Stand Out Paint Colors for Interior Doors

The design industry is seeing a trend as of late that includes showcasing interior doors, and I’m not mad about it. While it’s often common for doors to blend in with the walls and trim, they can also be an amazing way to add depth and dimension throughout a home.

We do it with our walls, so why not include interior doors in the mix?  Here are some options to consider when it’s time to allow your doors to become a standout element.

You’re ready to see beyond the “white” interior door, but still want it to feel soothing and understated.

Add a Calm and Layered effect with these NEUTRAL colors:

Baby Fawn Benjamin Moore OC-15

Baby Fawn Benjamin Moore OC-15

Its lightness coupled with warm undertones, keep it a versatile colour choice throughout the seasons. There’s a softness and tranquility to Baby Fawn that will catch the eye, but subtly blend into the rest of the home.

Boothbay Gray Benjamin Moore HC-165

A soothing gray but can read blue in certain light. When this colour is paired with warm white walls and trim, there is a softening effect. This colour also looks fabulous paired with brass hardware.

Evergreen Fog 9130 by Sherwin Williams

Given its calming hue, you could go with  Evergreen Fog 9130 by Sherwin Williams, which also happens to be their 2022 Colour of the Year. It’s a little more organic in nature, with a mix of green meets gray and a little touch of blue.

Bring a sophisticated and moody vibe to your home with these BOLD colour choices:

Black Beauty Benjamin Moore 2128-10

This black is warm and rich, which serves as a strong pop of contrast throughout the home, but its brown undertones keep it from feeling too dark. Black windows have become a standard selection and including doors in the mix is a great way to compliment the palette within the rest of the home.

Mount Etna Sherwin Williams 7625

With the colour green making a splash in 2022 with Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, Pantone and Valspar, Mount Etna allows you to stay on trend, but add an extra layer of richness.

Hematite by Behr N460-6

I love this colour by Behr.  It’s a charcoal grey that can lean towards green or brown as the light changes. Shown below on kitchen cabinets, you can easily visualize how Hematite would intensify your doors and hallways. Take it up a notch and paint the trim and baseboards as well to help carry the eye up.

BONUS: Add instant curb appeal and make a punchy statement upon entry. Opt to paint your front door one of these nature-inspired colours from Valspar’s picks for 2022.

Delight Moon 3005-6A or Lilac Lane 1002-4B

Whether you choose a soothing neutral, or up your contrast game, highlighting doors with paint will elevate your home instantly.  It’s a fabulous way to expand spaces, compliment other colors, and fill voided areas in the home.

You can start with a small commitment by testing out a color on the entry door to your office or laundry room.  Once you experience the immediate sense of dimension, the rest of your doors will be standing out in no time.
