When viewing homes to buy and looking for curb appeal, what’s the first thing you notice? The front door is the focal point of any home. This article describes the importance of color.

A Beautiful Front Door Can Add Major Curb Appeal


As a main focal point of your home’s exterior, a beautiful front door can add major curb appeal. Make a bold statement with a dark red or keep it neutral with a calm gray. What color should you paint your front door? Let’s find out!

Ravishing Red

Ravishing Red – Add a fun kick to your home with a ravishing red door. A bright red can transform any entryway from humdrum and “meh” to dazzling and eccentric. Red pairs well with navy blues, creams, and grays and is sure to make any home stand out.

Bright Yellow

Bright Yellow – Nothing says hello like a bright yellow entryway. Give your house some eye-candy with a welcoming yellow door that is sure to brighten any visitor’s day. Pair it with white walls or a darker exterior. With radiant yellow, it’ll feel like summer all year long.

Electric Blue

For more of a fun and spunky look, paint your front door an electric blue. This pop of color instantly adds life to a dull-looking exterior and looks great with vibrant flowers and plants. Don’t be afraid to get creative – add an outdoor wall light and gold hardware to give it some character.

Classic Black

Black doors that sit on a lighter exterior tend to be bold, yet still, look elegant. Splash some black on your home’s exterior to get that classic and edgy streak. With the right trim, a black door can make a big statement and add dramatic contrast to your front yard.

Amherst Gray

Gray is one of the most popular neutrals, adding a timeless and classic look to whatever it touches. Amherst Gray pairs beautifully with bright whites and creams and different variations of black. Add a modern yet enchanting touch to your home with the wide variety of undertones this color has to offer.

Sage Green

Sage Green is a beautiful earthy hue that pairs nicely with wood tones and metal finishes. Because of it’s more soothing and neutral appearance, it doesn’t overpower the rest of the home’s exterior and makes a great background for seasonal wreaths.


Looking to add some pizzazz to your home? Aubergine is a great choice for both neutral and dark home exteriors – whether your home is painted sage green or chocolate brown, you can be sure that this dramatic purple will make a bold statement.
