Door Colors


The writers of the DIY Network are experts in all things home improvement. And as they point out, your front door just can’t be ignored. A bright, bold, contrasting, or soothing color can make a world of difference for your home’s first impression. Consider these two pieces of advice regarding color:

 Burst of Sunshine. You just can’t sustain a bad mood in the presence of a bright yellow door.

 Stately Red. “The strong ocean blue and bright red hold their own against the color of exterior stone.”

But before you get started, reference your HOA guidelines regarding the colors you’re allowed to use on your home. Guidelines often include stipulations such as “earth tones only” and so forth. However, if you’re considering some aesthetic appeal for your first impression, let this list get your imagination flowing.

The next color is yellow – associated with sunshine, summer, and happiness. It won’t work with every home (or every personality,) but when it works, man does it work! This Old House offers a subtle, rustic look to one incredibly inviting door, your guests just won’t be able to stay away.


Red – a cliché and trendy staple. And there are so many different red shades to choose from you can’t help but find one that suites the style and décor of your home. Check out this red from Better Home and Gardens– and what an amazing pop of color that white accent gives!


If the color choosing task seems too daunting, Angie’s List offers a lighthearted guide to choosing your best color. Consider these tips:

Think about the style of your home.

Look around the neighborhood, what collaborates well?

Coordinate with your exterior colors.

And some of the best advice for any seller: don’t get overboard.

If the eyes are the windows to the soul, your front door is the soul into not just your house, but your home. If you’re trying to sell, it’s important to contemplate this important first impression. If you’re happy in your current home, ensure with the right color that your front door welcomes you home each and every day.
