Not only is this bedroom soothing in soft blues and neutrals, but the blended door prevents any distractions from this tranquil space. Notice how the designer achieved the look by continuing the architectural detailing down the door and painting it the same shade as the walls.
Look very closely at the corner panel to the right of the fireplace. Can you make out the blended door? Again, because the architectural detailing is continued over the door, you hardly notice the door at all.
Slanted walls can make a space feel constricted; the best way to counterbalance that is with a clean aesthetic that won’t confuse the eye. Here, a clean door is cut directly from the wooden wall. Without even a noticeable handle, you may walk clean past it.
A quick glance at this space and you may think, “Oh, what beautiful paneling surrounding the fireplace ...”
... only to be surprised that one of those panels is actually a door. Creating the same panel design on both sides of the fireplace balances the space, regardless of whether the left side opens as a door or not.
When the wood paneling used for the door is carried across the space, the eye reads it as a design element versus a door.
Another way to help the door blend in is by extending the material beyond the door itself. Here, the wood paneling is continued between the two doors and past their edges.
The track likely gives this door away, but nonetheless, a sliding door in the same material as the wall provides a unified appeal.
You could disguise your pantry door with a chalkboard on top and mimic cabinetry on the bottom. Visitors will be stunned when they go to write a note and the door falls open to an additional room.
