Spring Inspiration: Refreshing your door with a glossy new coat of paint is a quick way to make a lasting first impression.
A Case for Contrast
Most exterior paint colors and materials lean toward neutral shades, so a colorful front door is a chance to express your personal style through a central exterior architectural feature. Adding a statement color to the front door is also an easy way to uplift the façade of a home while complementing the architecture and surrounding landscape.
Hot shots of red, 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.
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.
Notes on Harmony
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. Pull a strong accent color from those spaces for color continuity or choose a more saturated shade of a primary interior color.
