Have you ever considered your interior doors to be a way to add some style to your home? Many people consider them to be nothing more than a practical home element. In fact, there are ways to make those doors into something that enhances the look of your home. Here are a few ideas to consider.
Your interior door installation doesn't necessarily mean you have to stick with hinged designs. Consider the idea of investing in what appears to be an old barn door. It can be painted but why not have it stained and sealed so the wood grain stands out? With the right hardware mounted over the door frame, you have a sliding door that functions as a focal point whether the door is open or closed.
How About an Upholstered Door?
Painting or staining the doors inside are the most common solutions, but you are not an common homeowner. Have you thought about having the doors upholstered? Go with a durable material that resists staining and is easy to clean. Vinyl is one option you can consider for the door upholstery.
Remember that while the material itself is enough to add something different to the room, you can take things one step further and dress up the door with the use of decorative tacks. The tacks allow you to create just about any type of design you want on the door facing.
If you are trying to achieve a specific look to the space, consider the color of the material and the tacks carefully. Maybe you are going for a contemporary look and using a lot of black elements and accessories. In this scenario, consider black leather or vinyl for the door and accent it with gold tacks. The finished door will have a lot of impact visually, provide the up to date look you are trying to achieve, and help unify the rest of the room. As a bonus, the light padding plus the upholstery will make the door more sound proof.
Wallpaper Works Too!
Who says wallpaper is just for walls? As a thrifty homeowner, you already know that wallpaper can be used to customize lampshades and makes great lining for the kitchen shelves. One idea you have yet to explore is applying wallpaper to some of those inside doors.
For the best effect, use a pattern that picks up one of the primary colors you are using in the room and combines it with one or more of the secondary colors. The pattern can be as bold or as subtle as you like. If you choose the right pattern, the wallpaper will help to visually connect those other colors in the space and provide an even flow throughout the room.
Remember that you can carry this idea over to the windows. Along with doing the door, it's possible to cover the wooden elements of the window sashes and create a splash of color. The result is a room where the windows and doors feel more like intentional elements in the room and not merely features.
As with the upholstery, invest in wallpaper that will not stain easily and that you can clean off with ease. Remember to trim carefully and use an adhesive that will keep the paper in place until you are ready to make a change.

We just wanted to write to say thanks because the window quality is great and your helpful craftsman and professional installers made the entire experience wonderful. We only wish we could have this experience with all of our renovation projects.
We recently moved to our new house and needed to do some repairs and renovations. Your company was recommended by our very pleased friends. The windows look amazing and the installation job Richard did was first class.
It’s not everyday that I take the time to email a contractor… but my wife insisted! You guys did a great job and you kept it quick and quiet. We’ve got a newborn who sleeps often and your man did a good job not waking her up. Cheers.
We had done our share of research before finally deciding to go with your company and we must say that EuroSeal really had the greatest value. Guess we can chalk it up to working with a manufacturer.
It is our pleasure to say thanks for a great job done by your company. Luke and his colleague did a lovely job and they were very well mannered. It was a pleasure having them around.
We especially appreciated the help of your craftsman in choosing the appropriate style and colour for our first home. In the end, the windows look beautiful and I’m extremely happy with how easy they are to clean.
We damaged one of the external hinges a month ago, and your company’s prompt and efficient handling of the service call was impressive! We appreciate how quickly your company sent over a representative to fix the problem.
