Stain color for Interior doors vs flooring color

charudeshpandeOctober 10, 2012
Hi All,

I have a design dilemma that I would love input on. We are building a modern new home with beautiful stainable/paintable 1 3/4 inch FIR interior doors. We have chosen an awesome steel grey bamboo flooring but now are trying to figure out what color to stain the interior doors. We have tried a few stains but they were too red or didn't seem to relate. Our preference is stain over paint of course.

Details that may help:
1. Main floor is open floor plan
2. Paint color on main floor to be White
3. Doors on main floor that can be seen in the same plane
(a) Front door- Fir door with 3 glass panels
(b) Vestibule Door- Fir door with glass panel glass
(c) Bathroom door- 1 panel wood door
(d) 2 Nana walls perpendicular to each other
4. The exterior stain color is call jacobean

ANY suggestions would greatly be appreciated!

See floor color sample here:
