We all love a solid wood door.
I’m talking either in its natural finish or stained.
The weight, the solidity, the quality, the warmth a wood door can impart adds an incredible richness to an interior.
And all that goodness is just right there at your fingertips. You’re touching it every day. And you can feel the quality, the wood, the material.
Oftentimes, people think: When you have wood doors, you need matching wood frames and mouldings.
...But that’s not so.
Just like a black painted door with light colored mouldings sets off a door and accents it, a wood door with painted mouldings is also accented and featured.
So, the best way to show off a solid wood door in a space, so that it has a special prominence and is given the attention it deserves, is to surround it with a painted wood frame and painted mouldings.
The resulting contrast will make the beautiful wood door the room's focus. It makes it even more special.
With the painted moldings, it gives the space a lightness, while still introducing a heavy, rich material.
So feature your wood doors! Make them feel special! Make them stand out!
Give them the stage :-)
