Answer: you can either plan or cut the door, or have a fanlight or an oculus installed.

Entrance or interior doors sold commercially have standardized dimensions. New homes have long used these dimensions for optimal integration, but sometimes the opening is not consistent in old buildings. What to do ? You have several possibilities. On the one hand, you can have a fanlight or an oculus installed at the opening. This consists of adding a decorative element (glazed or not) below or on the sides of the door, so as to fill the void while giving a welcome aesthetic appearance. But this only works if the opening is larger than the door. On the other hand, in the case where the opening is smaller than the door, you can plan it or cut the door yourself using a radial saw. Or to order a custom door in a specialized brand. You too, send us your question brico video id = "0" /
