Oak kitchen cabinets........want to paint doors
August 10, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Do not want to paint the frames around the doors, how does this look? Want the doors to be a creamy white, the oak trim is just fine.

It's your house so if that's what you want, go for it.

I prefer the doors and trim to be the same, but that my house.

Are they dark stained oak? If it's natural oak, the trim might look a bit orangey against the white. Opposite concept but these are my doors upstairs. I did this to transition the dark trim in the hallway to the white trim in the rooms. The stain looks light in the pic but it's darker in person, you may want consider staining you trim darker to create a better contrast

Wow Great Place
Are you talking about painting your passage doors, and leaving the oak trim untouched, or painting your kitchen cabinet doors and leaving the cabinet frames untouched?
