If you're still rockin' a plain jane door then you're missing an opportunity to add a ton of personality to your space. After all, it's a small, manageable, low-commitment area that's just begging for some color, pattern or texture. Here's the inspiration you need to add all three!


Just a quick color change can take your boring door to a whole, new level. Just look at the punch that these doors give to both interior and exterior spaces.

Bold red! Thanks, Clare Bock.


If you're feeling even bolder, try adding a touch of kicky pattern to your door. Grab some painter's tape and go crazy creating anything from simple color-blocking to a more elaborate, graphic design.
