    Usually wev won't recommend doors having the same color as walls.

    However if the place is really small painting in the same color may make the place look bigger. Make sure to add s one contrasting lines to the doors to make it interesting.

    What's the reason for going with the same color though?

    Hi SC - thanks for your question. We generally like to "keep the eye moving", as a means of making spaces seem larger. This often means that doors and windows do have the same color paint as adjacent walls, particularly in more modern looking design. The more lines and shapes and colors are seen in an interior, the smaller it often seems.

    I hope this is helpful! Best of luck with your project.

Elements of Style added this to Did You Know About the 3 Types of Balance in Design?2 May 2018

Asymmetrical Asymmetrical balance makes for a more relaxed and lively interior space. This balance scheme uses a central line but relies more on the eye’s sense of balance to complete the design. Rather than having identical objects on either side of the central axis, asymmetrically balanced spaces have different objects of equal visual weight on either side of the line. In this living room, the left side of the serves as the central line. The height and weight of the sofa and cushions on the right balance the console on the left. The height of the fireplace surround also balances out the tall bookshelves.
