Closet doors are like ceilings — you don’t notice them unless they’re bad, and then it’s all you can see. But what if you looked at your doors as a way to enhance your design? It’s totally possible. These 12 DIY transformations are completely approachable, and most are renter-friendly too. So what are you waiting for? Start scrolling!
1. Polka Dot Door: It doesn’t get much easier than this. This playful pattern will work with almost any style, and it can easily be covered up or changed at a later point. (via Sarah Hearts)
2. Medallion Upgrade: Get yourself to a hardware store STAT! Who knew ceiling medallions and a little effort could create a showstopping upgrade to plain closet doors? (via One Kings Lane)
3. Mid-Century Vibes: You don’t need to paint to get a bold look. By using tape and door plates, you can recreate the look and feel of a glam retro space for a fraction of the cost of original hardware. (via Melodrama)
4. Pretty in Pink: Those heinous bi-fold doors don’t need to be a part of your life. With a little bit of wood framing and some fresh handles (and of course paint), you can get a custom look on a budget. (via Monica Wants It)
6. Geometric Tape: No paint? No problem. Grab some black masking tape and create a symmetrical pattern on your door. (via Likainen Parketti)
8. Mirrored Details: Stuck with the giant mirrored sliders that were standard builder’s grade back in the day? Replacing them entirely can be costly, but applying custom overlays instantly adds a touch of glam. (via The Honeycomb Home)
9. Shaker-Style Upgrades: Standard lumber is all it takes to recreate Shaker style. (via Room for Tuesday)
10. Paint Job: Did you know that you can create patterns and designs with painters tape, paint over them, and peel back the tape for a design that looks like it was done with expensive trim? Now you do! (via Rain on a Tin Roof)
11. Trim & Proper: The fancy trims you see in the millwork aisle at the hardware store aren’t just for chair rails. Some of the more delicate pieces are easy to cut and apply. (via A Beautiful Mess)
12. Washi Tape Trim: For the ultimate renter hack, use washi tapes to create the illusion of paneling. The design doesn’t have to be too complex to make it interesting and unique. (via Almost Makes Perfect)
