Egged on by a friend who passingly mentioned that residential doors are often an ignored part of a home's curb appeal these days, while also noting our shared affinity for European doors and MidCentury interior sliding doors, we've compiled this list of doors that buck the ho-hums with a range of style and utility...
  1. Slam Doors: love their ThreeStyle door, with three openings that follow the growth pattern of your child occupant (or the range in height of adults using it).
  2. Kidtropolis Door: Another door in door design, this one more obviously aimed at a child's room.
  3. 27estore Wenge Oak door: if you like stripes, this might be your door.
  4. Custom Metal Door: photographed in Soho by Sam Javanrouh, this entry door seems like a good deterrent for would-be robbers and is beautiful in an industrial sense.
  5. Circles Glass Door: we've rarely seen glass interior doors inside a residence, but we think it would be a cool option for a room that doesn't require strict privacy, but occasionally needs to be shut away from ambient noise (i.e. home office).
  6. Wippro Folding Doors: great idea for interiors where traditional doors take too much space. Wippro has a wide selection of doors that fold or turnstyle.
  7. Vintage 1950's Ranch Door: Found this unique door amongst a discussion about ranch style home remodeling.
  8. TruStile Doors: we're fond the Tuxedo model, which has a nautical, art deco look to it.
  9. Snickarper Doors: nevermind the snicker-inducing name, Snickarper has a wide selection of really unique interior and exterior doors. The ones designed by Olle Anderson are particulalry surreal and colourful.
  10. Fine Woodworks Doors: we're not sure how we feel about these doors. They're certainly not our cup of tea aesthetically. But there's something admirable in seeing doors hand constructed with real mahogany or cherry instead of the MDF variety that has become the standard. The designs are wildly unique, more artwork than design.
