Another day, another serious world problem to solve. Today’s issue – interior door color.
After looking at every style door, we finally agreed to go with a three-panel Shaker style door. (Fun side note: This was actually Ryan’s first choice and my second choice, so no one can EVER say I never compromise.)
But now, I’m waffling on colors – should we go black or white?
I think either color would work fine, but I really don’t want to repaint them so I’m trying to feel confident in our choice.
I originally planned on white. But I think they blend in a little too much with all the white trim work. There aren’t a LOT of doors, so it would be nice if they stood out a bit. Plus, we have had white doors and they do get pretty banged up. On the plus side, I think the matte black hardware would look amazing.
And then there’s the black door. I love the contrast against the white trim and think it provide a nice statement. And I’m pretty sure I’d pay to have them factory painted, which means I don’t have to paint all the doors. (WIN!) The white color would be custom to match the windows, so I will have to paint them myself. But I’m concerned about whether they will feel dated over time.
What would you choose?
If you tell me, there’s a fifty percent chance I’ll listen.
