The era when interior doors served only for zoning space is long gone. Now, they are used as an integral element of the interior, creating the atmosphere you have in mind: light, airy, austere, dynamic, or calm.

Beautiful doors are witnesses to the owners' love for their home. Since they are bought for a long time, paying attention to the material of their manufacture and technical characteristics, design, and shade is essential. Therefore, in this article, we will tell you how to choose the right color of interior doors so your house or apartment will look stylish.

Variability of finishes

When choosing a door color, paying attention to the type of finish is critical, as the coating determines how broad the palette will be.

The most popular options:

  • Primer: once installed, the slab can be painted to match the wall color, wallpapered, or finished with decorative plaster.

  • Enamel: we apply it in several layers at the factory to ensure a perfectly flat surface without defects and to protect the door from scratches, moisture, and temperature fluctuations.

  • Polypropylene: it is a durable film that is resistant to moisture and mechanical damage, so doors with this finish are suitable for residential and office use. Wetting them with a damp cloth without aggressive detergents is enough when cleaning. Polypropylene is not afraid of sunlight, so it does not fade over time, retaining its original shade.

  • Veneer: these strips of natural wood are up to 3 mm thick, glued on top of the MDF panel, and covered with protective varnish or enamel. Veneer is a durable material that gives the door a luxurious appearance.

Popular interior door colors

White Doors

White color has always been, is, and will be at the peak of popularity in almost any interior style. Its widespread popularity is due to several factors:

  • It visually increases the space because it is part of a particular spectral range, which can visually "expand the boundaries" of the room.

  • White also illuminates the living or working place because it reflects much light.

  • This shade is elegantly combined with different textures, materials, patterns, and palettes.

  • Depending on the interior door model and the room's overall style, it can look strict, laconic, or luxurious.

  • Because it is considered neutral, along with pastel shades, it will be combined with any furniture, flooring, walls, ceiling, and home accessories.

In short, this color represents classiness, versatility, and timeless trends. That means that by purchasing quality white interior doors, you are 100% choosing to favor perfect aesthetics and practicality.

Black Doors

One of the top trends is black color, the main advantage of which is practicality. However, dark shades are not recommended in small rooms lacking light because such tones can visually reduce the area.

This color is associated with stability and calmness and harmonizes with the high-tech style. High-tech interiors also welcome precise geometry, glass or metal structures, and the game of contrasts, so expressive black doors suit light or saturated dark rooms.

Gray Doors

The gray color will "take root" in every interior because it is stylistically neutral and looks good with almost any range. Aesthetically attractive combines white, yellow, green, red, pink, and purple colors.

Gray doors often apply in apartments decorated in classic, minimalist, or French style. After all, it is just that shade, which is unpretentious in care and non-marking in operation.

Brown doors

As before, natural shades remain fashionable this season: oak, walnut, chestnut, elm, ash, and wenge. They are popular among swing and sliding doors.

Brown interior doors are a full range of shades. Thus, the finish can be reddish, golden, or dark chocolate.

Our range includes more than 100 models in Veralinga Oak and Pecan Nutwood.

Ivory and pearl

Both shades are designed to be a reflection of sophistication and elegance. Our interior doors are coated with high-quality, hard-wearing enamel to convey their depth and brilliance. This finish, creating a perfectly flat surface without defects, transforms each door into a work of art.

Pearl and ivory colors fit harmoniously into modern interiors, complementing and refreshing them. It looks especially effective with natural tones — resulting in a luxurious and cozy atmosphere.

How do you choose the color of interior doors for different rooms?

Living room

The living room will look harmoniously natural and beige shades, especially if the interior has plants, because green, as the color of health and freshness, combined with brown or unobtrusive light gray, will create a family idyll in the room. For dynamics, you can add a little pink. To make the atmosphere peaceful, choose blue colors.

Sometimes, designers prefer to accentuate with citrus tones. For example, yellow can be used in decor elements.


When choosing colors for the kitchen, you should not limit yourself to the traditional white and gray. As a special place for meals, soulful meetings, and conversations, it can be decorated in yellow-orange colors because they make food tastier, fueling the desire to try dishes on the table.

If the priority is elegant restraint, black is suitable as a base color. Natural combinations will be universal.

The color of tranquility is the color of the sea and, simultaneously, the sky. If you are in the mood for relaxation, choose calm shades of interior doors: blue, turquoise, pistachio, milk, or ivory. The main thing is that there should be no sharp or complex gradients.


The morning begins in the bathroom, so choosing a suitable color scheme is a matter of principle. If cold sea shades will set the mood for relaxation, then bright elements, in contrast, can raise the mood.

Since the bathroom area is usually small, it is unnecessary to "steal" the light and make the room more cramped using dark colors. Trendy in its design are white and pastel shades.

Tips for choosing the color of interior doors

  1. Practicality. You should undoubtedly take into consideration the type of room. Warm shades harmonize with the living room, light tones — with the bedroom, and for a children's room, it is better to avoid too bright colors.

  2. Is the picture on the Internet or reality? Since monitors and screens distort colors to a greater or lesser extent, it will be more competent to choose the finish of the door in the showroom if there is such an opportunity.

  3. Accents. Use doors to create contrast. Bright hardware or a stand-out slab color can become an exquisite accent to the interior.

  4. Matchability. Choose the color of the doors, focusing on the color of the floor, walls, or furniture. As a rule, curtains are not included in this list, as they only complement the overall picture.

  5. Personal preferences. Remember your feelings. Despite fashion trends, the main thing is that you should be cozy to be in your home.

  6. Professional help. If choosing the perfect interior door seems complicated, don't hesitate to contact professionals. Door Design Lab experts will be happy to answer your questions.
