One of the most common questions I get asked is “what is your door color”? Today I am here to answer that question and share why you should paint your doors dark too!
Black doors (or dark doors) are classy! White walls, white trim, and white doors come across standard or maybe even cottage, but add a pop of ebony in the mix and the high contrast just screams sophistication! Even a laundry room appears more refined with a dark dramatic entrance.
Dark doors frame a great view! It could be a view to a study or a master bedroom retreat, or the gorgeous outdoors. Either way a dark frame just enhances the scenery within…kinda like framed art!
Black doors play off other black accents in a space. Take my entry foyer for example, the dark doors marry the dark stair balusters and the dark carpet all together, creating one beautiful design triangle.
Builder grade doors transform into a custom look with black paint! Classy doesn’t have to equal a million dollars.
Black doors will enhance your hardware or make it blend in. In my house, both is true. I have a black steel front door with flat black hardware. The custom door is the design focal point while the hardware is merely there for function. On my interior doors, the opposite is true. I have a simple modern 2 panel door. Paint them dark and add some decorative door knobs and you have yourself a piece of art! My door color is Cheating Heart by Benjamin Moore. This rich dark color with blue undertones is enhanced with these Emtek brass and crystal door knobs throughout. To mimic this look, order the rectangular rosette in the French Antique finish. Customize with the Provence crystal knob. Emtek offers so many great options, the combinations are endless! Click here to customize your look.
