door - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The door was the grey of unburnished silver, dull and spotted with years of water damage. Where there should have been some fancy matching handle was only a square shaft of dark cold metal. Mac closed his fingers around it to twist but they simply slipped over the coarse edges and came away blackened...
Soon enough Ray heard a door open and shut, its creaking noise bringing a chill to his spine. It sounded like some dying animal, crying out its pain and sorrow with its last breath.
The door was solid metal. Nothing was going to budge it. The surface was flat and shiny like the outside of a stainless steel refrigerator. There was no handle, no lock, no hinges, nothing to get a grip on. The top and bottom, even the sides, lay so utterly flush with the frame that there was no hope of jemmying it open even if they had had a crowbar, but they had nothing of the sort. All they had was the Swiss army knife he always carried and a packet of chewing gum.
...small shuttered door.
It was a door to keep out the worst of the weather rather than intruders. Grandpa must live in a safe neighborhood she thought, she couldn't imagine anyone having a door like that in New York. The door was framed with what looked like a plank of wood around the outside edges and one across the middle for strength, it had the clawed, slightly bubbly look of wood that's starting to rot at the joints. The bottom half looked like a flimsy piece of plywood had been nailed in place and painted, the top half was a single pane of frosted glass covered in condensation.
The door was scratched and dented with chipped brown varnish, it had a brass colored lock and door knob dulled with age and greasy fingermarks. A brass safety chain dangled at the side of the door, a pointless gesture in a neighborhood like this. He crouched in the darkened bed-sit watching a small diffuse ray of hallway light shine through a solitary stray bullet hole in the door.
A plain white Door leads to the baby's bedroom. Its four carved panels give the Door depth and texture.

The darkened door swells and groans as the toxic smoke enters the room from the doors skirts.

...she tried the door knob and the heavy iron-bound door swung open.
