Painted Interior Doors

Happy Monday everyone hope you had a good weekend! I’ve been pondering painted interior doors for quite some time now, so I’m finally coming to you all to help me make a decision. I’m going to do this, and wanted to do it yesternow, but I just couldn’t decide. I love it when I see other people paint their interior doors black and think it looks so sharp. Why haven’t I jumped on the bandwagon yet?! I think I’m going to start by painting our pantry door in the white kitchen, so keep that in mind. If all goes well, then I’ll do the rest. :)

With a little help from Google, I found these beautiful grey and black interior doors.

I love this light grey interior door from Real Simple.

And that hallway isn’t too shabby either wouldn’t you say?

And here’s A Well Dressed Home’s black doors. Love them with the brass hardware.

And while I love the black and grey interior doors, I also love colors too…

So fun right? I’m torn on what to do. Play it safe with a dark charcoal color or go with whimsy? I shouldn’t agonize over this decision because after all, it’s just paint. If I don’t like it I just paint back over it. No big deal. But since I’m the agonizing queen, agonize is what I’ll do.

While I love the look of the pretty colored doors that really brighten up the space, I’m a little hesitant that I’ll tire of them quicker vs. if I played it safer with a neutral. But again, I could always paint over when I’m tired of it.

What would you do? Do you have your interior doors painted?

xxoo,

Decorchick!

  1. All of my doors are original wood from 1926, so no painting doors and woodwork for me, but I do love some of those. If I had newer/builder’s grade doors I think I would have fun with it. Like you said, it’s easy to paint over it if you aren’t happy with it.

  2. My doors are also stained and my hubby would die if I painted them. However, I recently painted our front door a bright blue and I believe I will paint the inside of that front door the same color which right now is boring white.

  3. I recently blogged about doing the same thing. I went with black and I love it. I’d be hesitant with using a fun color, only because it will be somewhat limiting. Good luck!

  4. I looked at all the options you were looking and and they chose to pull in colors that match their kitchen. You could easily go with the black or a slate grey since you have stainless/black appliances but I’m noticing a lot of salmon, pink and orange colors present in your pictures. You could easily go with that salmon/orange color from your kiss the cook jars, then it would be a stand out piece, not too girly, and not too bright. If you’re not feeling that daring you could go with a slate or sky blue. Enjoy!

    • Mandy stated my thoughts exactly. I think with a white kitchen you can have a little fun and as you said, it is only paint.

    • I think that sounds perfect!

    • Thanks for the suggestions Mandy love them! I do love me some coral. :)

    • I’m with Mandy…coral would be so fun, I also love the yellow door with the curtains and accessories across the room, so have fun! I just bought the wildest cat clock…I don’t know anyone who would really applaud me on getting it and putting it up, it is wild, but so cute and so fun. I don’t care! It’s my house and I can always take it down when I am tired of it, but for now, have fun kiddo! I am! ♥

  5. Love all of these! My favorite is the black I think it’s so striking and classic looking. One of my sisters has black doors in her vacation house it looks beautiful! I would tire of the other colors too quickly and then feel like they were hard to incorporate decorating for the different seasons. You could always make it easier on yourself and use photoshop or paintshop pro and change the door color on a photo to see if that’s what you really want (I rarely make a change in my house w/out doing this).

  6. Love them all but my favorite is Black.

  7. Kathy Sigmon says:

    Our kitchen cabinets are red with a black glaze. So we painted the interior doors that are visible from the kitchen the same red. We love it!

  8. My main floor doors were painted black a few months ago and I LOVE it! With 4 kids you can imagine how dirty the white doors were getting but now, they look fabulous all the time. :) I consider black so classic and I hate painting doors so I figured it was a win win.

  9. I die a little when I see the light gray walls, white trim, and dark gray doors and realize they are not in my house.

  10. I did the same thing…pondered painting our interior doors. I wanted to paint them black but I was scared, even though it’s just paint! Then with my husbands encouragement I went for it. We both love our black doors…gorgeous!

    P.S. I will be making the cake this weekend for Jen’s b-day and if all goes well I will take a picture and send it to you :-)

  11. My contractor grade stained doors are flat with no character, and painting won’t change that and make them lovely. I suppose I will leave them as is, but really wish I could have some options for flat hollow doors :(

    I like the black best, though

  13. I have stained wood doors now in new home, however in my older home, I had a black painted door and loved it. However I do have a turquoise front door on my new home and love it too!

  14. All our interior trim and doors are white, but we have a gorgeous ornate front door that’s original to our 113-year-old house, so I’m in the process of stripping and staining it (both sides)… I think the dark glossy wood grain is going to look awesome against the white trim. AND I love to be unique. I can’t wait till it’s done!

  15. Love these doors — but I don’t think my husband would be happy with anything but white doors!

  16. I’m totally crushing on the first door with the matching trim and baseboards! I’ve always loved black interior doors but now that picture has me thinking a lighter color could look even better!

  17. What if you did them charcoal black or black and then did your pantry door a fun color! Loved the black door with brass hardware!

  18. This is really stunning. All these options are gorgeous. But I love the look of black door and also prefer it because it helps to hide finger prints or dirtiness. Its dramatic look inspires me.

  19. All my doors are white inside with white trim. I think the idea is great though. I am leaving mine white though it’s the walls I do the color on. But have fun with it why not?

  20. yes I love the painted door! I would love to paint mine too but like you, what happens you I get tired of it!.

  21. Funny I just found this post today. I was actually talking to my husband last night about wanting to paint the doors in our new home either black or a deep mocha. I too love painted doors. Here is what I think for what it is worth. Dark neutral colors are classy and classic whereas pastels or vibrant colors are fun. So which image do you want to project? For me, I think I’m going to go neutral on one and maybe find that special door or two to have a little fun with.

  22. I am planning to paint a few interior doors and maybe the front door. I liked the examples!

    Going to the garage, I was thinking a chalkboard paint would be handy for the ‘don’t forget’ things. But, I am afraid after a while, it will just be decor and will not be read.

    Not sure on pantry door. Chalk board or the same accent color the bar and columns are painted. Hmmm. What do you think?

  23. I do love black interior doors—I think they grab attention, but not in a shocking way.

    I want to paint my back door a fun color to coordinate with my kitchen, which will be mostly white and aqua, but accessorized with bright accessories like lime green, purple, and orange. So, the back door will either be lime green or orange. The front door will be a little more conservative, but still fun—maybe a more muted teal? We’ll see!
