What Do You Think Of Black Interior Doors?

Yes, I usually write about other than decor but I still have to be aware of what's one of the supposed hot new design themes.

Today I read on Houzz that painting interior doors black is quite the 'rage'. I'll make a trip to the newest housing development shortly and see if they are doing this yet!

Reasons they suggest ~

1) Makes a room more elegant.
2) Of course they accent anything else in the room that is black.
3) The color helps disguise unflattering items.
4) This one is my favorite ~ They Frame Views ~ Most definitely, and I love this pic!

5) They help pull your guests eye away from another black void in the room (think ugly old large never used fireplace).
6) They make a Home Depot/Lowe's cheap door look a bit more special.
7) It says they don't show fingerprints.....hmmmm, not sure about that one.
8) They mark a destination. Yes, when it's that bold of a color you can't help but see where you are going!
9) Oooooh, the do look great with dark floors too!
10) Instead of using a large mirror, a black door sure would have some shine to it.
11) Very good point for older homes.....They make a ceiling look taller.

How many of my readers are gonna go out and try this now??
