Use fire rated exterior door as interior door

To get better noise isolation in a bedroom I am considering using a fire rated solid door than a solidcore interior door. But the fire rated door has a sill that makes it look very odd when used as an interior door. Any ideas on how to cover up the sill so it looks more like an interior door? My GC suggested priming and painting it to match the hardwood flooring butting against it. Sounds promising but I am wondering if anyone else tried anything similar. Any suggestions?
