Just as easily as you decorate exterior doors, you can dress up the ones inside as well. Choose decorations that match your interior design decor, or change everything out with the seasons, for holidays or for other special occasions. The doors in your house can be utilized as extra display areas or organizational spaces. Once you start thinking of them as additional wall space, they are sure to be come an important part of your home design scheme.
Things You'll Need
- Decorative hooks
- Wreaths and other decorations
- Note boards
- Organizational items
Paint your doors on both sides to match the rest of the decor in the room. Use a solid color that complements the rest of your interior design or create a mural--- freehand or with stencils---that adds an additional piece of artwork to the space.
Tape up favorite pictures or children's artwork. Use it as display space for seasonal holiday cards, recent photographs or inspirational newspaper clippings.
Create custom room signs to decorate interior doors. Make one for each bedroom door announcing whose it is or theme signs like "Ladies & Gents" for the bathroom door.
Install decorative hooks from which to hang seasonal wreaths and other decorations. For example, wind chimes or bells hung on the inside of the front door makes a pretty sound whenever someone gets home or a collection of beads from holiday parties adds a festive look.
Hang up note boards on everyone's door to leave small messages around the house. Paint custom pegboard, use fabric or buy markers for white-boards that match your interior design scheme. Buy a note board that is magnetized to display a collection of theme magnets or other decorative items.
Use other organizational items to decorate interior doors. Clear plastic shoe holders can be used to display collections, such as shoes, sea glass, rocks or seashells. Hang pretty baskets, mail holders and other containers for added storage and visual interest.
Replace old doorknobs and hinges with decorative ones to add even more visual interest. Install ones that fit in with the rest of the new decorations on your interior doors.
