30 Unusual Doors & Dramatic Door Decor

— April 9, 2009 — Art & Design
You probably don't give too much thought to your front door--or any of the other doors in your home, for that matter--but these essential barriers provide excellent opportunities in the design department.

LED glass doors, kinetic energy-generating revolving doors and luxurious interactive doors are excellent for homeowners with a passion for technology. Quirky doorknobs in the form of light bulbs or outstretched hands are perfect for those with a lighthearted personality. And a high-security front door or clandestine hidden door are perfect for VIPs.
