Top 10 Strange and Unusual Doors

After looking around the house thinking about doing some decorating, I came to a sharp conclusion…Doors are boring! They might well be all different colours, but really there are only a few basic designs and layouts. But it seems people are trying to change things because what I have found is some of the most amazing, creative and innovated doors you will ever see, think this is going to be boring? Time to think again…

10 – Bat it back

Those of us with a good memory (not myself) will remember this one from my post “Top 10 Most Amazing Table Tennis Tables” and while it is a great idea to turn a door into a table tennis table it means while people are playing it you can’t use it as a door!

9 – Use the key Clara!

Ever wanted to walk into the TARDIS? Well, you can’t because it is not real, but you could well pretend with the rather amazing TARDIS door poster! All you have to do is attach the poster to the door and let your imagination run wild.

This amazing door made by Leandro Erlich is in fact… 2D! What you are looking at is just a 3D painted image making it one of the most amazing illusions you will ever see. I think I would love this in my house just to make an otherwise boring door the main talking point!

7 –The Space Saver

Made by designer Wessels Moer Barjet This door of draws might look normal while closed but once it is opened it reveals 20 drawers that are perfect for little storage of loose bit and pieces that you might never use or maybe as a hiding space  for more valuable items.

6 – When art knocks at the door, things change!

These amazing artwork doors by “Lance Jordan Creations” are nothing short of beautiful. To be able to come up with something this amazing from a plain old front door requires a sort of spark, a skill that can never be learnt, only born with.

5 – Soft Wood

This amazing curtain effect door is simply beautiful, designed by artist Matharoo Associates it is located a diamond merchant’s house in Surat, India. It is kind of weird but also rather amazing and I am sure it would make more sense in real life than in images.

4 – 151 Rue de Grenelle

While there are many amazing works of art to see in Paris this one will be overlooked by most.  But people shouldn’t because this door was made by the famous architect Jules Lavirotte and is nothing short of incredible. Seems doors have been works of art for ages!

Family inspired door

3 – 3 for all!

It is by weird coincidence that number 3 is a door that offers 3 doors in one, being one each for the whole family! Made by a company called SlamDoors Ltd they are perfect even for the little ones that don’t have the strength to open up the big boys door.

2 – TROMPE-L’OEIL: deceive the eye

While these amazing door stickers a little expensive they would make any door look amazing rather than plain like most of them are, so why not splash out a bit and make a plain door a doorway to creativity.

Pantone swatches Inspired Door

1 –  Door To The Rainbow

Made from the amazing amount of 585 framed slides of Pantone swatches and then placed in a laminated glass and surrounded by a wood frame this door is pure art. Sadly this is just a one-off, but maybe someone will one day make them for us home DIY people.
