Interior doors are as important as exterior doors. Within a home or a building, interior doors are used to separate one room from another. When you consider installing interior doors for your new home or want to refurbish your home by replacing the old doors with new ones, you need to keep in mind that uniformity is not a necessity that you have to obey. Replacing the old doors does not mean you have to stick with only one particular design or color. Indeed, you can experiment by choosing different designs or styles to create an eclectic home interior.
An antique style door would not look good in a minimalist home. So before deciding on which style of door you will install, you need to keep in mind that it is best to stick to one decorating theme. If you follow this rule, selecting the right doors should not be a difficult task to do. If your home has contemporary style, for instance, you can freely choose which type of door to use. You can choose from a wide selection of colors as well as materials. A contemporary home can use wooden door made from oak, pine, mahogany, or cherry wood, but you can also use doors made from metal or glass for a more modern touch. On the other hand, glass interior doors would look odd in a traditional style home.
As mentioned previously, modern interior doors are available in many different designs and materials. You can find simple, plain doors made from one particular type of wood, or fancy ones that use a combination of two types of wood or more, combination of wood and metal, combination of wood and glass, or combination of the three materials. There are also those which are entirely constructed out of glass or metal. Although wood, glass, and metal are the most commonly used materials for modern door designs, other materials such as stone and bamboo can also be used.
Modern interior doors made from wood or metal still generally use neutral colors such as white, black and brown. You can also use variations of those three colors such as off-white, gray, or light brown. Vibrant colors such as yellow, electric blue, light green, or bright red are rarely used in modern interior design. However, doors made from fabric glass do not follow this color rule as they often feature vibrant colors such as yellow and red with intricate flowery patterns.
