Why does your front door color matter?
When it comes to the exterior of our homes, choosing the right color for our front doors can make a significant impact on the overall aesthetic.
Front door paint colors such as yellow and red are perfect for those who want to make a statement and create an inviting atmosphere. If you prefer a more natural look, wood tones are a great option that can add warmth and coziness to your entryway.
For a calming and relaxing feel, blue and green shades are the way to go. Whatever color you decide on, remember to choose one that matches the tone of your home’s exterior and expresses your personal style.
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!

Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams have several paint color variations that are perfect for a front door. An option if you are having trouble visualizing is to use either of the visual color tools and play around with the colors. You can upload your image and swap out colors to see what you like.
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 front door below.
Our front door above features a dark brown stain color which brings out the wood grain.
The split level house below that we renovated features a warm toned stain on the front door which we also added to the garage doors to create a cohesive look
Pink Front Door
A pink front door (I’m not a fan of a purple front door) can look beautiful if coordinated with a historic stone building or featured with older barn trim as shown below.
I remember when we had to pick a door color at our previous 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!
Can you tell I like yellow doors along with the color red? Colorful front door colors are so easy to implement with paint and little bit of time.
