What color should I paint my front door when I paint the exterior of my home?

When choosing the colors for the exterior of your home many homeowners forget about their front door color.  This is where the focal point of your home should be.

Look at it like this, when you and your spouse are driving through neighborhoods looking at other peoples home trying to pick colors for your home’s exterior also pay attention to front doors and garage doors. You will find when you are looking at homes your eye goes to either the front door or garage door first, then to the color of the home. You never want your garage door to be a focal point.  I always recommend to my clients to paint their garage door the same color as their home, and to paint the front door an accent color to draw people’s attention to the front door.  If you are noticing the front doors and garage doors as you drive by other people’s homes, then this is what you will want other people to do to yours.

Pick out an accent color that compliments your homes exteriors base color and trim color, but one that makes a statement and give you home’s exterior that WOW factor.  You can also add some additional landscaping to yours homes entrance way to compliment your new front door color.
