Door


Is it usual for a door to have two different colors or finishes on each side?

Door


If it is the entry door of the house... I would say it is very common....

if it is an internal door... it is unusal but don't think it matter... this is totally artistic thing... when match with other surrounds may looks great...

If you are referring to different looking grains of wood on a solid wood panel door...then, the answer is yes...

It's two new interior bedroom doors. Both doors face the same hallway and I want the hallway facing doorway to be a cherry stain and the room facing to remain natural wood.

In that case: no is the answer to your original question ... sorry

The problem with this is that when the doors are open, which is most of the time, they visible door color is going to be the opposite of the trim color in the bedroom; the cherry doors will be laid against the natural colored base board. I would think not a good idea.

The typical rule of thumb is that the color of the face of the door goes to the room it's in when it's closed... Period

Thanks guys. I decided to go with my original plan, one side natural and the other cherry.

The trim on either side should match the room but what about the inside jam of the door?

Door


Close the door. what ever shows to the hall, belongs with the hall. The portion of the jamb that you can't see will go to the inside room (if it's an in-swing door). The door edges go to the area that they're seen from when the door is full open.

If you have other questions, please e-mail me.
