The front door is one of your home’s most visible design elements, which means it should make a great first impression from the curb. You can easily do this by taking into account its color.
1. Look to your home’s architectural style as a guide. If you want a more balanced look, choose a door color that will beautifully match with your home’s style. For instance, a door with dark hue, such as classic black or red, is perfect for vintage homes. A Modern or Contemporary home, on the other hand, will stand out better with a more vibrant door color, such as yellow or orange.
2. Match or contrast the door with your home’s exterior palette. For example, a deep red door is an excellent option for homes with gray or brick siding because it adds warmth. You can brighten homes with a white or light gray exterior using a turquoise door. This adds a nice pop of color that homeowners love, without going overboard. To highlight the entry door color, use a lovely white trim for your windows.
3. Get into the dark side. You can create a sleeker, more modern feel for your home with a black front door. But you shouldn’t overlook the hardware it uses as well. To finish the contemporary look, choose silver or polished chrome door hardware.
4. Welcome guests with shades of green. This color offers a warmer and friendlier look for your home, making visitors feel instantly welcome as they step through the door. If your home has a brick exterior, choose a nice deep green, but if you have white or cream siding, you should opt for a lighter hue.
