I’m a firm believer that you can paint your front door just about any color you like and make it work. It’s all a matter of coordinating the door color with your home’s architecture and the other colors and materials on the house. When I work with design clients to select exterior color palettes, I often tell them a good starting point is to select a front door color they love or pick their main siding color first.
All too often we get confused and overwhelmed trying to nail down a complete color palette all at once and end up feeling unenthused about the individual colors selected. But if you start with, say, a fantastic front door color, and then select the other materials and hues to support this choice, you may have an easier go of it. To help inspire you, I’ve gathered examples of unusual front door colors and developed sample paint palettes you can try out on your own home.
