of character, like a rustic Knotty Alder door that is hand hewn and has special finish treatments and might be found in a lake side home, ski chalet or a wine cellar.
