While it might seem trivial at first, painting your front door is one of the quickest ways of sprucing up your home’s exterior. Experts will tell you that the color you paint your front door is the first impression a person gets as they walk up to your porch. It gives the outsider a little sneak peek into what the rest of your home looks like.

Needless to say, you want to choose a color that stands out. One that reflects your personality while boosting your curb appeal.

Thinking about giving your front door a little makeover? Here are a few tips on color selection that will make sure you get the perfect results.

Choose a Complementary Color

Before anything, the color you choose should complement the rest of your house. In no way does this mean you shouldn’t contrast. On the contrary, you want it to stand out as much as possible. Still, your color of choice should be harmonious with the colors painted on your walls.

At the same time, don’t be afraid to go for bolder colors like red or green. Since the door is only a small section of the whole house, you can afford to break the rules and experiment. Very rarely does it come out as overbearing, in which case, you can always switch to another hue.

Go For a Color that Reflects Your Personality

The best part about being a homeowner is that you have full creative control over your decor. No matter how crazy or outrageous, you can choose whichever color you want for your front door and run with it.

For this reason, our second tip for you is to choose a color that you actually like or one that reflects your personality and style. Whether it is that splash of lime green, yellow or orange to make a bold statement or something less daunting like burgundy or forest green, go for something that you’d like to see every day as you pull up to your driveway.

Go classic or Stain Even!

You can never go wrong with the classics. Some neutral hues such as black, gray, brown, or navy blue result in this cool look that will stand the test of time. If you are a fan of the natural wooden look, a simple stain can work just as well. When done right, stain on wood comes out really elegant and modern.

To sum up!

When it comes to painting your front door, there is really no one-shoe-fits-all super-pro-tip. It mainly falls down to your style and preference. Just go for a color that speaks to you. Using a wild, unexpected color will go miles in livening up the space.
