Masonite Introduces Contemporary Interior Door Line


TAMPA, Fla. -- Leading door manufacturer Masonite® announces a premium offering in the interior molded door category called the West End™ collection. The versatile new product line features sharp horizontal embossed lines and bold graphic elements to evoke a chic and metropolitan feel and add appeal to any home.

“Residential customers are skewing younger, and their design preferences differ from those of their parents and grandparents,” said Jason Walsh, industrial designer for Masonite. “Growing up in a paperless, clutter-free world, they often prefer clean and streamlined designs. These doors are on-trend with that aesthetic.”

Horizontal lines give the Melrose door a classically modern feel            The West End collection includes two designs, the Melrose™ and the Berkley™, which are both available in 80” and 84” heights and a range of widths in both interior passage and bi-fold doors  in a primed hardboard finish. Twenty minute fire rated doors are also available.
