If you watch Fixer Upper on TV with Chip and Joanna Gaines, then you know that two of Joanna’s loves (besides Chip), are shiplap and French doors. She includes both elements in almost every home makeover. I recently posted inspiring examples of shiplap, and today I’m featuring beautiful French doors in a variety of applications.
I’m totally smitten with this Old World bathroom. The claw foot tub is a stunning feature all on its own, but it looks even more spectacular against the backdrop of black-painted French doors. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to bathe surrounded in bubbles with the doors open?
A clever tactic to bring more light into a hallway is to incorporate French doors at the end of the hall. It makes the home feel more spacious and avoids a claustrophobic tunnel effect.
Glass doors are often found leading out to a patio or deck.
Painted French doors lead to a rustic farmhouse bathroom loaded with old-fashioned charm.
Of course, the most wonderful of doors are those with a spectacular view. Not only is the cozy dining space inviting and appealing, but the view of the beach lures you outside.
A Mediterranean archway frames multi-paned doors leading to a side yard. You might find your home has a few blank walls that could be replaced with a set of French doors.
Pink painted doors lead to a farmhouse sleeping porch with a green-painted floor.
Three sets of French doors define one wall of this neutral living room.
Architectural details like arched doors always make a memorable impression in any home. Do you enjoy French doors in your home? If not, do you have a space where you think you could include them?
