Elegant Interior Doors

Great design is all about the details, especially when it comes to the basics. Interior doors are often overlooked, as they are everyday items. We don’t think about them much, as we go about our day. However, step back for a moment and look at your home. Spend a bit of time looking at the details.

Take an objective look at your washroom door, bedroom door, or closet door. How does it enhance or match the overall look of your room or home? Do your current interior doors look cheap and standard? If you are considering a remodeling project, what kind of doors would appeal most to you, giving you the look you want for your renovation?

If you are looking for a change, here are some aspects to consider:

Style of Millwork

You can blend the style of your interior doors with the rest of the house, or they can be matched to your cabinetry design for a highly sophisticated look. You can also choose to create a statement piece or pieces with your interior door selection. Instead of purchasing something basic and boring, why not have a little fun or do something thoughtful or different? You can make a big statement and bring character to your indoor spaces by integrating specially designed doors into your interior design.

Design Trends

Choosing a new door design opens up myriad possibilities in terms of style. For example, one option that has become popular in Europe is to use Italian doors that are flush with the drywall, using hidden hinges. Barn doors have also made a comeback, as they are versatile and can look more elegant and interesting than pocket doors. Hidden doors are another great design choice, working especially well for kitchens and mudrooms.

Interior Door Hardware

There are many possible finishes available to help create the right mood and look for your interior doors. From black matte to brass, and many options in between, you can customize hinges, pulls and handles, and wheel tracks to match the look and level of sophistication that you desire.

Door Materials

Wood veneer is always a popular choice. Glass doors are timeless and elegant. Lacquered doors bring a modern touch. There are many options available for materials, weight, textures, and colours to get just the right look for your home.

Personalized Closet Design

One of the most important yet overlooked areas of our homes is closet space. When designed well, closet space is easy to access and use. When closet space is not being utilized optimally, it is less functional, often disorganized, and even awkward to use.

If you have to slide your body sideways and tilt yourself overtop of a shelf just to reach that item at the back of a closet, you know how frustrating it can be. That item may not end up back in that space if it’s so difficult to reach, leading to disorganization and an untidy home.

An industry study was conducted about closet design, including many people of various age groups and across genders, which confirmed the importance of good closet space in a home. 95% of the people who participated in this study indicated that the best improvement to their home would be having larger closets.

While larger closets are nice to have, it’s even more important to have the closets designed to maximize the space they occupy. A functional and ergonomic design does not waste space; it is easy to use.

You might not realize this, but one of the simplest ways to make a closet more functional is to add LED lighting and glass. Trying to find something at the back of a dingy, dark closet space is not easy; it makes for an unpleasant experience. By brightening up the closet and creating more visual access, everything in it is easier to find and it’s also then easier to then keep the space organized.

The effect lighting and glass has on a closet design is that it becomes grander. These are simple and effective ways to enhance the space. A good closet design will look good and be easy to use. Consider these finishes for your ideal closet design to create a chic look that is functional:

  • Glass
  • Leather
  • Lacquered wood
  • Wood veneer
  • Laminate
  • Mirror

BFJ Designs offers all these design elements, and it would be a pleasure to help you design a personalized closet space that you will find effective and easy to use. We specialize in custom designs to solve even the most challenging of closet spaces, to give you the best layout for your needs and a beautiful look that will be the envy of all your friends.
