While giving the exteriors of your home a facelift, are you skipping or neglecting the front door – the most important part of your home’s exterior? By styling the front door right, you can give your guests a stylish welcome. While there are several ways to decorate your front door, choosing the right colors is one of the effective ways to amp up the visual appeal of your home, and we are here to help you choose the right colors for your front door:
1) In sync with the surrounding wall colors
One simple way to choose colors for your front door is to take visual cues from the surrounding wall colors. This approach helps you create a thought-out look for the exteriors of your home.
For example, if you have painted the front walls beige or with other similar neutrals, then natural wooden colors go right with the color scheme. If your front door has a natural barewood finish, improve its appearance by polishing it. Another option is to choose a light or a dark wooden color such as our shades Afterburn (1D0219) and Autumn Leaves (1D2017), and transform the door’s look. Apply 2 coats of exterior primer on the door to make sure the colors come out right. Explore exterior primer price at https://www.bergernepal.com/product/undercoats
2) Go monochrome
For small homes, a monochrome look can help you create a decluttered look. Paint the front walls, door headers, and columns white so that they visually blend in together. Next, paint the front door completely with black; our balanced black shade Tuxedo Tail (8A2693) makes a great choice.
Choosing a glossy black paint will help you create a chic look. To get more creative with the color, paint the door knob golden. Keep a couple of potted plants to add a dose of greenery.
3) Stick with the classics
Nothing beats classic colors when it comes to withstanding the test of time. If you have a vintage, cottage-style home, a dark green color like our Shaded Woods (8A2664) creates the right retro-chic look.
The timeless character of this color helps your home’s facade stay in vogue amidst the changing seasons and trends. Choose metals such as copper and bronze for a doorknob and front lighting fixture to effortlessly pull off the classic, timeless look.
4) Take the bold approach
Things, at times, get boring when you play by the rules. One safe way to artistically break away from the convention is to create a striking color contrast – if the exterior wall colors are light, then paint the front door with a bright color.
Our bright blue shade Blue Daydream (5T0294) creates a striking contrast against a white backdrop. Apart from the front door, you can also use the color to bring the windows and trims to life. The shade makes a vibrant and attractive interior wall paint color as well.
