Design Dare: Bold, Colorful Interior Doors

Design Dare: Bold, Colorful Interior Doors

Painting your front door a nice color is pretty common practice, but doing the same to the ones inside your home can add unexpected color and personality.

Adding color to an interior door is a great, manageable project that can yield impressive — and fun — results. It can elevate a regular hollow core door or make an already solid door look extra fancy (check out Miles Redd's green leather doors in Image 8). Painting a pocket door, as in Image 5, is a great way to get a periodic shock of color. In small spaces, such as the studio in Image 6, painting the door the same color as the walls makes the room feel bigger because it's less visually broken up.

Is this a design dare you'd consider taking?
