What color to paint closet doors?
I have a two tone 10x10 room divided by chair rail and 48" high beadboard. The top of the wall and ceiling are a light cream and the bottom is a light brown. I plan to paint the crown, chair, and baseboard semigloss white. My question is, what color do I paint the closet doors? Do I paint them the color of the top and ceiling, the color of beadboard, or white like the trim? Thanks

My suggestion would be to paint the doors white as this will set the tone of the room very nicely.

Thanks Again!

White doors for sure

Strictly a personal decision based on the house and preferences.

I would go for a dark brown or mocha (darker than the beadboard) for the door surrounded by a slightly off-white trim. I have different tastes, especially if a room does influence the decor in an adjacent room. I have been known to paint over very good trim because it did not fit the desired appearance. If you are traditional, just go to HD or a paint store and look at the color arrangements in the over-all photos to see what tickles your fancy. - Then go and buy the best paint (not the cheapest) for the job, since it will still be there after you change your mind and want a different scheme.

The door, trim and windows are just a part of the scheme. Unfortunately, you cannot paint carpeting if you want something different for the use.
