Your home’s front entrance makes a statement—what do you want that statement to be? If you want to welcome people inside and if you’re proud of your home, make sure you show it.
One way to transform your home’s curb appeal and increase the value of your property is to change the color of the front door. It’s an easy home project that has a huge impact.
Here are five of our favorite front door colors you need to try.
1. Turquoise Blue
Turquoise, aquamarine, robin’s egg blue, and teal are all part of popular front door color palettes that make you think of the sea and sky. They make an excellent choice for coastal homes, though you don’t have to live by the water to try this color.
Natural front door color trends aren’t going anywhere soon, so they have plenty of staying power.
This color looks particularly stunning next to large planters that add a pop of greenery. It also looks striking with white walls and exterior elements.
2. Classic Red
One of the most popular front door colors is red. This color pops against brick homes but looks good with any exterior. Red is inviting and has welcoming energy.
People used to paint their doors red to indicate their house was a safe place for travelers to rest. These days, it can signify that you want to be a part of the community.
3. Coral Pink
This soft and pretty color evokes feelings of spring flowers, tropical shores, and vacation getaways. Much like painting a door shades of blue, choosing coral pink or salmon for your front door is a great choice for coastal homes.
It has a nice feminine look when paired with white trim and walls but it also looks spectacular with darker shades of gray, like charcoal.
4. Rich Black
A black front door makes an elegant statement. If you want to paint your front door but you’re not sure you’ll like the color years from now, black is a good choice. It looks good with any home, from classic colonial to contemporary and everything in between.
If black seems too dark, you can always go with a nice navy blue. This color evokes the same feeling of elegance, but some may see it as a more interesting or welcoming color.
5. Shades of Gray
The best color for front doors is often a neutral shade, like gray. There are many variations of gray, and the undertones in the paint can make it look cooler or warmer. For instance, you might pick a shade of gray you like with undertones of green or purple.
If you’re doing a home remodel and you want to change the look of your front entrance as well, you might be surprised how much a fresh coat of gray paint can transform the look of your exterior.
