Need a Refresh? Here's What Color to Paint Your Front Door

Is the facade of your home looking a little...dull? 

Don't worry — you don't have to spring for all new siding to get a refreshed exterior look. In fact, simply putting a fresh coat of paint on your front door can create a whole new look and feel for your exterior. 

But now comes the tough part: figuring out what color to paint it. Let's go over the options to help you decide: 

Option #1: Your current shade

If you really like the current color of your front door — but think it looks worn and dated — then there's no need for a completely new color! A fresh coat of the same color might just be what you need to feel refreshed.  

Option #2: Same color, different shade

If you want to lighten or darken things up, this choice can be a subtle shift that makes a big difference. Look for a shade or two darker or lighter for a new look that's still inside your comfort zone.  

Option #3: Go neutral 

There's a lot to be said for neutral colors that give your home a timeless look. Consider choosing black, brown or grey (depending on the colors of your siding and shutters) for a classic, understated feel. 

Option #4: Go bold

If subtle isn't your thing, maybe it's time to repaint your door in a bold, eye-catching way. Think a bright red or a deep blue. Just be sure to think through how a bold door will look with the other exterior colors on your house.  

Option #5: Go bright

A brightly-colored front door ensures that your curb appeal is all about happy vibes. Paint your door a bright teal, yellow or other color that can't be ignored and you won't have to worry about the facade of your home feeling dull ever again.
