Do you want to give a chance to paint your house and you do not dare with the entire walls? One possibility to transform your rooms with paint without going for walls and ceilings is to start with the doors. They are an element that is usually quite boring since, in general, all the doors inside a house are the same. Do we give them their personality with a bit of paint?
Interior doors painted in solid colors
The first and most direct way is to paint it entirely in a different color. Vivid tones will always have the most impact, but subtler colors will also look great. In houses with dark doors and little light, painting them all white brings a lot of light, and if you dare to create contrast, what do you think of this cheerful yellow?
Doors with a painted frieze
Another awe-inspiring idea, which we have already told you about along with the trend of half-painting the walls, is to continue the same frieze that we have painted on the wall above the door. Contrast colors for a dramatic effect, like the one in the photo, or use two more similar shades for a subtle effect. And the line doesn’t have to be completely straight!
Interior doors with the painted side
For the more discreet… we love this subtle way of adding color just to the edge of the door. While it is closed, nobody will notice the difference from the rest of the entries in your house, but when you open it, that hidden touch of color makes the difference. A home with each door of a different color on the side will not lose its elegance, but it will be much more fun.
Color frames for your interior doors
Another discreet change is the one we show you in the next photo. If the door, instead of being smooth, has different panels, you can “frame” them with color so that the different shapes stand out. Even if the entry is not relieved, you can give it the conditions you want yourself with masking tape or a template.
Two-tone diagonal doors
A technique similar to the second one that we showed you from the frieze is this one, which combines two colors more informal. Instead of drawing a horizontal line that separates them, divide the door more randomly and use two colors as enjoyable as turquoise and light green. It may be a standard door from the outside, but more than one will be surprised when entering the house.
Interior doors with geometric design
Geometric shapes and graphic motifs are a trend; why not reflect them on your doors? Protect the areas you don’t want to paint and choose the right paint for the job. With spray paint, you will have it ready in no time, and with the finish, you prefer matte or gloss.
Decorate your interior doors with chalkboard paint
One of our favorites, especially for the door of a kitchen or a children’s room, is this one painted with chalkboard paint. Even for the inside of the front door of your house, this will make sure you don’t forget anything when you go out!
How are the doors of your house? Would you dare to paint them with any of these ideas?
