Tips to help you choose a color for your front door


Real estate agents and realtors alike will agree that you should have a nice front door to help sell your home. Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect paint color for your entrance door. 

  • Understand the basics: Picking the right color front door isn't as easy as finding your favorite hue paint swatch at the home improvement store. There are logic and even science behind finding the right paint color. Use the color wheel to help you mix various colors together and gather a general color scheme. These schemes typically include either monochromatic (several shades of a single color), analogous (colors found side by side on the color wheel), or complementary (two hues opposite each other on the color wheel).

  • Think about your home's personality: You might be in love with a certain color for your front door, but it has to fit in with the rest of the aesthetics of your home. You don't necessarily have to follow the "rules" of color, but you don't have to take your home's style into account. For example, a pastel hue might look out of place if you have an English Tudor style home. Take into account the landscaping, materials, style, and other factors when you're picking a color.

  • Remember the impact: The front door is one of the first things people are going to see, and you want to use the front door as a tool you can use to your advantage. The color can help accent tones in the exterior or provide the finishing touch to a design palette. The impact can be subtle or direct; that's completely up to you.

Houses and real estate for sale that were properly staged before being listed on the market sold up to 79% faster than those that were staged after being listed. So before you even think about listing your house, remember that real estate for sale with a great front door will help you sell faster and even for more money.
