Interior Door Design Ideas – Take a look at these wow-worthy interior doors, and open up to new ideas and styles for your home.
Glass French Door
Like windows, doors are a key part of any wall’s composition. Here, a beautiful French door separates the nursery from the hallway, while still letting light flow freely between rooms. Incorporating a French door into a living space allows you to add a little old-fashioned charm.
Sliding Barn Door
This door pulls double duty as a wall. A white sliding barn door functions perfectly in this small space, separating the bedroom from the living room. The white door is hung on barn-door rollers, making it easy to slide open and closed.
Bifold Dining Room Doors
White bifold doors, once leading to an enclosed porch, now create a welcoming entrance into a traditional-meets-modern dining room. The doors help retain the Cape-cod influenced home’s original charm.
Arch-Top Interior Doors
Arch-top French doors offer an elegant introduction into any room of the house. Simple trim and graceful curves signal a flair for vintage character.
Asian-Inspired Sliding Doors
French doors aren’t the only light-sharing solution for interior spaces. Reminiscent of shoji screens, these sliding doors with wooden windowlike panes blend perfectly with the modern cabinetry in this kitchen.
Paned-Glass Pocket Doors
Pocket doors also conveniently disappear when you don’t need them. This paned-glass interior door mimics the home’s exterior windows. Leading from the living room, the pocket doors open on to an airy sunroom with casual dining and sitting space.
Pocket Doors for Small Spaces
Pocket doors are the perfect solution for small-space rooms. Since they don’t open into any room, they don’t need any clearance to open and close. A single pocket door with glass panels allows a laundry room and kitchen to share light while creating separation to preserve cleanliness and organization.
Wooden Door with Metal Detail
A sturdy wooden interior door features an elaborate metal grill insert that allows light to stream from room to room. Here, metal inserts transmit light, and add a decorative touch, without sacrificing privacy between the bathroom and bedroom in this master suite.
Frosted-glass Pantry Doors
The see-through quality of frosted glass adds dimension to this sliding pantry door. But the frosted glass also obscures pantry contents, so the pantry doesn’t have to be kept too tidy. Sleek, sliding doors create a sense of drama in a room and also serve a practical function: when one is opened, it doesn’t interrupt traffic flow.
Hidden Pantry Doors
These dining room doors open up to a butler’s pantry. But when they’re closed, the tall double doors blend right in with the walls of the dining room. This visual trick essentially hides the doors, allowing them to integrate into the surroundings.
Industrial Metal Door
An industrial metal door opens to a pantry (and kitchen storage area) in this sleek and modern kitchen, featuring a rectangular pane of glass. A workmanlike stainless steel handle completes the look. Painted yellow, this door stands out as a decorative (as well as utilitarian) element of the kitchen.
Industrial-Inspired Sliding Door
A custom-made glass-and-steel door is the perfect portal for this contemporary home. Hung on barn tracking, the sliding-glass door becomes a decorative element on the wall when open. When closed, it offers privacy from the adjoining room while still allowing light to stream in. And because barn-track doors don’t swing open like a regular door, they’re great space savers.
Industrial-space Interior Door
This custom made glass-and-steel door is the perfect portal for this warehouse-space home. Hung on barn tracking, the sliding-glass door becomes a decorative element on the wall when open. When closed, it offers privacy from the adjoining room while still allowing light to stream in. And because barn-track doors don’t swing open like a regular door, they’re also great space-savers.
Pivoting Glass Door
This modern door seems to almost float in place. The pivoting door is made of sandblasted glass and is designed to shut flush to the wall, without a jamb, framing, or molding. Sleek, efficient and modern, a jambless interior door adds to the uninterrupted flow in this contemporary home.
A ribbed-glass pane adds texture to a wooden pocket door frame. The horizontal pattern in the glass allows light to pass, while the view from both sides is distorted. Although this interior door leads to a pantry, the door gives the illusion of a bigger space beyond.
This wooden door, suspended from a barn-style track, creates a sliding entryway between the formal dining room and kitchen. The door is inset with beaded board, which suits the flavor of the entire house. Black hardware and hinges add visual interest.
When closed, this master bathroom door appears to simply be a wall. This modern approach to an interior door creates a seamless look for the architecturally modern bath.
Chic Built-In Doors
Interior doors create an illusion of space beyond, even when they just open up to a china cabinet. Doors like these are the perfect way to conceal storage and to trick guests into thinking a space is larger.
Customized Pantry Doors
Paint, fabric and chicken wire are the materials used to create these customized pantry doors. The bottom panel is painted trompe l’oeil delft tiles. The top panel is inset with chicken wire and patterned fabric. Antique glass door pulls top off the look.
Double Pocket Doors
Traditional pocket doors are both beautiful and functional. Here, painted wooden doors provide instant privacy when pulled closed and a barrier-free entryway when slid into the walls.
Folding Doors for a Hideaway Office
A small alcove becomes an instant home office when fitted with folding doors. Here, dark paneled interior doors fold back to expose the workspace. When closed, they form an attractive focal point for the wall. Folding doors can be customized to fit any internal space.
12 Colorful Doors on the Inside
Here are colorful doors for your interior door design ideas:
This Palm Spring abode channels the city’s laid back vibe perfectly. We did the Kyle Bunting Rug inside the bright door (it’s where we found the photo).
Seattle architects Lauren and Kyle Zerbey of the blog Chezerby installed sliding doors painted Benjamin Moore Thunderbird as a privacy solution for their some-time guest room.
This image hails from Living Etc. a couple of years back, though it was Apartment Therapy that brought to our attention this little detail: the door’s edge is painted red. It adds a surprising accent that is visible only when the door is ajar.
This Pacific Heights neighborhood townhouse by San Francisco firm Feldman Architecture has a clean palette of white walls and dark wood, except for the punctuation of the chartreuse front door.
Los Angeles-based firm Bestor Architecture used a bright red barn door to close off the plywood kitchen and family room from another space. The black iron hardware pops against the colored wood.
LASC Studio, a Copenhagen-based office founded in 2007 by the Swedish/German architect Jonas Labbé and Dutch architect Johannes Schotanus, designed this Swedish home, dubbed Summer House. The turquoise shelving, windowsill, moldings, and door provide brightness, especially during dark winter months.
One of our favorites, this sedate blue door works in conjunction with the modern shelving divider. The color is technically a primary, but almost works as a neutral.
This acid green entry door makes a crisp statement against the plain black wall and sofa.
Woo and Cheltz, a married couple with five kids, blog about fixing up their 100-year old house on Penelope’s Pad. This is their dining room; they painted the door green earlier this year.
We discovered the blog My Pink Door, written by Jenny from Brisbane, Australia through Jen Ramos at Made by Girl. This is indeed Jenny’s own home, complete with bubble gum pink door.
For a pale pink take, we love artist Lisa Grues’ bathroom door (though the handle’s mighty high!) You can find more photos of her home, as well as her studio, on Dos Family.
