We are currently making a custom door for one of our customers in Hawaii Kai. All handmade in Honolulu, Hawaii by furniture maker Satoshi Yamauchi. This is a plantation style louver imitation door.
At the request of the home owner, this door is made to look like a louver door but does not have any ventilation whatsoever, meaning the louver panels do not open. A new door was added to the home and since this particular house had all louver doors it made sense to keep the design flow going. However the purpose of the door was to shut out sound so we came up with a closed louver style door. This custom made louver door will be painted in white, to go with the rest of the home in Hawaii Kai.
Here are some practical examples of the application of louver doors at home.
