Design Tip: Doors are the main component in the overall look of a well designed room.
Usually, our clients come to us for not only the install but the overall design because they quickly realized that there are a lot of considerations to make when selecting their woodwork or even paint colors. From the design style to the type of door construction the options are endless.
So today we wanted to share some tips for you to create a seamless design and follow a simple 3 step process on how to choose interior doors that are perfect for your home.
Choose Your Design Style
The first step in how to choose interior doors is style. We always start by getting a sense of our clients design style. Do you like ornate details, straight or curved lines, or do you enjoy more of the craftsman look? Once we get a sense for what our clients love and hate we can quickly narrow down what style we want to incorporate into the space. You also make sure to pay attention to the size of the actual space that the doors will be going into as well as your overall design plan for the room.
For example, if it’s a smaller space and you’re incorporating bold wallpaper throughout you don’t want to get too carried away with a giant door that has a lot of ornate details. If this was the case you would probably want to either stick with a more simple door so that the focus was on the wallpaper or visa versa. So, if you’re going for a subtle wallpaper, go bold on that door and have some fun with not only the design but the color.
Design Tip: If the overall look of the space has heavy design stick with more of a classic door. But if the overall look of the space is pretty simple, go big and bold with the doors.
Don’t be afraid to mix it up! A lot times you think you have to go with one design style or paint color throughout your entire home even with the woodwork but we are firm believers that you don’t. You can mix however many different styles that you want as long as you have a consistent color pallet sprinkled throughout the room and home. Trust me, it’ll all tie in together and look great!
Have some fun in the space, and using some cool styled doors is the perfect place to make a bold statement! Tone it down in one room and spice it up in another. The same goes with colors. Adding some color to a door can make the world of a difference a space. I mean how fun are these navy blue doors complimented by the white wainscoting and subtle grasscloth wallpaper?!
Choose Your Materials
One of the most important steps in how to choose interior doors is choosing the material. We always like to choose the door first before choosing the mouldings, trim and casing. Why? Because the door is going to create the biggest statement piece and then we can complement the casings and trim with the door afterwards. We then like to match the trim and moulding to the doors. You want to make sure it all flows together and that nothing is jumping out at someone when they walk into the room, not in a good way.
First when choosing your doors determine the amount of space you have for a door that will help solidify if you can do a French, double, or flush door. Once you’ve determined that you can choose whether you want a hollow, glass, solid, or intricate patterned doors based on the style you’re going with in the overall design of the room.
Design Tip: Upgrading your doors will not only have value to your home but give a luxury look.
Frame, Hang & Install
And finally, the last step in how to choose interior doors, once you’ve chosen all your finishings that go with your style it’s time for the install! You can have the best looking door out there but if you frame and hang it wrong, it’ll quickly distract from the overall look of the house and might even costs you money in the long run.
And there you have it, our tips on how to choose interior doors! With all the options out there we hope we were able to guide you into creating a beautiful space within your home. We can’t wait to see those gorgeous spaces of yours!
