Doors and walls, which colours to choose? Harmonising or contrasting?
These are just some of the questions you should ask yourself when defining the colour mood of your project.
When furnishing your flat you should also pay particular attention to the choice of doors, which are essential connecting elements between one room and another and influence both the style and the comfort or habitability of the place itself.
From a stylistic and aesthetic point of view, a linear connection between the colours of the walls and the various finishes of the interior doors is not only enjoyable, but also a way of enhancing and balancing the interior of your home.

How to match colours harmoniously

Whether you want to try to contrast the two shades of door and wall or harmonise them as much as possible, in order to positively distinguish your flat from others, as well as giving voice to your desires and needs, Ermetika recommends matching colours according to the effect you want to achieve.
For example, in the bedrooms, we generally try to create an atmosphere that is as relaxing and welcoming as possible and therefore opt for warmer, neutral shades.
In common areas, on the other hand, at your own discretion, you will try to create brighter environments through the use of very light colours, or create environments with a strong impact through a contrast, highlighting frames and furniture.

Walls with white doors

Installing a light coloured door such as white, dove grey or ivory immediately brightens up a room. In this regard, placing it alongside a white wall will give the room a sense of width, continuity and linearity. In this way, the rest of the furniture, which usually has a different colour, will also be highlighted.

On the other hand, as you can see from the following pics of our products Evolution and Absolute Swing, if you want to give a stronger identity to a room, while remaining in a refined atmosphere of comfort and cosiness, we recommend installing white (or light coloured) doors on more neutral walls, such as grey, antique pink or powder pink, caramel or sage green, or on darker walls, such as wood-colour or dark grey.

Walls with darker doors

If your intention is to create a space with a strong impact and a more decisive design, then you could opt for interior doors in darker and colder colours, such as black, grey, brown, blue, and install them on walls of a softer but darker colour.

However, we suggest placing darker doors next to lighter coloured walls, because a dark colour could make a room look small and this kind of atmosphere could become unpleasant and uncomfortable over time.

Alternatively, you could opt for a dark wooden door to give a certain atmosphere of warm elegance to the room, as can be seen in the following pics of our popular Evolution model.

Matching walls and doors

Another furnishing solution in your home or in any type of property is to harmonise the colours of the walls and doors.

In this case, of course, there are countless combinations: from total white to dove grey or wood, to more lively and bizarre colours and patterns depending on the use of the rooms and your personal preferences.
This will create an effect of total and linear continuity in the room, but the possibilities are as great as the difficulty of creating an environment that is always comfortable and does not bore the user over the years.
