Interior design trends are shifting and in 2021 designers are seeing the ever-popular accent wall fading away in favor of colorfully painted interior doors. Painted interior doors, much like painted front doors, are a simple detail that can really elevate the aesthetic and appeal of your home. This small pop of color is a simple way to add character without the commitment. Paint color trends for 2021 suggest that the look of painted doors when paired with neutral walls and lighter surrounding trim, can provide a striking and dramatic look—without the dramatic price of repainting an entire wall or room.
To Paint or Not to Paint
Maybe you’re ready to commit to painting your doors, or maybe you’re on edge wondering if adding door color is right for your home. An unexpected hue adds even more style and personality to your home. Painted interior doors break up large sections of white, give emphasis to a focal point of the room, and add a pop of color in an understated, yet impactful way. Painted doors are also easily changed, without a complete overhaul of the entire space.
Choosing the Right Color
As with any decision regarding paint colors, consider the overall theme and atmosphere you hope to create. Bright colors add energy to a space, while neutrals and muted tones evoke a sense of calmness and comfort. Black interior doors give both a dramatic and understated feeling and is the simplest color to start with.
Interior Door Color Trends 2021
There is no distinct “trendiest color” of the year for interior doors—anything goes. From the all-time favorite classics of creamy whites, grays, and browns to bold dark shades the painted door trend is versatile enough for any home.
Pastels– Pastel shades can be a stunning accent in combination with furniture, décor, and hardware chosen from the same palette resulting in a light and peaceful atmosphere.
Dark Shades– Black is always trending, especially for interior doors, and in designs that focus on more industrial glass and iron elements in the space. Dark blues and greens add richness and provide the space with depth and character.
Colors– Interior door color trends of 2021 suggest a wide scale of color from vibrant shades to muted tones and everything in between. Choose more energetic shades such as reds, corals, and oranges or the vividness of yellows and rosy hues. Choose ocean blues combined with neutrals or muted natural greens and earth tones to create soothing, relaxing spaces.
