I'm in the progress of renovating a rather cheap looking 80's construction rental duplex for my own habitation. It has really crappy flat hollow core doors which have to go.
Here's what vexes me. I want to go with solid doors, maybe a rustic two panel or a standard 6 panel. They are cheap enough in pine from the box stores, less than $100. I'd kind of like nicely finished doors though rather than painted. I'd also like to replace the boring angled/mitered casings with fluted/rosette casing. Fortunately the windows are recessed without casing so I don't have to deal with them also.
The problem is that I don't want to open a can of worms that will lead me to having to replace and finish every single white painted floor molding, door casing, and door jam in the house. Not only would it be a huge and expensive job, this may one day return to being a rental property and I don't think the average renter would appreciate or take care of expensive finished hardwood molding.
So my question is, how funny would it look to keep my existing jams and floor molding, replace the casings, and keep everything white, but then add natural or stained hardwood doors? It seems unconventional at best since every photo I can find of finished doors also has finished jams/casing/molding.
