Alder interior doors?

jj101October 10, 2012

I will have a painted trim in my home and am trying to decide on interior doors. I am debating Alder doors. Does anyone have them? I know alder is one of the softer hardwoods. If you have alder interior doors, I would love to see photos and know how they hold up. (And wood jams or painted jambs??? Ugh...too many decisions!! :)

Here are some pictures of knotty alder doors with white enamel trim from my builder's model homes:

You are welcome! I personally prefer doors that are the same color as trim (whether you do all white or all wood) but obviously white trim with wood doors works and appeals to a lot of people (otherwise I don't think my builder would do so many of its models this way!)
