The entrance to your home is very important. Whether you are welcoming guests through your front door, or you think back door guests are best, the entrance will form your guest’s first impression when they walk up to your home. I think choosing the right exterior door color is the first step in making sure that the entrance to your home conveys your family’s personality before anyone ever steps foot inside.
When choosing a color for your exterior doors, don’t overthink it! Doors are small and easy to paint. You can change your door color once a year if you want to. Painting a door is an inexpensive project that will give your nest a whole new look! I have a friend in town that changes her door color all the time. In fact, I should have interviewed her before writing this to ask just how many colors it has been since she moved in. (Yes, Candace, I am talking about you!) It is so fun to drive by her house and see a beautiful new color waving at you from the front porch!
You may want to try something bold, if so, here are my favorite picks right now for a bold front door:
If you aren’t feeling so brave, here are a two hues that will give you a softer color pop:
I am a believer that your doors should all be the same color. You may have different style doors in different areas of the house, solid doors, French doors, etc. Painting them the same color will give the outside of your home some unity and consistency. I do have one exception to this rule. If you think you want to try a wild and crazy color on the front door to make a real statement, but you are not sure you can commit to this color on every door, then keep the other doors very simple. Black doors are great on most houses as a neutral and you can always paint doors your trim color, a white or off white. I hope this has inspired you freshen up the outside of your home and try a new look! Remember, it's just paint. You can change it if you don't like it! Happy painting y'all!
