What should I do to my wardrobe doors!?!

Please help! Recently bought my first house and am a complete novice when it comes to DIY...

My house is a old cottage with lovely doors in every room. Currently decorating the bedroom and the door clashes horribly with the wardrobe and cupboard.

Is there anything I can do to the wardrobe doors to make them match the door to the room? Or should I just paint them white?

Thank you!

I'd paint the wardrobe doors white.

I'd paint them grey.

White for me too

If they’re pine, the knots will bleed into the white for the first few years at least.
You could get them covered with mdf and paint them with white acrylic.
You can get a lovely finish with that.

I’d paint the wardrobes doors to match the walls of your bedroom so they disappear. If you prime them properly and use knot sealant stuff they should be fine.
