Let Your Front Door Be Your Welcome Mat

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.


Warm Welcome

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.


Stay Cool

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.
