Top Tips on Choosing Your Front Door Colors

One of the best features of today’s front doors is they’re not as dependent on the house’s color palette. Sometimes, the more striking the color, the better. In this blog, window and doors installation company Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City shares tips on how to choose the right color for your entry doors.

Don’t Forget the Classics

There’s a reason why certain colors have become classics: they simply look good. Neutral colors such as brown, gray and black never look dated, and work with most exterior color palettes. One advantage of having a front door with a classic color is you know it will still look good even if you change your roofing and siding colors. Choose deep red or navy blue, if you want a classic look with richer colors.

Add Pop With Bright Colors

Designers will tell you that the front door is like a beacon that guides the eyes from the curb. Colors like bright red or lime green may not work for sliding doors, but they certainly work well on front entry doors. If your exterior is dominated somber or neutral colors, a brightly-colored front door adds that much-needed pop or color. Consider a darker shade if you find such colors too bright for your taste.

View Samples During Different Times of the Day

You need colors that look great at all times of the day. Unfortunately, not all colors do. Entry door contractors should be able to provide swatches of color that you can compare with the siding or trim in the morning, at noon, at sundown and in the evening. This method can help you narrow down your choices if you’re trying to choose from among several colors.

Consider the Screen or Storm Door Color

If you are looking into adding a screen or storm door, or are planning on replacing an existing one, make sure it works with the front door color. Choosing the same or similar color is an easy option, provided the screen door manufacturer offers such option. If you are selecting a contrasting color, make sure it doesn’t pull focus from the front door.
