The 'look' you are after

More often than not the aesthetic look that you are after will over-ride the cost consideration factor because if you want a door where the edges are all wrapped around, then this means that the laminated door(which is the most economically priced) is not an option for you as it doesn't come like this. If you are open to changing the 'look' that you want, then sometimes you can literally save thousands of dollars by simply doing this.
