Flush-to-wall doors are minimalist opening systems, whose frame is fitted inside masonry or plasterboard walls, with no external architraves.

The possible opening mechanisms

Flush-fitting doors can be fitted with a hinged, folding or pocket sliding mechanism inside the wall. In the former, there are also special models fitted with hinges allowing the leaf to be both pushed and pulled open (two-way opening); in the sliding version, the advantage is the absence of any space taken up inside the room.

Fundamental characteristics

This type of door is distinguished by:

  • the absence of any external finishes, i.e. edge covers, cornices and door jambs. The hinges are also invisible, as they are concealed;
  • specific sturdy and stable frame, which is encased into the wall (in masonry or plasterboard) entailing masonry work (so they are preferable in refurbishment projects);
  • a leaf that is flush-fitting with the wall, proving extremely elemental, clean-cut and near invisible if you want;
  • the only visible element is the handle and possibly the lock. To be even more integrated into the context, the classic knob can be replaced by a special push and pull opening mechanism (suitable for walk-in wardrobes, hatches and alcoves);

Dimensions are standard, but they can also be customised in height and width. In fact, you can adopt full-height or double-leaf solutions to create special interior architectural features. They are completed with an innovative skirting board that is flush-fitting with the wall.

Why choose this type of door

When is it worth choosing flush-fitting doors?
Let’s find out what the benefits are:

  • they are ideal for delimiting secondary spaces such as: alcoves, laundry rooms, pantries, storage under stairs, attics, fitted wall cabinets and walk-in wardrobes;
  • they create spaces with a modern and minimal design, distinguished by the utmost visual continuity. The absence of accessories and protruding elements makes these items of interior décor even more clean-cut;
  • they can blend in with the wall if they are painted in the same colour as the wall or covered with wallpaper, and on the contrary, they can prove extremely noticeable when they are painted in a contrasting colour instead;
  • in the sliding solution, they are also an excellent way to save space inside the rooms;
  • they are available in both the unfinished version (to be plastered), to be finished on site, as well as in wood or in glass (the latter are ideal to combine striking simplicity with brightness). Our catalogue includes a wide array of solutions (in laminate, solid wood, plate glass) and models, which differ in size, details and finishes.

The flush-fitting door: concealed or on show?

There are two styling possibilities offered by this type of door: total camouflage or on the contrary maximum visibility.
Here are some furnishing tips:

  • choose total integration with the wall when your goal is to conceal from view utility rooms, cloakrooms, technical spaces, hatches and other spaces you wish to keep away from curious eyes;
  • adopt the “concealed” version when there are a lot of doors close to one another along the wall. This will reduce the visual impact of these features and the continuity of the wall won’t be interrupted;
  • the version covered with wallpaper is extremely trendy. The mural décor stretches across the wall without interruption, creating an extraordinary scenic effect;
  • a flush-fitting door with a colour contrast, featuring sophisticated decorations, flashing lacquered finishes, glazed panels, or covered in wood, constitutes a nodal point of the interior design project and directs the visitor’s gaze. It is equally perfect and sophisticated when it is ordered full-height or in extra large versions, becoming an architectural “cut” that breaks the continuity of the wall.
