Hi guys. I need some help/opinions on what colour I should paint my wooden framed windows and sliding door in the master bedroom.

Can the frames on the inside be a different colour to the outside. Eg white on the inside, charcoal on the outside.

Has anyone done this or have pictures?

From the dawn of day Interiors and exteriors have been a different colour. I don’t see why you can not!

Yes you can combine colours… looks really effective when executed well

I have done vivid white on the outside of French doors and whisper white on the inside and it looks fine. I also have an internal door whisper white on the inside and lexicon quarter on the other side and you don’t really notice it. You can do two different colours. Also, I have painted our front door Porters van helsing ( a black/blue) on the outside and lexicon quarter on the inside. I think it’s common to paint a front door different on either side.

My inside & outside wooden window frames have never been the same colour. My inside ones are now white & my outside ones have had a few different colours... now painting them in 'Dune'. So your inside ones as white & outside charcoal will look great!
