When someone refers to the term ”builder-grade” they are referencing the technique used on their built house, typically the style seen in larger housing developments and commonly built contractor houses. They are often made using the cheapest and most bare bones and basic materials, with features that are “just enough” like small tub/shower combos, basic bedroom closets, and boring wood doors..
A builder grade door is just what you think it is… a blank piece of flattened wood; lacking character, charm, and aesthetics. Buying a custom door is expensive and building one is hard. But not to fret, one woman has a simple DIY that made her previous builder-grade doors look custom and it was super simple to do, and the best part, it cost less than $50, check it out!
The woman who posted this door flip had her video shared to Instagram page @renovationsx. The page is quite popular with over one million followers and boosting just under four thousand posts. It is pretty well versed in all things DIY, sharing from full room remodels down to small details such as this video showcasing a custom door flip.
Her builder grade doors are just as we described previously, large flat planks of wood.. To give them a custom look the woman first scheteched up her layouts on a piece of paper, and decided on what design be fitted the room. She got her plywood from Home Depot and begin cutting out the designs to then uses liquid nails to attach the sections creating the design- but we strongly recommend the use of a brad nailer for a project like this . She seals the seams with caulk and then paints over the entire door with a fun moody blue color.
