Dark interior doors are one of the hottest home decor trends this year and as we’ve never mentioned it before, we’d like to share some ideas and inspiration.
Why have this trend in your home? It’s easy to implement and instantly brings drama to your space, even if it’s very simple. Black doors add balance to other black decorations in the room and create a cohesive look. Dark doors make the ceilings look higher and literally go with wall and floor decor and colors that go with almost any style. Painting doors in sophisticated dark shades or just black makes them look more expensive, and it’s also very practical: dark shades hide dirt very well. Even if these reasons aren’t enough to get your doors painted black, you can look for inspiration below and I’m sure these pictures will convince you!
Shiny dark doors
If your room doesn’t get a lot of light, choose a high-gloss or semi-gloss finish for your black door. The shine reflects the light in the room and makes it appear brighter. A glossy finish goes well with metallic furniture and accents.
Matte dark doors
Conversely, a matte finish is a better option if your room is white or draws a lot of light. Matte black also makes for a more earthy feel so it goes well with wood paneling.
Balance your dark doors with a black decor in the room or a black ceiling or leftover trim if you don’t have enough or no black items in the room. This technique works well in small rooms with crisp, white walls that create a contrasting look and divert attention from the fact that the room is small.
