Door Alternatives For Interior

Share |

Interior doors are important little gateways that guard privacy and divide areas providing us with multiple space all with their own different purposes. They also keep things hidden from sight. Laundry nooks, pantries, and closets can be open and displayed, of course, but when you want to keep it clean and neat doors are a way to do it.

But sometimes doors are too constricting, especially if the floor plan is unusual or open. The first thing that comes to mind is curtains and while these can be great door alternatives as well as room dividers there are quite a few more options.

A Dutch door, the one that separates in the middle into two sections, is great for a cottage. It’s great for keeping animals in or out when necessary. It looks kinda cool. And in the interior it can be just a fun alternative to the boring pantry or laundry doors. Besides you can open either half of the door when you need something specific on the top or bottom pantry shelves.
