I need help with interior door & trim finish!

paul36752April 27, 2012
In the hallway there will be 7 doors; 2 bedrooms, 2 closets, entry, bathroom and laundry room. I was planning to stain the bedroom, bath and laundry room doors and paint the others white. I was also planning on white baseboard throughout and stained molding around the stained doors. The builder and lumber yard guy seem to prefer one finish for all. I was thinking that it would be good to be able to distinguish one door from the next; I've opened a closet door before thinking it was the exit door. Please give me some guidance; I want to get it right the first time. Thank you.

I would keep door and trim finish consistent throughout.

Without a picture, it is hard to say for sure... but my preference would be to keep things consistent as well. Since the baseboards are painted, I would paint the doors and trim out in the same colour to unify the look. I'm sure once you've been in the house a while, you'll know which door is which! :)
