When I am faced with a new house that cries for some history added to it for character, I always head to The Door Store. There are beautiful architectural pieces from XL antique doors, to knobs and hinges, and everything in between. I have twice now installed older mantels that have been retrofitted into new homes for a fantastic finish that adds so much character!
Have a look - it's an easy place to visit in Designers Walk north in Toronto. The Door Store
