The entry to your home is the moment where you set the tone for your visitors. It’s more than just a door. As they step inside, you’re giving them a feel for how you like to live, and a sense of your personality. When you’re replacing your door, give some thought to the rest of the entryway.
Framing the door
This superb double entryway with interior sliding doors allows the living room to be closed off for privacy. The inner doors can be opened to provide a magnificent view and to make the room feel larger.
Don’t be afraid to use color
This is another superbly framed door, leading into a unique hallway filled with carefully chosen furniture and decor. The bright yellow walls reflect the natural light from the glass surrounding the actual door, creating a welcoming, memorable entryway.
Dealing with small spaces
This narrow apartment hallway can feel claustrophobic, especially as it requires a solid door for privacy and security. Using a light-colored door, with a large mirror to one side, gives this space a much needed touch of brightness and makes it feel larger.
Let the light through
Glass interior doors allow the light to push through the house and can brighten up a narrow hallway. As above, the addition of a large mirror helps make the space feel larger and makes the most of the light.
When you’re choosing a new door, treat it as an opportunity to rethink your entire entryway, and select a style of door that will fit with your overall design plans.
