A well-chosen front door color creates an immediate impact, complements your home’s style and improves curb appeal. If you’ve decided to change entry door to one whose color reflects your personal style, Valiant Home Remodelers shares a few tips to help you.
Consider Your Home’s Style and Personality
The best place to take inspiration from is your home’s existing color palette. For instance, pastel hues would look out of place with the design of an English Tudor house, but add a certain charm to a Victorian one. Your home is a great guide for choosing what color works and what doesn’t for your front doors. You can consider your home’s materials and their inherent colors, your home’s overall style, and the surrounding landscape.
Choose an Impactful Color
Your front door is one of the first things that guests see when they visit, which makes them a prime opportunity to impress. Color can generate emotion, set the vibe for your home, and speak volumes about your personality. A bright and cheery hue offers vibrant energy to your front door while a subdued hue presents a more traditional and elegant feel.
Your doors can also be used as a tool for wayfinding. The color you choose can accent tones in your home’s exterior or provide the finishing touch to a design palette. The impact can be subtle or it can be more direct, the wide variety of shades available give you the freedom to create your desired effect.
Refer to the Color Wheel
If you’re still at a loss, you can use the color wheel as a reference. It’s a great way for you to mix and match various colors and see how they look together. General color schemes include monochromatic, analogous, contrast, and complementary. Monochromatic palettes are composed of varying shades of a single color while analogous ones are colors next to each other on the wheel. Contrasting colors are those that are spaced evenly apart on the color wheel, and complementary ones are two tones opposite one another on the color wheel.
Instead of simply painting your door, why not consider replacing it? This way, you benefit not only from improved curb appeal but also from improved energy efficiency and savings.
