Stained Solid Wood Doors
July 23, 2007 § 2 Comments
Many of you, after reading about how garage doors are painted the house color and how front doors should be a stand-out color, have written in about using stained solid wood doors. My comment to that is, whenever your budget allows for solid wood doors, go for it. There’s nothing like the richness of wood, whether it’s a mahogany stained front door or garage doors, to dress up your home.
What color stain should one use on a wood door that is on a red brick house with reddish pink mortar and flagstone around the front picture window by the front door? Currently the door is stained an orangy tone on birch.
I’ve consider just painting it black as the bricks are one color and the stones are a totally different range of salmon red to yellow and cream.
A dark mahogany brown would look very rich and would act as a neutral against all those other brick and stone colors. Black will always work but check out the dark wood look first. It just looks better to have a real wood door.
