What color to stain doors?
Our front hall runs north-south about 9', then turns and runs about 30'. It's 6' wide throughout. The condo is an "industrial loft" meaning it has concrete columns, ceilings and some walls, some exposed conduit/outlets and some finished with sheetrock. The sheetrocked walls in the hall, and so far in the great room (that might change - I'd like to inject some color in the great room, and there are only two painted walls, the rest is concrete and huge windows, and the kitchen) are Benjamin Moore China White and Berkshire Beige.
The front door is very tall and wide, and is birch wood and stained a kind of greige with a blue undertone.
In the hall, there are 5 doors -- 2 for the coat closet, one for the bathroom, 1 laundry room (slatted) and 1 pantry. There's also a similar door off the great room, so 6 doors total in addition to the front door.
The question is -- my DH likes the doors unstained, but I think they look, well, unfinished. Would you suggest painting them white, staining them a natural color, or staining them to match the front door?
(I'll have the same question with respect to 4 doors in the master bedroom, but the color situation is different, so I'll do a different thread for that one).
I'll try to post pictures later, but getting the front door color to show correctly will be tough!
Thanks for your help.
