Freshen Up The Room By Repainting Doorways

If you want to bring some life back to your living room, but you don’t want to get in over your head with DIY, we have a project that may be perfect for you. Doorways are an often-neglected part of living rooms, only really seeing attention when repainting the whole room or replacing a door. This means that doorways can often look dull and tired, which can make the rest of your living room look dull and tired also.

So, you can bring your doorways back to life, with minimal DIY knowledge, by repainting your door frames in a bold colour to add depth and vibrance back into your living room. Ideally, you should pick a colour that contrasts with the rest of your living room’s décor, to make the doorways pop and give you the feeling of walking into a new, fresh space.
