What does your front door colour say about you?

Your front door colour shouldn’t be an afterthought. It is the first thing people see when they walk into your home. You want it to be welcoming and give your home curb appeal. A quick and cheap way to give your entrance way a makeover is by painting your front door.

You can paint your front door anything you’d like, but a few tips will help your door stand out or blend in, suit a design style and your vision.

Your door will be exposed to outdoor elements, using the proper paint will prevent peeling and fading later. Latex exterior paints provide weather-resistant coverage. If your door is metal, look for one with built-in rust protection. No matter what you choose, you will need to go over the door with an exterior primer first. Exterior paints are available in a variety of finishes—matte, semigloss, glossy, etc. A glossy finish will bring out architectural details and you won’t see so many finger prints.
Consider the main colour of your home. Whether it’s exposed brick, weatherboard, a rendered scenario or some other material, the dominant colour of your home needs to be worked with the colour you pick for your front door.

It is wise to think about the colours inside your home – particularly in your entryway. The door is going to open into it, and the front door painted in a dramatic hue will be quite impactful here.

Some of our favourite colours right now:
• Canary yellow
• Pinks – salmon, blush or persimmon (steer clear of ballet pink)
• Green – forrest, sage mint
• Blue – navy, teal or turquoise
• Burnt orange
• Deep plumb red/purple
