Most people are bored of their cookie cutter, cheap fiberboard doors. They want something that’s a little more exciting and truly reflects the home in which they live. Fortunately, the market has responded. And over the last few years, we’ve seen a flood of new designer doors hit the market. Doors are suddenly hot again, and an important interior design feature for any home. So what’s going on in the market right now?
One of the most interesting design trends we’ve seen this year is the rise of so-called “pocket doors.” These are doors that slide open and close, rather than swing. These doors have a distinctly Japanese feel. They are the result of having to make do with only a small amount of space. In fact, they’d be perfect in any Japanese flat in downtown Tokyo. Sliding doors mean that furniture can be kept closer to the door area, opening up the rest of the room.
Right now, property developers are also getting interested in sliding doors. Where space is at a premium, they work to make properties more attractive to buyers. But they’re also excellent at making a minimalist statement. Sliding doors can be made to slide away into cavity walls. And this helps create a more seamless transition between rooms.
Internal Designer Glass Doors
There’s been a significant movement recently among people wanting more open plan living. And this has led to a surge in interest in interior glass doors. Interior glass doors open up space inside a home by providing windows into other rooms in the house.
Glass doors have a chic feel. And right now they’re very much on trend. You can go for a traditional white look. But there’s nothing to stop you from experimenting with other colours. Pastel colours will work well here, especially if your room is similarly themed.
