Traditional vs. Contemporary Interior Doors: What’s Your Flavor?

Ensure you’re setting the right tone with your new door installation

So - you’ve been contemplating a new interior door for a while now. Or, the idea just sprung itself upon you and you’re ready to make that change. Either way, good for you! Installing a new interior door can be an exciting process – but it can also be a challenging decision.

Before deciding on the colour of your door, you should decide whether a traditional or a contemporary style interior door will be the best choice for your home.

Is your interior décor more on the traditional side, or more on the modern side?

A home or room will typically reflect either a traditional or a modern design style. While it’s not written in stone that a style skewing more one way should absolutely incorporate the appropriate door style to match, it generally does work out better when the styles agree.

However, there are traditional doors with certain features that can compliment a modern interior setting, as well as contemporary doors that feature embellishments or aspects of traditional design for a seamless integration. So if you’re confident in your design skills and think you can pull together a mix-and-match approach, go for it! Just be sure you have a good understanding of how it will look before scheduling your installation. Our custom door experts are happy to help you ensure you’re making the right decision before going through with it, and can provide design recommendations as needed. “Doors” is essentially our second language – and it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Personalize your home with a door you adore

Traditional wooden doors incorporate beautiful detailing and tend to embody a very rustic, classic or Victorian elegance, and can really help set the tone for a sumptuous and luxurious space. On the other hand, modern doors tend to have much simpler, straight-line designs – and while still very capable of exuding elegance, look quite sleek and geometric. With so many styles and colours to choose from, the right interior door can truly transform and personalize your space into one you’ll be so proud to call home.
