Painted doors are suited to nearly any style of home. Doors painted white can give a room a more spacious look. They can also stand out and make a bold impression. White doors can brighten a space, or calm it as a counterpoint to an environment’s darker elements. And a boldly painted front door can add a pop of color that makes a home’s exterior memorable.
But choosing the correct wood species for doors that are painted is a crucial consideration. Poplar is an excellent choice for a painted finish, providing a solid wood alternative to composite materials so often used when a painted door finish is desired. With little to no knots, Poplar is a hardwood with a relatively straight grain and fine, even texture. It accepts paint very well. It is also significantly less expensive than other clear hardwood species like Mahogany, Cherry, select Alder, and Sapele.
