Choosing the Right Colour for Your Front Door
Your front door greets you many times a day; when you leave for work in the morning and come back in the evening, when you welcome guests into your home when you open the door, or go out to pick up your freshly-delivered package – so why not make it pleasant to look at?
The colour of your front door can make or break the look of your home’s exterior. Choosing the colour that is right for your door seems simple enough, but there are actually a few things to consider before touching the brush to the door.
Why Does the Colour of Your Front Door Matter?
The front door is your home’s first impression for guests and by-passers. It can affect your mood or reflect your personality. It can also increase the curb appeal and value of your home, by setting the tone for the rest of your exterior and interior.
Start by getting a general feel for your home’s exterior. What is the theme of your home? Perhaps your theme is mid-century modern, contemporary, Victorian, or rustic. What is your colour palette? Maybe it is neutral, earthy, or vibrant – you can draw from organic matter, stone, and other materials and elements to help you with this.
Ideally, you will want the colour of your front door to match or compliment the colour of your door frame, as well as your front-facing windows and garage door. Do you want to go with a monochromatic theme or let your imagination run wild? Whether you want your front door to blend in or stand out is completely up to you. If you are unsure which colours work well together, you may resort to colour resources.
Keep in mind, different types of paint have different uses. You want a thick, opaque outdoor paint that will go on smooth and avoid peeling and fading. Select the paint that is best for your door’s material, and desired finish. If you need some direction with this, it is always a good idea to do some research and reach out to a professional.
If you are in need of a completely new door, Luma Doors + Windows offers a wide array of fiberglass and steel front doors in a variety of colours to match your home.
