20 colorful front door colors 2022

20 colorful front door colors featuring mustard yellow and red as my favorite! I personally love yellow front doors as the color goes with white, gray, blue, brick and stone exterior siding. Picking a front door color can seem overwhelming but it’s just paint so if you don’t like it, you can always repaint it! 

How to pick a front door color

I remember when we had to pick a door color at our old house, it was such an ordeal! My dad didn’t think much of the door design (we had to get a new door) and could have cared less about the door paint color!

When picking a front door,  you need to be mindful of whether or not you want to let natural light in or not. Front doors with sidelights and glass provide a lot of natural light!

I love the side-lights on this black front door below.

Traditional Home

A navy blue front door is perfect if you have light colored exterior siding and you want to add a pop of color. Navy blue doors are traditional and classic. The navy blue Craftsman style front door below looks gorgeous with the cedar shingle siding below.

I love the deep red doors below with the contrasting warm wood ceiling. Another Craftsman door below for the win!

I think a bright red door is #1 on my list.

Front Door Color Ideas

If a painted front door isn’t your style, then how about a stained front door? Maybe a dark or lighter shade depending on your exterior house color? I personally love the darker stained front door below against the stone facade.

The light natural color stained door below has a peep hole similar to our new front door! We moved into our new home almost 4 years ago and the Mediterranean front door is arched with cute little peep hole like the one below.

Another lime green front door below with smaller windows across the top provides privacy while letting in natural light.

Can you tell I like yellow doors along with the color red? Heading into 2022, I am willing to bet that the colorful front door themes will continue. Colorful front door colors are so easy to implement with paint and little bit of time.

Simply buy whatever color paint you love, and start painting! Depending on the texture of your door and what it is made of, you may need to apply a primer as a base coat. I think I may paint our front door a bright red for the spring until we get our new door. How about you, do you have any front door colors in mind for your front door?

  1. I love a yellow door. The 764 yellow door is exactly like mine. I think you have to take in account the exterior colors of your home. My house would look terrible with a yellow door.

  2. LOVE this roundup! Such a cheerful post!

    Painting our front door is on my list this year, but I am so overwhelmed with all the amazing color choices! Any one of them would be fab!!


  3. I’m trying to find a door color that will look good with red/orangey brick home with white door and white shutters and accents. There’s a pic of it on my blog in ‘welcome, my first post.’ This is something I’ve been fretting over for awhile. Spring is here in Texas, and I want it done. I love black, but think it might stick out like a sore thumb…

  4. I am soooo ready for Spring. LOVE this post. We have a yellow front door & I love it. I don’t think it’s my husband’s favorite, but I told him he needs to deal with it. 😉


  5. I like the green door with the etched windows! I wanted a green door, but my family went with a red door instead. (Which also works, but I LOVE green!)

    Also — did you think about what color you would want the interior side of your door to be? Ours is just plain white …. but maybe I can paint that part green!!! I know some people like to paint their interior doors black, but that is too dark for my home.

    Good luck!

  6. Love these doors! I really like the ones with the windows towards the top, so people can’t see inside. I’ve been wanting to paint our front door plum, but I need some warm weather!

  7. We moved eight months ago into a home whose front door was rotting and moldy :/ We bought a new door and side-lights (more wood-rot, y’all!) and I painted them the perfect bright red. It’s called “Front Door Red” and it’s Valspar. Our new door was primed so I thought I’d be OK, but good gravy. I had to paint three coats of the red and it’s still not perfect. It was recommended that instead of painting the bright red over white/primer, I paint the door with a tinted gray primer. Lesson learned! If Spring ever comes, I’m going to sand it down some and touch up.

  8. #14 of 21…………what color yellow is that?

  9. This is beautiful – can you give me some info on where to find this? is it custom?


    1. it’s door number 1206 – graphic queen! thanks

  10. Can you tell me what the color of door number 6 is please??

  11. Edward Allen says:

    Nice selection of door designs and color. Having great deal of difficulty duplicating the exterior colors of picture # 8. It would be helpful if the paint and stain colors were listed with the pictures. Do you have the paint and stain selection? If so would you make it available?

    1. Edward Allen says:

      Can you please tell me color of the front door and siding of door #8 please.

  12. What is the name of the green paint color you used?????

  13. What color is the blue with the black shutters?
