Lacquered interior doors
Door lacquers are very resistant, durable and with a smooth finish. The cost and quality are quite variable, as they depend not only on the quality of the products used, but also on the number of layers applied, which can vary from at least 3, to 8 or more.
If we search the internet, we can see how the expression white lacquer was generalized to any white finish on a door. Even if it’s just a matter of applying nail polish. It is a mistake. We are talking about products with different chemical compositions, applications and performances.
White was, is and will probably be the most used color in this area. It is a very versatile color that can be incorporated into almost any decorative style.
The best seller is the plain white door. Probably the reason is the price, since when the budget is a little higher, they are sought with simple frets, some vertical or horizontal lines, or even with crystals.
But not everything is white. With this technique you can get any color you want. Although for something completely personalized, we must be willing to assume an extra cost. From what we can find on the market, in addition to the ubiquitous white, cream, ivory or gray colors.

On the solid wood exterior doors, we find a range of different colors. Dark colors are more used and the slatted aspect (parallel tables) predominates.
Giving Color with Dyes
There is also a growing demand for those who want to add a touch of color without losing the identity of the wood. For these we find stained wood and later varnished.
Here we find important contrasts in terms of color. The demand varies from dark, almost black, and gray tones, to cream tones.
French doors are a classic that remains. They are ideal for favors the passage of light and can be easily integrated into any environment thanks to the versatility and possibilities they offer.
They are mainly used in the exit to patios, terraces and balconies. And also corridors where you want to get a lighting advantage.
