Although the open concept, where the kitchen, dining room an living room are continuous, is the “in” style for most houses, some home owners still want privacy. There are also other rooms in the house the necessitate doors, like bedrooms and bathrooms. Rather than picking a dreary, plain wood door, try finding a door that can further the ambiance you’ve set throughout your house. This can be done with a variety of materials, colors, designs and layouts… it’s all up to you to choose which one suits you best and then install it. This will create a one-of-a-kind focal point along hallways that your guests won’t expect, as they’ll be looking for pictures or paint color schemes to grab their attention. That is why you should consider switching up your indoor doors to add flair to your home.
Above are just a few pieces of inspiration that you can use for your home. Mixing elements, like wood and metal, together can create a sleek, modern vibe that still has a sense of comfort. These are great statement pieces that can accent any size doorframe. You can create unique designs with the metal and wood as well. If you’d rather keep the same material and color but want to switch it up, then the second image may be of use. Try creating dimension or texture with different layers. For those that want some privacy but still want some light to come in, then create a lattice design that has glass (see-through or not) inside the negative spaces. This will let light in, but let you feel privacy as well. Another great idea is the sliding door. This can be done with metal or wood, and has a neat aura about it.
