Ask Christine – paint it black?
There is a lot of chat lately about interior doors being painted black. What are your thoughts?

For living or selling? For living – I love it! People freak out, thinking it will be too dark, but with white trim, the contrast is striking. It is timelessly elegant, classic, and sophisticated. Black interior doors can actually help balance decor if you have other black accents around the room. They can hide imperfections and don’t show dirt as much as other colors. If you have a room with noticeable design voids, a black door will mitigate the impact of those voids, so they don’t look so noticeable.
