Are you looking for a way to spruce up your interior?
While poring through paint colors and furniture catalogs, you may want to consider interior door design too.
Simply changing out a current door for something completely different can change the whole feel of a room.
And if you’re in the midst of designing a brand new home, you’ll want to put some thought into your choice for doors.
Here are some options that are trending in 2020:
1. French Doors
One of the nice things about French doors is the way they separate rooms but still allow light to flow freely between them.
Plus, their upscale appearance adds a touch of class to any room design.
To add even more elegance, consider arch-top French doors. Their graceful curves deliver an element of vintage character.
2. Wood Door with Metal Inserts
For something a little sturdier than French doors, a solid wood door with an interesting metal detail will also allow light to flow from room to room. Yet, it will provide more privacy.
The metal insert can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose and it adds a nice decorative touch to an otherwise plain door.
3. Pivoting or Wing Wall Doors
If contemporary is more your style, you can add to your design a pivoting glass door that appears to almost float in place.
Ideally, such a door is designed to provide an uninterrupted flow in your home. It’s sleek and efficient – shutting flush to the wall and requiring no jamb, framing, or molding.
Another consideration for the ultra-contemporary home would be a wing wall door that blends seamlessly into a wall so you hardly even know it’s a door.
4. Pocket Doors
When it comes to rooms challenged for space, pocket doors are a great solution. They don’t require any clearance to open and close and can be designed with or without glass panels to allow light to pass from room to room.
Plus, pocket doors conveniently disappear when you have no need for them.
5. Folding Doors
If you have a small space that doesn’t get much use, you could fit it with folding doors and turn it into an office space.
Folding doors can be customized to fit any internal space so that when they’re closed, they become a focal point. Then unfold them to expose the workspace.
6. Sliding Doors
When it comes to both functionality and style, these doors are it.
Installed on rollers, they’re simple to slide open and closed. And they take less space than a traditional door.
For something more old-school, you can choose a repurposed wood door. Or go with Asian inspired sliding doors that with wooden window-like panes that are reminiscent of shoji screens.
7. Industrial Metal Door
For a sleek and modern feel, there’s a wide variety of options for industrial metal doors.
From a sliding steel door to metal doors fitted with panes of glass, you’re bound to find something both utilitarian and stylish.
