front door color

elitheNovember 21, 2012
I would like to paint my interior double front doors and side panels; they all have half clear beveled glass on top. My walls are dark beige and I have white moldings and shutters. Also, in that room are some black accent pieces, so would black or white be best.

I would paint the interior of your front doors to match your interior trim, which you indicate is white.

I think you can do either black or white. If you're looking to add a little drama, consider black. The great thing about paint is that it's pretty easy and inexpensive to change should you want a different look.

Here are a couple of examples with white trim to consider:

It always sounds like a slam-dunk with regard to best solution. Funny how there are always little surprises discovered in a photo or two. Since you have taken the time to inquire, please send a photo so we can know exactly what that beige is, how those sidelights play out in real time. It does make a difference in opinions on Houzz. :)

Ah, but to support my recommendation of white trim, here's an example.
