This is the doorway that leads from the kitchen to the hallway, and those are the very dated shutter style doors it is currently equipped with. Here is another angle:
It should also be pointed out there is a light switch behind the door on the left. Good planning.
Chrissy and I don't feel a door is really necessary here, especially not these doors, so I removed them.
It now seems a little plain, but I think it's better. I am still trying to decide if I like it.
Any thoughts from the readers on how to handle this doorway?

Damn it. I deleted my comment. Let me repeat: It doesn't look plain it looks minimal, which I consider a good thing. Plus I think the more open, the better as a general rule of thumb. Once you get your pictures hung and your furniture in there it will look very lively and will have a "clean finish" type of feel. Good call on the shutter removal!Delete
Im missing a couple doors in my house too; a kitchen to hallway one as matter of fact. I agree its unnecessary and does look better with out. Shutter-style doors require dusting and I think that kind of dusting (in between slats) is lame. Personally, the only thing I would do to this doorway is replace the light switch cover(s) to plain white so they blend in better with the wall. Even if you are going to repaint with a color (any color), I love white baseboards, crown molding and trim against a color. It makes the color pop and looks very crisp and clean. All in all, I agree with Andrea. When the area/house fills, you'll be glad you are minus some doors :)ReplyDelete
