9 cool Instagram accounts that spotlight architectural details

Floors, ceilings, and everything in between

There seems to be an Instagram account for everything these days, from travel photography to historic homes to the beauty of minimalism. So it should not come as a surprise that the visually-driven network also includes pages that’ll satisfy our most niche architectural fascinations. The commonplace subject of doors, for example, has taken on a life of its own on Instagram through "doortraits" from around the world, a phenomenon recently detailed in a New York Times’ Style section feature.

But doors aren’t the only seemingly mundane design detail elevated to swoon-worthy new heights on Instagram. Below, we’ve rounded up nine accounts that have a singular focus on our built environment. Go ahead, find your obsession.
