Black Interior Doors

Posted by lesliep (My Page) on

I am considering replacing the interior doors in our home with black doors. I have looked at many pictures and have noticed there is always white trim surrounding the black doors. I have medium dark wood trim around the doors and wonder if leaving the trim as it is now would look okay. I could not find a single picture where white wasn't used, so now I'm wondering why.

I think people just like the pop of black against white. here are some with stained trim

RE: Black Interior Doors

Thank you for the pictures. I am one of those people who has to see it, have trouble picturing things. The wood trim I have is in excellent shape and I like it, so painting it is not something I want to do!

RE: Black Interior Doors

I love black doors, I think they look crisp and dressed up. However, I'll throw my opinion out, I prefer them with the lighter, painted trim. The beauty is in the contrast. Are your current doors of the same wood as your trim? If so, I think it would look best as is.

RE: Black Interior Doors

Yes, they are the same, and now as I look at the trim, it is really pretty dark. I think I would like the black door against the trim as it is now. Not too big on contrast. The trim is very nice, but the doors (1952) are cheap and not one closes properly, and the hardware is awful. This is number one on my list of projects.
