Interior doors flush to wall: a choice of minimal and modern design

If minimalism and modernity are the sine qua non in the choice of furnishings for your rooms, even the interior doors will necessarily have to pass the test.

In these cases, whether you are furnishing a newly created environment or renovating an apartment or an existing office, your decision will focus on minimalist and technologically advanced interior doors.

Whatever the choice, it will always be essential to carefully assess the available proposals, in terms of lines, materials, performance and technology. Remember in fact that interior doors, with their essential functions to separate and connect rooms, are an architectural and ornamental element of exceptional importance.

Among the various types of interior doors which are eligible candidates for minimalist environments there is the so-called door flush to wall, with invisible hinges and frames. It is an architectural element whose strength relies entirely on the concept of neutrality.

The interior door flush to wall is an invisible door: it merges with the environment and it blends into the wall surface in which it is inserted. It is flush to wall and, if offered with an exclusive finish, a decoration or a special coating, it is nearly a modern masterpiece.

Interior doors flush to wall: between design and formal rigour

In the past, all the interior doors of an environment were identical while nowadays new trends combine a higher concept of heterogeneitythe door flush to wall can therefore be the one and only in an environment, installed not only to connect rooms but also to represent a different piece of furniture in that context.

We could almost define the door flush to wall as the antithesis of the classic swing door: if in one everything seems to disappear, in the other every detail is visible and impossible to ignore, from the panel to the hinges. If in the swing door the division of the rooms is the main task, the door flush to wall has an absolute formal rigour and its task is a complete continuity of the surfaces.

Elegance and uniformity are therefore the essential elements of the doors flush to wall. You can choose them with the same colour shades of the walls or, alternatively, with different finishes and colours, even bright, without altering the incredible and innate ability to disappear from sight almost inherent in their nature. Varnishing, printing, finishing to put them in evidence can turn them into design elements, but their discretion, their formal rigour, will never be called into question.

Interior doors: also in 2017 wood dominates the scene

Wood continues to dominate the field of interior doorsalso in 2017, the trend seems reconfirmed by placing this material, characterized by heat and vitality, directly on the podium.

Fashionable textures aim to enhance grains and contrasts, but also the original tactile sensation of natural wood. The lines, although modern, adapt to the trend and reflect on panels and details in oak, chestnut, hemlock – just to name a few. With regard to the colour palettethe textural effect – greatly implemented by eventual oil treatments on the surfaces – is highlighted at its best in the most natural and burnished colours, but also in spectacular notes of anthracite and natural leather.

Wooden interior doors are, even today, the favourite choice of those who want to furnish highly stylish environments, characterized by a strong, welcoming and at the same time comfortable personality.

The grains on large surfaces seem to come alive and their irregularity becomes the perfect contrast to the clean, basic and icy lines that characterize the doors, but also for metal details – such as handles and hinges.

In its inevitable effect of merger and contrast, wood is and remains one of the most sought-after materials and highly regarded in the industry, regardless – it seems – of the latest trends.

The aesthetics of a door is partly due to design but also to the material which is the essential element that makes the difference.

Therefore, in 2017 fine and refined wood will be preferred for interior doorsLuxury becomes real through items in white ebony– which can be used only in the case where the tree falls naturally, but also in Ziricote. The latter, nicknamed “wood of bones” for its amazing grains which recall an x-ray of the human body, as if it were a plant extension of the Vitruvian man by Leonardo, is still in the list of the finest woods for doors.

Then there is the Zebrano, which in Interior Design seems to find its ideal destination especially for the details of cars and luxury yachts, and the Bocote, with its golden tones embellished with darker grains and a striking beauty pattern.

About interior doors: functions and types

Styles, colours and finishes are three essential parameters when we have to choose the interior doors of our house, office or any other environment.

The essential premise you shouldn’t forget is the importance of doors in the customization of environments and in their functionality. Not only the interior doors link one room to another and delimit spaces, but they can also be characterized by their role as true design elements. For these reasons, at the moment of choice it will be very important to assess both their aesthetics and performance.

Interior doors types currently available are numerous, so as to satisfy any requirement of furniture. From materials, to locking systems, styles, colours, shapes, finishes and dimensions, they have the same great personality as sofas, tables and design chairs. First of all, you will therefore assess all the look and space requirements, considering all the functions that the interior doors will perform:

  • Separation and connection of rooms
  • Delimitation of rooms
  • Reduction of noise pollution
  • Privacy requirement
  • Aesthetics

It is important to know and distinguish the various types of interior doors, in order to choose the most appropriate solution. We could enclose the interior doors in three main categories:

  • Interior swing doors: they are the most traditional type, generally composed of one or two doors opening through the action of the hinges. If properly realised, they are characterized by a good thermal and acoustic insulation and are generally in glass or wood, but also plastic or metal. The standard swing door is usually in solid wood, wooden strips and honeycomb. These interior doors can have any kind of finishes: natural, lacquered or laminate.
  • Interior sliding doors: they have the huge advantage to use the available space in a more efficient and rational way, and they are therefore particularly suitable for not too large environments. These interior doors slide inside the subframe which, in turn, can be recessed in the wall or limited to rails that run along the wall. There are also sliding doors with two leaves, which can be generally opened on two walls. Interior doors which disappear inside the wall have a subframe which can be coated with plaster or with a plasterboard panel: the wall remains bare and free, giving the impression of a larger available space.
  • Interior folding doors: they are composed of two or more panels which, at the time of opening, overlap as if they were an accordion. The overall dimensions of the door are in this way effectively halved and, in this way, this is the best door for environments with not too large surfaces. One of the advantages of folding and also sliding doors is, especially when they are made of glass, or glass and other materials (wood, aluminium, resin), to intelligently use the available space ensuring a bright airy effect.

There are of course many other parameters by which to choose the interior doors for your home or office, such as materials, shapes, colours, finishes and sizes. However, an initial assessment that allows us to identify the most suitable solution is the starting point for all the following ones. assessments.
