Make your Front Door Pop with Color

A quick and easy way to improve your home’s curb appeal is by painting your front door. It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do! It’s also true that the color of your front door means something to those that visit, and can say something about you and your personality. Read on for some ideas on how to make the most out of the entry into your home.

Be bold

Want a bold look on the exterior of your home, but worried about how it will turn out? Consider keeping your house color neutral and go bold with your door as a less risky option. Think turquoises, lime greens and oranges, or darker doors in a high-gloss finish such as black or navy.

Consider where you live

Geography can play a role in color choice. For example, in the southwest you will see more bold colors because of the bright, intense sunlight. In cooler climates such as Seattle, you might find deeper, darker color choices such as emerald greens or ocean blues.

Glass and wood

In the southern regions we are seeing homeowners replacing traditional wood doors with glass doors, and color is often secondary. In these cases, muted charcoal grey or black are often used for trim work.

Staining wood is also becoming popular, creating a natural, earthy look to an entry.
