When a home owner decides to change the look of the home and has something that’s likely a significant investment already installed in an area of the home such as a pair of intricate iron doors, often replacing something so valuable is not likely to happen but change in the design can still be accomplished to create a different look for the space. One of the best options is to paint the doors in a particular color that goes with the rest of the redesigned area. For example, if the room itself was something like orange and brown before but has been turned completely white, a pair of black iron doors might not exactly look right. But the doors don’t have to be painted white as well to match.
A good color to paint iron doors when the overall color within the space is white is actually not a full paint job but one in which the surface is made to appear as though it was painted white a hundred years ago but aged over time to create a great antiqued look. There are some different methods available for accomplishing an antiqued look with paint and the steps usually just include some extra attention paid to the surface as the paint is drying when something like a sponge or other items is dragged over the surface before it dries. The balance in a room can be destroyed if the colors aren’t right so it’s important to look carefully at what the best colors might be.
