Many new builds have wooden doors covered in white gloss. This gives the doors a smart finish, and it means you have the freedom to choose any wall colour because white goes with absolutely everything. They look especially good against a grey wall, and if you do decide on this colour for your home, you’re best of making sure all of your cupboard doors and loft hatches are finished in the same paint too.

Some say white can be boring, but doors aren’t designed to be exciting, they’re designed to work well with the theme of your home, and you have the freedom to pick any colour theme when you opt for white. We recommend this finish for your bedroom and bathroom doors, and we have to say it’s a lot more contemporary than an oiled oak door.
