I have nothing but praise to say about Notadoor. True to their website, it was really worry free wonderful experience. I am building a luxury house from a ground up and had a lot of choices to make. Valeriya was very patient in accommodating my ever changing vision of the future home in which doors - a lot of them! - turned out to be an essential part.
Initially I was a bit nervous trusting my big projects with dozens of various doors into hands of this young company. But after visiting their cozy showroom, talking to Valeriya and learning about the history and philosophy of quality and pride she and the team maintain, I decided to make a plunge and never regret. Through numerous showroom consultations and visiting the site I was patiently guided through ocean of choices of door models, finishes and opening systems. Sometimes it seemed that Valeriya in her proposals was more than me concerned about the integrity of overall home decor even in expense of Notadoor profit.
At some point, when I was hesitant to make a decision Valeriya and her design team provided me with a rendering of the intended door in the planned context, which not only was helpful, but turned out to be pretty close to the reality.
In a course of this decision making I set on unconventional using of non white doors in the basement. Looking backwards I think that was my best choice, making generic basement look unique.
And it pays. Now with doors in place everyone visiting me talks about them, their elegance, the quality of installation and seamless working of opening mechanics - it really feels like a Mercedes (substitute with your favorite luxury car brand here). The doors become talking point of my guests.
All the way through house construction even before door arrived Valeriya was frequent visitor at the job site, making sure other crews were comfortable in uncommon situation when doors are installed last. And when the time of installation came, Notadoor crew exceeded all my expectation. Really flawless job!
There were some special cases worth mentioning where Notadoor shined in non standard situations.
• Bathroom door opening is in a tight spot. Special bi-folding door made an elegant solution.
• Unusually wide laundry room. Matte glass door and double sliding cascade opening system was a perfect workaround, let alone thing of beauty. Installation was challenging due to heavy weight of door / rail combination, but was skilfully performed without resorting to quality sacrificing shortcuts. And now it takes no effort to open and close it even with one hand carrying laundry load.
• Overall quality of the door with excellent sound proofing was especially handy in such utilitarian spot as furnace room where noise otherwise would be a problem.
Overall, I am very happy with product, service and the final result. My home gained unmeasured quality of comfort and elegance, where instead of generic bland panels people would overlook, doors became a true mark of craftsmanship and design.
Kudos to Valeriya, Alex and the rest of Notadoor team working behind the scenes. Highly recommended!
