My Top Three Tips for Choosing Your Front Door Color
1. With a dark roof, a deep, rich color whether the same color or in another tone of the same darkness, draws the eye upward.
2. Using a rich, deep, or even a bold color on your home can take a home from nice to knockout!
3. A lighter or brighter color will work best for a front door shaded by an overhang or set back in an alcove.
What Your Front Door Color Says About You
Need some help to find “your” color? Here is my just-for-fun, non-scientific assessment of what your front door color says about you.
- Black says I’m consistent, conservative, and reserved in my manner and my approach to color. My preferred design style is timeless rather than trendy.
- White says that I prefer things that are organized, neat, and clean. Even if my home isn’t always that way, I wish it were.
- Red tells the world to “look at me!” I am not afraid of standing out or saying what is on my mind. If your door is red, but you are someone that is not as outwardly as bold as this color, you may wish you were.
- Blue says you are naturally at ease in most situations, and people are attracted to your charming personality.
- Green tells the world you have traditional values and enjoy being a member of a community.
- Yellow says you have a personality similar to green but is a bit less traditional and likely someone who is a leader or organizer of the group.
- Orange says I’m friendly, fun-loving, and enjoy a get-together.
- Purple reveals a free spirit who is comfortable taking a risk, thinking differently, and dreaming big.
