Doors are an incredible way of expressing your personality. It’s the first thing that your visitors or neighbours will see, and an enthralling and stylish door can be a great way to flaunt your creativity. Usually, we tend to ignore our doors and only get them re-polished periodically. The wall colors could change, the furniture could too but the doors, more or less, remain the same.
But it’s time to look at doors as an essential element of your interiors. Chuck the primitive and give your doors the spotlight they deserve. It truly is the difference between nice and fine interiors. If you still can’t wrap your head around this fact, then have a look at the gorgeous inspiration of door designs we’ve picked out for you.
Classic red door
A classic red color door can never go out of style. Having a red door makes a powerful statement and is also believed to be a symbol of energy in Feng Shui. The front door is considered as the ‘Mouth of Chi’ through which energy enters. And with a red door, you’re definitely exuding a joyful, cheery and welcoming vibe.
French doors provide excellent visual stimuli in rooms where privacy is not a concern. They are visually very light when compared to wooden doors. Affixing them to the entryway of the living or dining area, allows you to take a peek at what’s happening on the other side of the house. Frosted French doors, instead, give you the best of both worlds – visual lightness and privacy.

Innovatively executed, this door is clearly unconventional from the rest of the doors that we see. We love the idea of using nailheads in a beautiful pattern.
