The price directly depends on the quality and choice of the door material. The presence of a handle with a lock will increase the cost, but then you do not have to puzzle about the hook and the latch. At once get beauty and convenience.
The installation of the door is also worth considering when repairing.
After choosing the quality and moisture resistance, we proceed to design. The chosen door should look harmoniously in the same style, and not stand out, disturbing the color of the room and design.
Usually the doors to the bathroom next to the bathroom, they are better to choose the same. After all, the color must harmonize, both with the interior of the hallway, and with the bathroom. It is ideal to have a uniform style and color solution for all interior doors. Sometimes the hosts deliberately differentiate the rooms with flowers.
Advice! With a light interior of the bathroom and bathroom (light blue, peach tones), it is better to choose the same light doors (the colors "melted milk" or beige). Such doors will require regular maintenance, but visually just expand the space.
When choosing dark interiors: dark blue, dark green, dark gray or brown, the doors will be brownish shades. Although the door of dark colors will perfectly match and in the bathroom of light colors, for beauty it is recommended to add dark furniture.
With the choice of "high-tech", an increasingly popular style, even the door in black tones is organic in the bathroom.
The color of the door in the bathroom must harmonize with any detail of the chosen interior. It may not match the color scheme with the floor or the decoration of the walls, but it can be combined with furniture (cabinet, for example) or plumbing.
It is important that the door does not look "foreign" in the interior. Design is extremely important, often this is crucial when buying.
