Rustic style is becoming more and more popular. Natural materials give the interior a cozy character. But which door to choose for your home or apartment in a rustic style?
Characteristics of rustic style
It is primarily simplicity, both in the overall arrangement, as well as in its details. For interiors arranged in this style are selected simple, often old wooden furniture with quite visible traces of use. The most important elements of decor in this style are traditional products and natural materials. The whole is usually complemented by a wooden floor with exposed grain.
Wood is a material that very often appears in rustic interiors. Its imperfect, but very elegant character gives the arrangement a unique character and introduces a cozy, homely atmosphere. Both exterior and interior doors should also present the elegant character of wood. More and more people choose wooden doors in light colors, to emphasize the natural, very visible grain.
