Undertaking a renovation of any space in your home can leave you feeling stressed and exhausted, and chances are when you’re nearing the end of the project you’re just not feeling it anymore.
Thankfully, putting the final touches on a newly renovated room is as easy as installing some baseboards and adding a few brand-new interior doors to match your style. These two simple things can take a room from being just bare painted drywall to a fully completed room.
It’s true: adding baseboards and interior doors to an otherwise plain room can make it feel finished, like it’s just waiting to be furnished, even if you still have a ways to go with your renovation. Baseboards cover up any unsightly seams between your drywall and your floors, and interior doors add a touch of design and help to close off the space from other areas of your home.
Choosing baseboards for your home is as easy as visiting a home improvement store and picking the style that most appeals to you. However, it’s a good idea for it to be a consistant style throughout your home, or it can end up looking haphazard and busy.
If your style is modern, look for white baseboards with simple, clean lines; if you’re more traditional, find a style that speaks of a time gone by; if you’re style is contemporary or eclectic, feel free to choose colourful baseboards with patterns.
Choosing interior doors for your home takes a bit more consideration than choosing baseboards, simply because there are so many more options.
Wooden interior doors are the most popular option because of their affordability and versatility. These doors come in a variety of colour options, from natural to white to black and every colour in between. They can also be painted to match any room or colour scheme in your home.
Glass doors or ones with glass panels are also another interior door option. These provide less privacy but can do a good job of separating rooms without making the space feel closed off.
If you’re home is tight on space, or if you like the idea of hidden doors, choosing pocket doors can be something to consider. Pocket doors slide into the wall when they’re opened, and can be a great interior door option if a hinged door isn’t ideal.
