Closet doors are an integral part of every bedroom, but they also take up a lot of space. If these imposing and boring doors are ruining the overall appeal of your bedroom, why not spruce them up with these inexpensive and simple ways to decorate your closet door? You can completely reinvigorate your space by transforming your closet doors from an eyesore to a focal point.
A New Casing
A brand-new casing, or trim, can breathe new life into your closet doors. You can get casings in a wide variety of styles, from farmhouse to minimalistic. To sweeten the deal, door casing is inexpensive (under $100 in most cases) and easy to install.
If you really want to beautify your closet doors, you can also place corner (casing) blocks in the corners of the casework. These blocks replace the miters, the joints that connect two pieces of wood together, with something more intricate and less jarring.
A Fresh Coat of Paint
The easiest way to decorate your closet doors is to paint them. You can get paint, paintbrushes, and painter’s tape at your local hardware store. Painting closet doors is infinitely easier and faster than painting an entire room, so even first-time DIY painters shouldn’t have much trouble with this project.
When it comes to choosing a color for your closet doors, look around at the rest of your room for inspiration. Is most of your other stuff blue? Paint your doors complementary colors such as purple or green or a contrasting color such as orange.
Add a Medallion
Medallions are a versatile piece of architectural décor that you can use in a wide variety of projects. Just like paint, you can find medallions at most hardware or home improvement stores. Make sure to buy ones with holes in the center large enough to accommodate the knobs. Place the medallion over the doorknobs, but paint them beforehand if you want them to match the existing color of your doors.
You may also want to consider choosing new doorknobs to complement the medallions. Doorknobs made from stylish materials such as crystal and metal offer a nice contrast to the antique feel of medallions.
