Choosing a color for your front door can be a fun and exciting way to add some personality and curb appeal to your home.

Here are a few popular front door colors to consider:

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.

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.

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?
