Flush-to-wall doors: the design evolution of traditional doors
The evolution of design: from traditional doors to flush-to-wall doors

What are flush-to-wall doors? They are doors that are entirely aligned on the wall they are built, with no recess or frames. Basically, it is the trending standard of new-age design, which is evolving from something optional to something highly preferred. Why preferred? Because as rebuilding and re-modeling become a part of everyday life, you discover the importance of more flexible and practical ways of interior design.

But wait, there’s more to the technical perspective. From an artistic approach, you realize the door becomes one with the wall and has a magic soul. What is an empty canvas to an artist reflecting his personal art, Linvisibile’s customized doors are the same for architects and designers. Linvisibile doors are more than just doors, they are pieces of art.

Let’s look at the bigger picture, what can you achieve with flush-to-wall doors that can not be obtained with traditional ones?

To begin with, you have an added value of an elegant look. This is mainly realized thanks to the absence of exposed hinges and frames, which may sound as a neutral factor but is actually a game changer. To see the dramatic difference, take a look at these two doors below. Above is a normal, traditional door with a regular outer frame and a panel which is not aligned entirely flush on the wall. Below, the frameless door, adjusting the panel on the wall at the same level, customized according to the measures. Can you see the difference?

Taking into account the products used while creating these doors that become complete with the wall, one doesn’t do justice calling them simply as “doors”. These exclusive products come in different forms and shape, but each contributing product is equally influential. We’re talking about hidden hinges and pivots, a baseboard system applied on the wall to assure the door panel is in perfect continuity with it, a boiserie system that coats the wall in the same material as the door panel, a flush fitting handle which makes it almost impossible to notice the presence of the door unless it’s wide open.

Having trouble conceptualising? Here is what it looks like after all these above are applied:

The concerns about the height, width and the need for any specific materials are over with the flush-to-wall doors, since the focal point of this type of doors is customisation. Despite the general conception that they are demanding to install, in reality they provide a solution to make your life easier. You don’t have to search and find the door for your project and use the best available option out of necessity. Flush-to-wall doors are created in accordance with any demanding requests of architects, project developers and private clients to create the best. And this comprises all processes from adjusting to specific wall measures to the application of specific materials.

The decorative dominance is evident when a flush-to-wall door system is a part of the décor, but it’s not the only benefit. The physical value it adds to your overall project comes with a significant return, more than you could get with a traditional door actually. The constructive method of the flush to wall door inserts the frame inside the wall, eliminating visible door posts and exposed hinges which allows to save space in smaller areas, and therefore use it for other decorative elements. Also, flush-to-wall doors are more stable and can stand against twisting. The way they’re built and their hidden technology, secures a good and clear joint without missing a millimetre gap between the wall and the panel.
