Plain and hollow doors don’t always inspire class. However, you can change this by a little well-placed trim. Finish up the trim with a coat of white paint to get the best results. 

This is probably one of those simple yet highly sophisticated projects that deliver great value. Don’t forget to spruce up the hardware including the door handles while you’re at it.

As the name suggests, wallpaper is normally meant for walls. But don’t let this limit your imagination. Wallpaper can still offer a great upgrade for interior doors. If you’re not planning a full remodeling soon, wallpaper can offer a quick fix that actually works. 


Try to avoid messy glue. There are some wallpaper options in the market that come with their own sticking mechanism. Always go for those.

Light neutral colors painted on one side of the door can also be perfect. Bright colors tend to make rooms feel large. They are, therefore, perfect for small spaces including bathrooms. A painted door can also be perfect in adding accent to any room. The colors on the door and the walls can combine well to deliver an outstanding decor experience. 

Consider Bi-Fold Doors

Bi-fold doors are normally used on closets. They can be beautiful and functional at the same time. The doors allow you to access closets that are very close to the bed. However, you can use simple shades to make them stand out. Bright colors are highly recommended. Try and also add lattice strips after painting. This will help to accentuate the door.

You don’t need any tools for this project. Just use some Washi tape to turn the inside edge of your door into a perfect decoration. The tape can also be reused and removed anytime. This allows you to experiment with various designs until you find something that works. You can choose a wide range of colors too. 

Using tape is probably one of the cheapest options you can go for to revamp your door’s look. But in case you don’t want to use the tape, pre-made vinyl cutouts should work, too.

This simple design would be perfect for a kid’s room. Try it on the closet door and see how it works out.  It’s a colorful addition that will rhyme very well with the bright shades often found in these rooms. 

The stripes on the door are created using painter’s tape. The tape is carefully placed to create a pattern. The door is then painted. The sealed tapes prevent the paint from dripping into the door. When the paint is fully dried, the tape is removed to leave behind an outstanding pattern.
