Door Color When Mixing Woodwork
We have a way too small and seriously out-dated lake property that we are planning to have removed and a new home put in it's place. Intially we had hoped to just do a remodel but with everything that needed to be done, and the waterfront restrictions to deal with, rebuilding was really the only way to go.
I love white woodwork but my sentimental family members are used to always seeing stained woodwork on the old cottage for all these years. They feel it has more of the "homey lake feel". I somewhat feel the same for the main downstairs area. There will be an open kitchen, dining room, living area. I wouldn't mind doing the stained wood there.
I would like to use white woodwork upstairs. There is a door leading to the upper level so it would be naturally seperated anyway.
There is one bedroom downstairs, which would be off the open area. If I wanted to do white woodwork in there as well how do most people handle the door and frame color? Would it be brown on the outside to match the woodwork in that area and then white on the inside to match the bedroom? There is also a laundry off the kitchen that I would rather have white woodwork in. Same thing for that? I'm hoping that there is a way to make it all blend together and keep everyone happy.
