How to Choose the Right Colour for your Front Door

Your front door is the first thing people see when coming to your home, and the last thing they see when leaving.  The right colour sets the tone and says a lot about you and your home.  Here’s what your front door says.

Red
The colour red is associated with vitality, energy and happiness. In many cultures, red represents luck and good fortune. This is the perfect bold colour to excite people coming into your home.

Make your guests happy before they even walk in with a red door, like this one from Houzz and Julie Ranee Photography!

Yellow
Often the perfect complement to your house’s exterior, yellow is a welcoming way to go when painting your front door. It’s known as a bright, energetic colour that inspires happiness. What a great way to make a first impression!

Green
Add life to your home’s exterior with a green front door. It reflects the colours found in nature and symbolizes new beginnings. There are so many shades to choose from. Get adventurous with a slice of lime or take a more traditional approach with Greenery, which just happens to be Pantone’s Color of the Year!

Black
If you want to convey elegance, paint your front door black. It’s a bold statement of strength and sophistication, yet the simplicity brings a level of order and grace to your front porch.
