7 Scandinavian Interior Design Door Ideas For Classy Entryways

Scandinavian Interior Design French Doors

We often tend to ignore doors while refurbishing and decorating our space (or think of them last), missing our opportunity to add just the finishing touch rooms need.

If you’re someone who’s all about Scandinavian interior design, I have compiled a list of the top 7 Scandinavian door ideas to adorn your interior and entryways.

Let’s get started!

1. Sleek White Door With Clean Lines

Scandinavian interior design is all about functionality and simplicity, so the most straightforward (and classy) option is a plain, white door with clean, simple lines. Bonus points if you pick gold hardware!

If you’re renovating your house, you may want to upsize the hallway and entrance portion. This translates to larger doors, allowing more light to enter when they open — a prime factor of Scandinavian style.

2. Wooden Door

Scandinavian designers swear by light-colored wood, with a prime example being oak. And hence, solid oak doors are a contemporary approach to wooden decor. Finally, complement the look with satin chrome hardware.

3. Sliding doors

A sliding door might not be that popular in more traditional apartments unless renovated but more popular in newer dwellings in Scandinavia or in renovated homes. This is such a smart space-saving tip, which is often something one wants to think about in a city living.

4. Glass Door With Steel Frame

Another very minimalist choice is opting for a glass door — with the added benefit of allowing in more natural light. For the frame, you can use steel to create a contemporary look. Both steel and glass are celebrated materials in Scandinavian design!

Bonus: Such sleek doors can also make the home more appealing for selling.

5. Door With Frosted Glass

Breathe life into your room by installing a door with frosted glass. Use white — or forest green for a punch of color — for the wooden area, and use frosted glass for the inner glass panels.

The fact that the glass is incorporated creates much more of a visually roomy feeling than opting without it!

6. White door with panels

Simple and traditional that will work in a contemporary space is adding a white door with frames. This gives the door and the room a tailored feeling which to me feels very elegant and timeless.

I am especially loving the juxtaposing color of this white door in the photos and the darker walls, combined with the warmer tone in the wood dining set.

7. French doors

Breathe life into your room by installing French doors. Go for white doors with frames and you will have french doors that are compatible with Scandinavian decor.

Adding french doors to your space separates two spaces while making room for a visual connection and allowing the feeling of more space with the wise door opening!
