    Design an Eye-Catching Solution with Our Door Company in Kansas City

    Selecting custom wall panels or a barn door for your home is an opportunity to highlight your personal style. Because these elements serve as points of visual interest, you can let loose with creativity and have fun creating a solution that aligns with your unique tastes.

    Our Kansas City door company designs barn doors and wood paneling for walls to suit a wide range of preferences. Whether your aesthetic is more traditional, modern, or somewhere in between, we have options that look right at home in a variety of spaces.

    Design isn’t the only way to customize the newest addition to your home, though. Color is also a powerful tool for showcasing who you are and what you like. Choosing a complementary or contrasting hue allows you to achieve a truly one-of-a-kind look that reflects your personality.

    In this blog, we’ll cover our paint and stain options for custom wall panels and barn doors and how to determine the best shade for your space.

    Our Custom Wall Panel Options

    Our custom wall panels are available in reeded, fluted, and slatted styles, adding welcome texture and dimension to a room. When you settle on a design you like, you can choose from the following material options:

    • Unfinished MDF
    • Primed white MDF
    • Unfinished white oak
    • Unfinished birch

    Once your wall panels are installed, the seams and nail holes must be caulked. For this reason, we don’t pre-paint or stain our wood paneling for walls. However, this gives you complete freedom on color. Paint glides smoothly and easily on our MDF panels, while our white oak and birch solutions look stunning with a simple clear coat or stain of your choice, letting the wood’s natural beauty shine through.

    Keep in mind that if you opt for our unfinished MDF paneling, you will need to prime the surface before painting.

    Paint and Stain Selections for Our Custom Barn Doors Near You

    There are seemingly endless color possibilities with our barn doors. Like our custom wall panels, we offer unfinished and primed options that allow you to take a more hands-on approach to your project.

    That being said, we offer several paint colors and stains for your convenience, so all you have to do when your barn door arrives is hang it.

    Our paint options include:

    • Pure White
    • Antique White
    • Classic Sand
    • Pussywillow
    • Chelsea Gray
    • Evergreen Fog
    • Hale Navy
    • Urbane Bronze
    • Iron Ore
    • Tricorn Black

    If your heart is set on a different hue, you can also request a custom paint color for an additional charge.

    Our stain options are intended for our white oak and rustic alder doors. Choose from:

    • Clear Coat
    • Driftwood
    • Golden Oak
    • Provincial
    • Dark Walnut
    • Briarsmoke
    • Kona
    • Ebony
    • Sunbleached
    • Weathered Gray
    • Carbon Gray

    Choosing Your Perfect Color

    Picking out a color you’ll love now and years down the road is easier said than done. Before settling on a shade for your custom wall panels or barn door, consider mocking up a mood board to visualize what you want to accomplish. You can also ask yourself questions like:

    • How would I describe my interior style?
    • What kind of vibe do I want my space to give off?
    • What colors am I typically drawn to?
    • What colors am I already using in my home?
    • Do I want my wall paneling or barn door to complement my existing palette? Or do I want it to pop?

    One of the best ways to decide on a hue is to see your options in person. If you’re located within the metro area, we encourage you to schedule an appointment to visit our door company in Kansas City. When you arrive at our showroom, we’ll walk you through all we have to offer and help you conceptualize your design. Along with measurements of your space, it’s a good idea to bring any flooring or paint samples you’d like to try to coordinate with your custom wall panels or barn door.

    Not in Kansas City? That’s OK! We make it easy to order samples of our paint and stain selections online.
