    • Pocket Doors for Small Spaces

      Pocket doors are the perfect solution for small-space rooms. Since they don't open into any room, they don't need any clearance to open and close. A single pocket door with glass panels allows a laundry room and kitchen to share light while creating separation to preserve cleanliness and organization.

    • Glass French Door

      Like windows, doors are a key part of any wall's composition. Here, a beautiful French door separates the nursery from the hallway, while still letting light flow freely between rooms. Incorporating a French door into a living space allows you to add a little old-fashioned charm.

    • Sliding Barn Door

      This door pulls double duty as a wall. A white sliding barn door functions perfectly in this small space, separating the bedroom from the living room. The white door is hung on barn-door rollers, making it easy to slide open and closed.

    • How to Paint a Room

      Make interior doors stand out with a colorful backdrop. Learn how to paint a room like a pro with these tips.

    • Bifold Dining Room Doors

      White bifold doors, once leading to an enclosed porch, now create a welcoming entrance into a traditional-meets-modern dining room. The doors help retain the Cape-cod influenced home's original charm.

    • Arch-Top Interior Doors

      Arch-top French doors offer an elegant introduction into any room of the house. Simple trim and graceful curves signal a flair for vintage character.

    • Asian-Inspired Sliding Doors

      French doors aren't the only light-sharing solution for interior spaces. Reminiscent of shoji screens, these sliding doors with wooden windowlike panes blend perfectly with the modern cabinetry in this kitchen.

    • Paned-Glass Pocket Doors

      Pocket doors also conveniently disappear when you don't need them. This paned-glass interior door mimics the home's exterior windows. Leading from the living room, the pocket doors open on to an airy sunroom with casual dining and sitting space.

    • Wooden Door with Metal Detail

      A sturdy wooden interior door features an elaborate metal grill insert that allows light to stream from room to room. Here, metal inserts transmit light, and add a decorative touch, without sacrificing privacy between the bathroom and bedroom in this master suite.

      Frosted-glass Pantry Doors

      The see-through quality of frosted glass adds dimension to this sliding pantry door. But the frosted glass also obscures pantry contents, so the pantry doesn't have to be kept too tidy. Sleek, sliding doors create a sense of drama in a room and also serve a practical function: when one is opened, it doesn't interrupt traffic flow.

      Hidden Pantry Doors

      These dining room doors open up to a butler's pantry. But when they're closed, the tall double doors blend right in with the walls of the dining room. This visual trick essentially hides the doors, allowing them to integrate into the surroundings.

      Industrial-Inspired Sliding Door

      A custom-made glass-and-steel door is the perfect portal for this contemporary home. Hung on barn tracking, the sliding-glass door becomes a decorative element on the wall when open. When closed, it offers privacy from the adjoining room while still allowing light to stream in. And because barn-track doors don't swing open like a regular door, they're great space savers.

      Slide-Open Convenience

      This wooden door, suspended from a barn-style track, creates a sliding entryway between the formal dining room and kitchen. The door is inset with beaded board, which suits the flavor of the entire house. Black hardware and hinges add visual interest.

      Ribbed-Glass Door

      A ribbed-glass pane adds texture to a wooden pocket door frame. The horizontal pattern in the glass allows light to pass, while the view from both sides is distorted. Although this interior door leads to a pantry, the door gives the illusion of a bigger space beyond.

      Pivoting Glass Door

      This modern door seems to almost float in place. The pivoting door is made of sandblasted glass and is designed to shut flush to the wall, without a jamb, framing, or molding. Sleek, efficient and modern, a jambless interior door adds to the uninterrupted flow in this contemporary home.
