painting entry doors


when you paint the outside of an entry door a bold color such as red or black, can you carry that to the inside or shoud the inside of the entry door match the interior walls?

Sometimes it works out good. It's your house so do what you think will work.

You, of course can do whatever you like, but I would paint it a colour that would flow with the interior of your home, if you decide to go with a red or bright colour.

You at times could go with the colour that you paint it on the outside.
My door is stained a dark espresso brown on the outside and on the inside, making it neutral and it can go with anything.

This all depends on what is the message you are trying to sell on the inside. Many houses and doors I have painted are different colors inside and out. People might want to make a bold statement to their neighbors and want to have a settle light color inside. Feel free to do either!
