Looking for a quick project that will transform the look of your home? Try giving one – or more – of your interior doors an easy makeover that makes a big impact. Here are a few of our favorite ideas for making those boring old doors pop.

1. Get the modern farmhouse look

Modern farmhouse style and barn doors remain popular, and there are plenty of ways to add an original twist to the look. Try a double sliding barn door or one that’s “living.” To keep it from looking country kitsch, stick with neutral colors and more modern and industrial hardware.

2. Add drama with black doors

A quick way to make a dramatic statement is by painting your doors black. The look is both classic and luxurious and will look like you spent a fortune on expensive doors. Finish the look off with either Satin Brass or Matte Black hardware. Here's one of our favorites from Our Uncluttered House, featuring the Schlage Georgian Knob with Camelot trim in Matte Black.

3. Coordinate with the trim

When it comes to painting your home, many homeowners believe the trim is off limits. Why not try something new and coordinate your door with the surrounding trim? We love how the door complements the walls and trim for a look that's anything but bland. You can easily copy this look on plain slab doors with DIY faux panels.

4. Go bold with color

Is your home mostly neutral? Give it an elegant splash of color by painting your interior doors a rich shade. This technique adds something fun without being over the top and it can even make a small space feel larger.

5. Try a DIY herringbone door

Try this DIY herringbone door for a look that’s even more unique. The project is more time intensive than the ideas above, but the result is worth the effort. Check out this great tutorial from Home Stories A to Z.
