Transform any room – living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, dining room, family room, closets – by updating interior doors. Home décor styles continuously change. Rather than remodel entire spaces at once, consider updating a few elements at a time. Replacing interior doors, updating floors, and adding new finishes can take a poorly decorated space and turn it into something that’s beautiful and unique.
Types of Interior Doors Long Island
Wood or composite doors made from natural materials and heavy plastics can add dimension to any room in a home. Choose from various styles including smooth finishes to molded doors. Sliding doors, pocket doors, accordion doors, and traditional doors that swing in and out provide even more creative options.
Consider the size of the room or closet when choosing interior door styles. Sliding or accordion style doors create the illusion of more space. This is also important in rooms where traditional swing doors may bump into furniture.
Painting and Staining Interior Doors Long Island
For added glamour and appeal, paint or stain interior doors to complement wall color and trim. Stain or paint before or after hanging doors. For best results, do not install doorknobs until after painting or staining. Choose paint that does not absorb stains. This makes cleaning and maintaining doors much easier. Use warm water and soap to remove scuffs and stains from top of bottom of doors or to remove fingerprints.
After painting, add finishes such as doorknobs, clothing hooks, and doorstops. Choose finishes that match both the door and room theme. For a uniform look, use the same finishes for each door in the home. For a more eclectic look, choose a variety of antique doorknobs to give each door an individual feel.
