Whether you go bold, subtle, or neutral, your front door is the first impression to everyone, including your guests, neighbors and potential buyers. Extend a gracious welcome and give your door a makeover. All you need is a can of paint and a few hours to elevate your home’s first impression.
A Case for Contrast
Adding a statement color to the front door is comparable to what a silk scarf or tie does for an outfit—a small dose of color can do wonders to uplift the façade of a home while complementing the architecture and surrounding landscape.
Hot shots of green, yellow or orange are naturally warm and exuberant. Vivid accent colors make a strong design statement but mix surprisingly well with most other shades, especially the neutrals most often used as the primary color of a house.
Green, gray and blue doors are a naturally gracious expression for the entrance to your home, especially when they contrast with a house’s warm undertones. For impact, search for saturated colors that will pop from surrounding architecture.
A Nod to Neutral
Neutral is always a good choice, and if it’s done right… makes a statement. Choose a bright white, or a charcoal grey or a rich brown. These colors are calm and serene and a lovely way to greet guests.
Exterior leads to Interior
Take your color cues from inside the house to pick a paint color you’ll love. Think about the colors of the space your door will open into, and what the closed door looks like from the inside. Pull a strong accent color from those spaces for color continuity or choose a more saturated shade of a primary interior color.
