The importance of selecting the right doors

The importance of selecting the right doors

As an invitation to enter everything from your home itself to the smallest kitchen cupboard, doors play a magnificent role in every home.

However, it’s important to place as much emphasis on selecting the right design for your doors as you do every other design element in a room.

Doors offer a unique opportunity to add character and should flow seamlessly throughout your house, coordinating with interior design themes and complementing your personal style.

As designers of custom doors and custom wardrobe doors, we love drawing on inspiration from international design trends through to historic design styles to create doors that make a visual statement.

Here are a few creative ideas to help you select the right doors for every room in your home…

Be consistent with your theme

The design theme of your doors should match that of your home.

For example, if you have a contemporary kitchen, your cupboard doors and surrounding doors should also have a contemporary style. Choosing an Edwardian style door in a contemporary kitchen would create a sense of inconsistency and confusion.

Custom doors can be designed in an array of styles to match any design theme, including:

  • French
  • Hamptons
  • Contemporary
  • Shaker
  • Scandinavian
  • Victorian
  • Edwardian
Make a statement with handles

Designers are spoiled for choice when it comes to handle selection, but choosing the right handle depends on the design statement you want to make.

For example, a Hamptons-style door is accentuated with cup pull handles that have the characteristics of a shell.

French doors look beautiful with sleek cast iron or stainless steel handles that stand out against minimalist panelling.

Before selecting your door handle, make time to evaluate your options and consider how your choice will complement the style of your door and reinforce the theme of your room.

Get creative with colour

Doors can be painted any colour you desire and be a feature in and of themselves.

Go bold with colours such as purple, orange or blue, or textural with wood grain paints.

If you decide on a sleek white look, there are many shades of white available – from snow to eggshell, cream or vanilla – with each creating a unique mood as you enter a room.
