How to Decorate a Doorway With No Door


Sometimes in the course of renovations, a door is removed and never replaced. The frame, the molding and the space are still there, but there is no door. If your space has a doorway without a door, decorate it to add an interesting touch to your room. How you choose to adorn your doorway depends on the style of your space and your own personal preferences, so look for pieces and colors that make you grin.

  • Find two candle stands -- tall, skinny stands meant to hold candles -- and place them on either side of the door frame. Place a flameless candle on each stand to minimize the chance of fire.

  • Hang a curtain rod above the door frame on the opposite side. Add matching curtain hooks halfway down the frame on the wall. Don't choose a dull brass shade when you can pick one that complements your space.

  • Hang filmy curtains from the rod. Make sure they're long enough to almost sweep the floor. When you want easy access from one side to another, pull the curtains back into the hooks. When you want privacy, leave the curtains down.

  • Hammer a love bead holder into the middle top of the frame. Love beads come in many shapes and colors; they're a fun throwback to the '70s.

  • Find a small decorative wooden or metal piece and place it above the door frame and below the ceiling. A copper heart above a bedroom or a pair of crossed wooden spoons over a kitchen entrance will liven up your doorway.

Tips & Warnings

  • Love beads tangle easily. Consider adding a curtain hook for love beads, too.
  • If you use real candles, avoid the curtains. A space with curtains on one side and candles on the other is a fire waiting to happen.
