At Doorsan we are aware that many of our customers are buying doors as part of a wider decoration or refurbishment project. While the doors that we supply typically have a white or Natural Timber finish, some are finished with an on trend neutral grey finish which are ready to fit. Customers sometimes ask about complementary colours to ensure their new doors will fit the scheme they have selected for their rooms. Our unfinished wooden doors can be painted especially the Clear Pine options and unfinished Oak doors with their lovely grain can be stained in a variety of hues.
Choosing complementary colours can be difficult and many people end up looking for inspiration online or in interior magazines or in the brochures of furniture and decoration suppliers.
Some of the interior design experts suggest creating a mood-board combining colours and textures to help piece together an attractive decoration plan. I have found this useful and I tend to find images online of attractive furnishings and objects and place these alongside colour swatches from paint companies and samples of wallpaper.
So, where do you start when you don't know what colours to choose? I read an article recently that suggested that the natural world is a great source of inspiration for finding colours that complement one another. If you think about your favourite flowers you may be inspired by the colours. For example the lavender shade of purple is a perfect complement to the Greyish green shade that you would see on the stem of a sprig of lavender. Alternatively you can consider your favourite landscape scene. Whether it is the pastel shades of pebbles on a beach or the vibrant colours in a summer meadow, you will find that the colours in nature naturally go well together. You can even consider your favourite season and this could inspire an Autumnal combination of oranges, reds and yellows or a Spring inspired mix of bright green, yellow and white.
Whatever colour shades you go for in your home, you can be sure you will find the perfect door within the Doorsan collection to complement your colour scheme. Please note: it is important to follow manufacturers advice when painting unfinished doors.
