While stainless steel and nickel are the most popular choices for interior door hardware, dark bronze is just as readily available and it's more unique. Here, dark black-brown bronze knobs are added to coordinate with the nail-head trim on the laundry room's fabric-covered bifold doors.
Rustic accents are often used to add winter warmth to interiors, but rustic doesn't just mean stone fireplaces, thick wooden beams or aged pine. Here, an old, country-style cabinet door is repurposed into a serving tray with basic door pulls as handles.
Black patio doors pull the eye toward the brighter green bench, plants and pillows. The architecture of the door almost fades away, drawing attention to the outdoors. Black stripes from the rug and artwork and the simple metal light fixture add to the effect.
Whimsical, unexpected style can also be sophisticated. When replacing the door pulls of a bathroom vanity, consider door knockers rather than pulls or handles. The key to using door knockers effectively is choosing those with the proper scale and proportion for a vanity's door fronts.
Dark sliding doors pull back to reveal this practical yet attractive bedroom. A blue throw pillow adds a pop of color to the neutral bedding. A retro bedside table, classic table lamp and thick striped rug complete the space.
Dated, contractor-grade vanities can instantly take new shape with the addition of glossy white paint and classic drawer pulls. In its original state, this tiny boy's bathroom featured a low-end cherry vanity as well as drawers and door fronts void of any hardware at all. After one coat of primer and two coats of ultra-white latex paint in a semigloss finish, the old vanity instantly appears new.
This kitchen features plenty of stunning design details throughout, like the unique herringbone wooden pantry door with brass pull handle. The space combines a classic gray and white color palette with modern patterns as seen on the hardwood floor.
In the laundry room, what was once a utility closet is now a useful pantry. Pull-out drawers and wire baskets add to the pantry's functionality. The original swinging door was replaced with a barn-style sliding one, which takes up less room in the smaller space.
Mirrored doors pull back to reveal this sweepingly grand living room featuring a double-height ceiling and crystal chandelier. Curtains cover the entire window facade when needed drawing the eye upward.
