Another way to enhance the function of the doors in your bedroom is to replace them with light-filtering or reflective materials. A frosted glass pocket door can make a small room feel less closed in. Similarly, a mirrored closet door could make the room feel larger.
Unless you’re going for an ultra minimalist look, bare white walls in a bedroom can feel more stark than luxurious. Embrace a little paint or wallpaper to give your bedroom a warmer, more designed look.
Consider replacing ordinary door hardware with more stylish options. Handles and knobs in Lucite, modern brushed brass or polished chrome could give the room an updated feel. For a more cohesive, intentional look, coordinate your door hardware with your drawer pulls.
Design tip: Try adding a decorative component to the exterior surface of the foldout piece. A painted pattern on the back of a closed table or desk would add a visually interesting element to the room.
