I have long wanted to paint the doors in our family room white. Painting the doors and trim white allowed for more neutral decorating, a more cohesive feel from room to room and makes our family room feel brighter and bigger. Below you will see what a difference the white paint makes in our family room!
Painting Doors White in our Family Room

When we moved into our farmhouse over 5 years ago the trim in our home was a kaleidoscope of colors. The moldings, fireplaces, trim and doors were painted a variety of sage green, mustard yellow, taupe, grey, colonial blue and red. Yikes! Over time, we repainted all of the trim in our home white except… the family room.
Here’s 2 pics from our family room showing the red trim just a few short years ago…
Jason and I had differences of opinion when it came to the red paint. He likes the uniqueness of it and that it hid the kids fingerprints and dust well.
Fast forward 5 years and he finally
gave in compromised on it 🙂 and let me paint the doors in our family room. You may notice that the large picture window is still red.
That is because it took me 2 days and 3 coats of paint to finish the sliding, 6 panel and french doors. But I was too excited not to share our progress so far and I have put my paint brush down for now. It may be white yet!
We also changed out our pellet stove for a wood stove that is much prettier in my opinion.
More on that to come!
I am sure we will continue to make changes to this room over time as we always have. There is no doubt what a difference white paint makes!
I hope this encourages anyone on the fence whether or not to paint your doors and trim white!
