How to choose the colour of interior doors

How to choose the colour of interior doors? Here’s a brief guide on why the colour of a door can have an important influence on the style and décor of a home.

Did you know that when you buy an Ermetika door you can choose the colour you prefer?

To make it easier to fit our doors into your space and find the right match for your décor, our doors can be lacquered in any RAL colour.
Even if it is a new construction, a renovation or a simple change in the decoration of the house, the colour of the structural elements must be carefully thought out precisely because they won’t be changed as often or easily as furniture.
In order to make a decision on the colour of our interior doors, we need to consider what kind of ambience we want to achieve. There are many approaches and opinions, but broadly speaking there are two ways to go: either match the walls and doors using the same colour or promote contrast between the several elements of the house.

In the first case, the aim is to create a uniform, harmonious and flexible environment that conveys a feeling of calm and relaxation. To achieve this kind of environment light colours are usually chosen, either in warm tones such as light white, ivory or dove grey, or in cooler shades such as grey or blue. When designing a uniform environment, attention must be paid to the characteristics of the room in order not to risk obtaining an undesirable result. If a colour is too dark it can make the room look gloomy, smaller and too shadowy.
The second approach to the matter in hand, is to break up the colour harmony between the parts by turning the door into a focal point of the room. Through this method, coloured doors achieve a modern and very dynamic effect. Be careful, however, not to overdo it with mixing different shades to avoid the risk of creating an overloaded and unwelcoming space.

A good suggestion for decorating these types of environments is to lacquer the doors by choosing one of the trendiest pantone colours, to develop a trendy and avant-garde design.
These methods represent two different solutions between which you can naturally develop infinite intermediate combinations: for example, interior doors with two different colours in both sides where each panel fits perfectly the room it faces.
So, don’t be afraid to be daring and let everyone see your creativity!
