Decorate a Room by Painting Your Doors

Imagine your plain, white boring doors taking on a personality that changes your room completely.

When you think of decorating a room, you probably plan to paint the walls. After all, color can change the way a room feels. But most of us don't think of painting our doors.

So I was wondering what my room would look like if I painted my closet and entry doors. Using a computer program, I generated different colors on my door.

If you decide to decorate your room by painting your doors, remember that you'll be using egg shell finish, which is slightly glossy. The painted doors in this article were computer generated and, therefore, lack that sheen which you see in the white doors.

I especially like the idea of painting the doors in black, which is a dramatic color that goes well with modern decor. Natural or wood colors will suit a traditional, mahogany furnished room.
