Bold Black Doors

July 10th, 2013

I am obsessed with black doors right now. All white interiors with black doors. I firmly believe in the design concept of contrast. Contrast makes rooms look bigger, and defines spaces. Contrast gives your eyes a place to land and gives your brain a que to pay attention. Here is some great inspiration that I’ve collected – so you can visualize the idea:

I have 3 sets of “mini” french doors (like the ones below) slated for the house – One from master into master bedroom. One from kitchen into pantry, and one from the hall into the reading nook. I’m pretty sure all of these are going to be black. Though I might consider painting a brighter “fun” color for the pantry doors. Like a turquoise.
I also have 2 sets of black french doors planned for the family room (going out to the back deck). In essence something like this:

    We did black doors in our downstairs. With all the white trim in the rest of the house they look amazing!

    I LOVE black doors and was surprised at what a difference it makes. I painted 1 door in my home and loved it. We are now building a new home and, like you, plan to paint all of our glass french doors black. Thanks for the visual reminder of how awesome they will be!
