White doors with stained trim in the entryway.

angeezApril 4, 2013

We live in a split foyer and our entryway is probably 9 x 6 ft. We have a front door, a door to the garage and a 6 ft set of bifold doors in that entryway that are all stained fairly dark and make the area seem too dark. Our front door has an extra stationary party to it that makes it look larger and both have stained glass in them. The 2 doors are steel I believe and the previous owners stained them a terrible brown. We are redoing the woodwork in our home and it is all stained. I would like to get new doors but that's not in the budget right now. Would it look bad to paint the doors and bifolds white? I plan to leave the stained trim since it is new. Thanks for any help!!!

my front door and side casings are white - but my trim is medium oak stain and I like the difference between the two of them together.
