Seeing as your front-door color is a noticeable component of your exterior, you may want to think about giving your door a fresh coat of paint to improve your home’s curb appeal. This is especially true if your current door is starting to peel or fade. Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City and Central Missouri is here to give you four tips for choosing the next color for your front door.
1. Don’t be afraid of color. Neutrals are great for your front door, but they’re not the only colors available. You can use your front door as an accent or a pop of color for your home. Whether it is bright, dark or neutral, it’s good to choose a color that matches your home’s aesthetic.
2. Consider your surroundings. You can also take inspiration from the environment around your home. The different colors of flowers or shades of the grass can also serve as a starting point to choosing a color. The colors that appear in nature can also work well with your home.
3. Don’t choose a color indoors. One common mistake that homeowners make when choosing a paint color for their front door is choosing one indoors. The lighting inside your home is not the same as the lighting outside. Take paint swatches and tape them up on your front door. From there, try to observe how they look during different times of the day.
4. Don’t ignore the trim. Make sure to include the trim when painting your front door. White remains a safe choice, but it would be nice to have any contrasting color to make the door stand out. Do you have a cool-colored door? Consider brown tones for the trim.
Sometimes, painting your front door anew may no longer cut it. All that’s left is to have it replaced with an attractive style to boost your home’s appearance.
