I have a clear memory of the door that we had in our kitchen when I was growing up. It was a wooden door that was painted white. One of the main things I remember about the door was that it had two white hooks, which held a number of coats. Often it was difficult to find the coat that I was looking for with four other people's coats to fight through. Also this made a very good hiding place so I would often stand behind our kitchen door beneath the coats when we played hide and seek.
The other thing I remember about that door was that my dad had fixed a height chart to the door. Each Sunday evening we would eat our meal in the kitchen and we would have a pudding, which was a real treat because it was Sunday. After our meal my dad would tell us to stand against the door and he would measure each of our heights and make a note on the chart with our initials and a date.
My brother was always fairly short for his age and despite being three years older than me, he was a fairly similar height for a number of years so he used to hate the weekly height check. When he was about seventeen he suddenly started to grow and each week my dad would record growth until he left to go to university. I had done most of my growth by this time so he just grew taller and taller than me. When he came home he would eagerly go to the kitchen door to be measured and he eventually made it to 6' 2", which surprised us all.
There are many reasons to remember doors in our homes. Whether they are a stylish design or had a particular use, they often have a special place in our memories. If you would like to buy a door that will be remembered for all the right reasons, then take a look at the Doorsan website.
