My Style Monday {Black Doors}

Hello Homelovers!

Happy Monday evening to you! Hope you’ve had a great day so far!

Today on My Style Monday I’m talking about black doors…one of the most delicious design elements ever. Black doors aren’t a new concept but it’s something that has caught my eye in the last few years. One of the first project I did when I moved into my new home was painted my front door BLACK inside and out! I think when you pair it with white or any other neutrals, the combination is stunning. It instantly gives off a classy, high style feel to any room!

Here is my black front door…..

Check out some of these stunning images via Pinterest!

The thing I love about black doors is that it hides finger smudges and boot rubs pretty well. BUT dry dirt seems to be seen pretty easily! By using a semi gloss or glossy paint your will be able to wipe it down without a problem.



I love how these black doors add to the symmetry of this room.

This one has to be my favorite though. A beautiful black DUTCH door coupled with brick floors really gives this room some rustic charm!


Looking for a good black paint to get started? I just finished painting my laundry room door black using a semi gloss latex paint from ACE applied using a 39 cent sponge brush:0) I LOVE those things!  If your looking to achieve a high gloss sheen make sure you use oil base paint! Or you can even try a lacquer finish for a show stopping door!

So how do you guys feel about black doors? Do you have any in your home? What about your front door? Is that painted black?

  1. Love your blog, I just discovered it a couple of weeks ago. My front door is black inside and out too – best thing I ever did – LOVE it!

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog!!!!

    My front door is painted black! I would love to paint all the doors in my home black, but because of the layout I am afraid if I painted them all black it would make my house look too dark. I have a lot of dark wood and I am afraid it would just make it look too heavy. =(

  3. I love black doors. So dramatic and classy. I’d consider it if my front door wasn’t new and mahogony. Eek. Maybe one day… love your door.

  4. I was thinking about painting my front door black and the shutters black, but I haven’t got the energy up to do it yet. So many projects!

    Love your blog.

  5. I love your front door! I’ve been dying to paint mine black for awhile. I keep going back and forth. We’re getting ready to repaint most of our house, so maybe it’s time!

  6. I actually want to paint my front door black!
    My house is a little bangalou built in the 60′s. The house is all painted off white with dark green trims.
    So many people are a little “taken back” hen I mention my desire for a black door…
    I saw someone saying to use glossy or semi gloss (can’t remember now)benjamin moore’s metal and wood paint. You gave me new inspiration, I was getting a little scared to paint y door black! It is currently wood, no finish.
