We spotted a few great ideas in the Houzz home tour of Brian Gibb and photographer Misty Keasler, a creative Texas couple who have figured out how to have little ones and show off their love of quirky art. The one we loved the most is putting a screen door on a kid’s room. As anyone who has ever tried to get a little one to sleep knows, sometimes the lights go off, sometimes they stay on. Sometimes the door is closed, sometimes it stays open a crack. In our house, this latter option never works, because our puppy Cupcake takes that as invitation to enter, and he doesn’t go to sleep quite as early as our girl. Solution? Interior screen door. Pretty wooden ones like the one in the photo above are available at Home Depot. They’re affordable, lightweight, and paintable. What’s best is that they allow you to keep the room contained — no unwelcome pets or siblings wondering in — while allowing light and air to circulate. Genius!
What do you think: Would you install an interior screen door anywhere in your house? Kid’s room? A home office?
