Paint the Front Door: 7 Great Color Choices to Brighten Your Home’s Focal Point

The front door of any house is the focal point, the main entry way. Whether you’re selling your house or just want to improve your curb appeal, take a good look at the front of your home and decide if it says welcome.

A freshly painted door can enhance the appearance of any house. And this time of year is the perfect time to get your door in beautiful shape. Stains and oil-based paints need to go on while low temperatures stay above 40 degrees. For latex paints, wait until the lows are in the 50 degree range. If you don’t see an opportunity this week to paint, use that time to plan. It is always a good idea to consult a paint professional at your local paint or hardware store for the best tips on paint types, brushes and other equipment you may use.

Enhance your front door with colors that speak about you, the homeowner, or match them perfectly to your house-style personality. Either way you decide to choose a color, the fresh paint will add to your home’s curb appeal. If one exists, be sure to paint the screen door the same color. Here are some great common color choices for your front door and what the color may say about you, the homeowner.
