“Lana’s” Doors

At long last the doors have been installed. This was Lana’s little project and we’re very happy with the quality of the doors and the installation.

These are the doors leading from the living room to the bedrooms.

Bedroom Doors (Living Room Face)

This is the left hand door in the above photo, as seen from inside the bedroom:

The quality and style of the architrave was particularly pleasing:

Bevelled Architrave

The Turkish door handles Lana chose go well with the doors:

Bathroom door (on left) and inner entrance door:

Bathroom door & inner entrance door

This is the inner entrance door closed. Actually this was the only screw up because the intended handing was left-hand reverse swing - this is a right-hand swing.

Never mind…

Wrongly-handed internal entrance door

Doors are handed according to the way they are opened when entering a room. In this case we wanted the hinges on the other side and the door to open TOWARDS the front door because it would open that little bit wider and it would be better if it was that way in case of an emergency exit situation.

As it is the door “just about” opens to 90 degrees but this before we fix the skirting to the wall where the end of the door touches, then we may need to add a door stop but, if we’re careful about that, then it shouldn’t affect it very much.

If necessary we can turn the thing round but we’ll see how it goes.

This is the bathroom door in the opened position. It swings all the way in to an obtuse angle to make it easier to get Georgi into the bathroom. The WC will be beyond the end of the door, as it’s shown here. The washing machine will be behind the right-hand side of the door frame as seen in this view, so the door couldn’t open that way.

Living room

This is where the TV will go. We have 2 double sockets and a Cat 6 outlet for a better TV internet signal.

The kitchen lies behind this wall - you can see the kitchen window and door to the terrace in the background.

The small balcony on the left is where we (will) have the hot water boiler which also feeds the underfloor heating which we have throughout the apartment.

I hope it all works!

…and it was all yellow

Lana took these photos of the living room today - same room, same paint, but she says the one on the right is more like it looks in real life.

Lana used the word “kindergarten” in her description of what it looks like, so I’m scared to go there now!

I’m sure it’ll look ok with the floor cleaned and some furniture in there.
