Selecting the right interior door style for your home seems more overwhelming than it should. Of course, there are a lot of things to consider but if you narrow down the list it becomes easier and less overwhelming.
People getting a new house built or planning to renovate, will find themselves thinking a lot about the style of their interior doors. Your doors actually describe the style and flow of your home. To make the experience less stressful, the following blog post provides a simple guide about the process of choosing interior doors.
Pick An Interior Door Style
The first step in choosing an interior door is to select the style of your interior door. Picking the style will determine the whole feel of your home. Be sure to keep the details of the room in mind and choose the style that fits the best. Selecting a more ornate door will make the space look smaller.
So, consider the size and space of the room. You can select a barn door, glass glazed door, paneled door, french door, frame doors, pocket doors, dutch doors, and many more types. The key in the style of all interior doors is consistency, so a design flow is created.
The top determining factors to keep in mind when selecting your doors style are;
- Which room is it for?
- How tall are the ceilings of your home?
- What is the style of your home?
- What material is the flooring?
Choose Which Way The Door Is To Swing
Next up is to think and decide the placement of your doors’ hinges. Do you want your door to open into the room or out into the other room? Usually, people choose a bedroom door to swing into the room. Spaces like a family room or the dining area have in-swinging doors.
The simplest way to do so is to imagine yourself moving into a room and see which way the door should swing to be comfortable and convenient to operate for you.
Select The Material
The material of the door must match the aesthetic of your home to create a design flow. For example, glass doors with antique furniture will surely look out of place. This means that the material you choose for your doors will be a big determining factor in your design flow. You can choose from solid wood, warm wood, glass doors, and more to match your home’s aesthetic.
Pantries and sunrooms generally look good with glass doors. While solid wood doors look beautiful for the living room and bedroom.
Door frames are just as important as the door themselves. How you frame your doors has a great impact on the overall look of the area. If your door is more ornate then it is better to choose a simple frame casing to make your door stand out.
If your door is less complicated then going for a more detailed door casing is a healthy option to opt for. But this is just a general practice, you can choose the casing according to your preference like a case with chunkier molding will also look good.
Choose The Perfect Color
Last but not least, choose the compatible color for each door. This means a color that will match the interior and furniture of each room. If you want to have the same color for every interior door you can opt for neutral colors. These colors will help the doors merge to any interior decoration or color scheme.
