Dark timbers can complement a stark minimalistic, light interior within a home offering a stunning contrast with the rich dark texture of either a Wenge or Walnut door. Most homes have white architrave and skirting and changing them over can often be an unnecessary and costly job. The Portici Walnut Door shown in the image below portrays how darker timber doors look great with this contrasting white architrave and skirting as it really helps to frame the door.

Combining real aluminium with darker timbers can help create the real wow factor that every home strives for. It really does elevate the door to another level particularly when complemented by a matching contemporary door handle.
