Are your boring internal doors letting down the look of your property? Or maybe it’s just time for a change. Doors take up a lot of potential interior design space and should be given the same treatment as the rest of the room when it comes to a home makeover. So what can you do to reinvent your interior doors?
Updating the door handles is one way to make a big difference quite cost effectively. Not only can you upgrade to something more stylish, new handles might also be more practical for your lifestyle and easier to use.
Create a double door
If you have two standard doors together in your property, installing a pair maker can transform them into a door pair or double door for a coordinated look throughout your home.
A lick of paint
A classic and easy way to update your existing doors is to grab a paintbrush. Whether it’s just a repaint of the same colour or if you’re venturing into something different, a fresh coat of paint is one of the simplest ways to refresh your interior doors.
Get creative with wallpaper
An interesting alternative to paint, patterned wallpaper can be used to cover sections of your door such as panels, or even to create faux panels on a plain door. Embossed or textured wallpaper makes a great feature too and can be painted with the rest of the door for a more integrated look.
A new door
It’s probably the last option to consider if you’re on a budget but sometimes the only solution is to just get a replacement. Replacing your internal doors gives you the most creative freedom to get the exact look you want and you can even upgrade to doors with other features such as glazing to let more natural light flow through your home.
Choosing this option also takes away the stress of completing the work yourself as you can rely on an expert fitter to replace your doors for you.
