Black doors

Over the last few years black doors have become very popular, even more so than anthracite grey doors. It could be the trend for black cladding and windows but it could also be the desire to avoid white at all costs!

It turns out black suits everything. Bricks, cladding and windows in black, beige or red work well with any black door.  It is elegant, classic and contemporary all at the same time. 

Have a good look at the projects below which give a good indication of how to work black doors into your project.

1. Black cladded house with Terano black front door

These beautiful houses were inspired by surrounding farm buildings and have a funky contemporary look. Our Terano E80 doorsets were chosen to keep a very uniform look along the frontage so that the cladding feels uninterrupted.  The Terano doorset also allows light into the hallway.   Eventhough the doors slightly disappear into the cladding, you can still see make out that they are there and that it is the entrance. 

The houses are three bedrooms but appear bigger due to the big vaulted hallway and contemporary features like polished concrete flooring and white walls.

2. TG Designer homes: black Terano doors

This project by TG Designer Homes is pretty special, a suburban cluster of homes with black charred cladding and pared down concrete floors with Urban Front Terano E80 doorsets in black to finish off that contemporary look.

Uniformity works well here with it’s light coloured brick, charred cladding and black windows.  The black on black adds depth and a stylish edge which helps highlight the oak bench areas in the entrances. These images also demonstrate the importance of a door from the inside and out as well as how design and detail of a door affect the different rooms leading from a hallway.
