At One Day Doors and Closets, we're always excited to collaborate with talented individuals who share our passion for home improvement.

The Project

Jenn Largesse has been on a mission to transform her kitchen, taking on a DIY remodel that has captivated her social media audience. As part of her renovation journey, she recognized the potential of her pantry doors to elevate the overall design of her kitchen. That's where we came in.

Jenn reached out to One Day Doors and Closets with a specific vision in mind: she wanted swinging pantry doors that would seamlessly coordinate with her kitchen’s design and cabinet colors. Given our expertise and the variety of our offerings, we were perfectly positioned to bring her vision to life.


The Process

Understanding the importance of cohesion in interior design, our team collaborated closely with Jenn to ensure the pantry doors would seamlessly integrate into her kitchen's aesthetic. Given her choice of the Leland Shaker Series for her pantry doors, it was paramount to ensure these doors not only functioned optimally but also resonated with the style she was meticulously crafting in her kitchen. The objective was clear: to establish a harmonious flow between the pantry doors and the kitchen cabinets, achieving a unified and sophisticated look that felt both deliberate and refined.

One Day: Home Transformation Process

Before we dive into the transformation, our team conducts an initial inspection of your doors. This allows us to understand the unique characteristics of your space and set the stage for a seamless transformation. 

Post-inspection, we employ advanced 3D measurement technology. Every door frame in your home is meticulously measured down to 1/1,000th of an inch, ensuring a flawless fit for each door. 

With the measurements in hand, we invite you to our showroom. Here, you can explore and select the perfect pantry door style and color that resonates with your vision and complements your home decor. 

Based on your selection, each door is custom-made in our state-of-the-art factory. Every door is tailored to meet the unique specifications of your home, ensuring it aligns with your chosen space and style. 

Our certified door installers handle the final step. With unmatched expertise, they ensure each door fits seamlessly into its frame, transforming your space with minimal disruption.

The Result

The transformation with the installation of the two swinging pantry doors was nothing short of spectacular. Not only did the doors impeccably match the kitchen cabinet colors as Jenn had envisioned, but they also introduced an added layer of elegance to the entire space. The decision to opt for swinging doors was the final touch to Jenn’s kitchen remodel, providing effortless access to the pantry's contents and serving as a subtle yet impactful design statement.


But the magic didn't stop there. Demonstrating her DIY prowess, Jenn further enhanced the pantry's functionality and style by installing custom shelving herself. This addition perfectly complemented the new doors, creating a cohesive and thoughtfully designed pantry space that seamlessly blended with the rest of the kitchen.


Our collaboration with Jenn Largesse of House One, highlights our commitment to quality, precision, and design excellence. Whether we're working with a DIY enthusiast, a homeowner looking to refresh their space, or a professional designer, our goal remains the same: to transform homes One Day at a time.
