Final door colour choices

HHassist's picture

I've narrowed down the door colour choice to 4 -- but they're practically the same, so what I need help with here is choosing which manufacturer to go with. The choices are:

SICO Nunanvut 6181-83
BEHR Bitter Chocolate 790B-7
BM Bittersweet Chocolate 2114-10
BM Night Shade 2116-10

I seem to recall reading somewhere that Behr paint isn't good when it comes to dark colours. I've never had trouble wih Behr paint before, but I've never gone with anything too dark.

Any recommendations for which manufacturer makes the best dark paints??

Thanks for the suggestions. I've had good experiences with all three brands of paint, so it's really hard to narrow it down to one. That being said, my first instinct was to go with Sico Nunavut, so I guess I'll stick with that :)

Dreamer, there's no particular reason why I'm not considering Turret Stair. I've heard of people having bad experiences with RL paint, but everyone on the boards who have used it seem happy with it.

Now, if I can just get up the courage to cover up my white doors with dark brown.... I get traumatized just thinking about it!! :o

RH -Is that because you think Sico makes the dark colours with the best coverage, or do you just like that colour the best?

Smoodgie, did you give any thought to Turret Stair or did that purplish undertone discourage you? I am on the verge of buying the paint for my gloomy teen rooms. I am using a Ralph Lauren primer, and it is covering VERY well. I am considering trying to find RL colours similar to the BM colours for the walls too. I just don't want to have to paint too many coats...
