I recently wrote a Blog about interior decoration which focused on wallpaper and paint choices for walls, and how the colours and tonal quality of natural timber doors can motivate a colour choice for interior design schemes. At Doorsan we are very proud of our pre-finished, stunning, veneered timber doors which enhance the natural grain quality of the timbers and are quicker to fit. However, many of our customers purchase unfinished, usually Clear Pine, doors which allow them to paint or stain/varnish them to suit their schemes.
Having received the new Farrow & Ball paint shade card, see www.farrow-ball.com I think you will be motivated if planning a new design scheme. The resplendent colours are so inspirational for walls and woodwork and many will be great for finishing our pre-primed wood doors. It was so nice to see timber doors used in the New Colours 2013 booklet. So often interior photographs omit the view of the doors, which does exasperate us as a Door Supplier, we believe doors are an intrinsic item in a property and are so often neglected.
A word of advice is required: not all paints suit all engineered doors so before finishing any door with an opaque finish it is advisable to contact the company supplying paint finishes. I spoke to Farrow and Ball and they recommend that our customers contact them prior to finishing their doors in order to obtain the correct advice. Doorsan recommend Sikkens and Sadolin products for staining, however these products should be used as we recommend in our Terms and Conditions.
Doorsan Ltd have a great range of doors, suitable for traditional and contemporary schemes, any style will look great in On Trend paint finishes. Take a look at our ready to finish Primed White styles for interiors and exterior Hardwood options. The vintage look is very popular at the moment, used in clothing, wedding themes and interiors and with it comes a hint of pastel with pinks, yellows subtle blues and greys. Alternatively, hot tropical and neon colours have taken inspiration from modern technology such as 3D virtual worlds in computer graphics. There is still the every popular traditional, luxurious look which uses purples, greys and neutrals. Colour trends are usually geared to branding to get the attention of customers, it does not necessarily mean we have to choose them. However, a fresh look at colour is always a good thing and encourages us to be a little more daring.
