Take a leafThe most obvious – and common – use of above-door space is for books. This home just has a single bookshelf running along the top of the wall, which is very simple look to achieve.

Look behind the doorSmall walls behind doors are generally ignored, with perhaps a piece of furniture popped in place. Try fitting slim shelves – paperback width rather than wider – and even if the door opens inwards, it shouldn’t be obstructed. Go floor to ceiling and you’ll get a huge amount of storage that otherwise would have been wasted.

Build it into the structureIf antiques or industrial features aren’t your thing, you can still add interest with an old door. Here, the earthy texture gives a rustic feel to this clean, white interior.

Denny found this blanket in a National Trust shop. ‘You get magpie-like when you see something lovely,’ she says. ‘My rule is that nothing must match, but everything must go together.’ The door is original. ‘It’s nice to see something that’s not perfect – it’s scratched to pieces and is a little bit of real.’Radiator, B&Q.
