This is the time of year that homeowners get the urge to improve the curb appeal of their homes. The most simple way to do this is by painting your front door. Here are some of my favorite front door colors from Benjamin Moore.
Nothing revives lackluster curb appeal quicker than a new front door color. The beauty of this is that it’s an inexpensive, and fairly simple, project for most homeowners. A roll of good quality tape, your favorite brush and roller cover, along with a top notch quart of paint (and an afternoon) is all that’s required. Because there are so many gorgeous colors to select from, I decided to narrow down the playing field for you to 12 of my favorite Benjamin Moore favorite front door colors.
Favorite Front Door Color #1
Yellow front doors are so pretty, and yet so difficult to get right. What looks so “soft” on the color chip, can easily magnify itself tenfold leaving you with something much brighter than you’d bargained for. English Scone is the answer to this dilemma. Providing just the right amount of pop without appearing garish, this soft yellow will be the color that your neighbors ask the name of time and time again.
Favorite Front Door Color #2
Here in the Midwest, homeowners with brick facades still ask me for the hunter greens and burgundies of yesteryear. Instead, why not shake things up and use a rich coral? Not only will the contrast be less stark (a good thing in my book), but it will also project the obvious color savvy of the residents inside.
Favorite Front Door Color #3
There’s something about the color of fresh cut grass that excites the senses, and this green does just that. This medium blue undertone green is especially crisp when paired with lots of white trim. Refreshing and super pretty, this color is sure to become a classic.
Favorite Front Door Color #4
Red doors have been popular for years, but this red stands head and shoulders above the rest. What makes this hue so perfect? Notice that it reads true, rather than leaning heavily toward a blue or yellow undertone. For homes that require the sophistication only a red can provide, Dutch Tulip, will delight for years to come.
Favorite Front Door Color #5
I’ve always held a special place for teal in my bag of colors. In fact, my own front door is painted in a gorgeous version of the hue. Notice how beautifully the yellow green wall sets this color off. If you’re interested in painting a door teal, think of how you might incorporate some of that color as well.
Favorite Front Door Color #6
Glossy black doors are one of a traditional home’s best friends. Both classy and classic, glossy black enhances a door’s architecture like nothing else can.
Six More Favorite Front Door Colors to Try
These final six colors are for those truly wishing to up the ante with their use of fun color at the front door. Blue Danube is a gorgeous blue that speaks more persuasively than a plain navy. Autumn Purple is no shrinking violet. In fact, it could be just the “stand out” hue you’ve been looking for. Rumba Orange adds a crisp citrus flair, while Rose Quartz is a sophisticated twist on pink. Split Pea’s yellow undertone gives this fun green shade a shot of personality, and Tropicana Cabana lends a “Tiffany’s” sparkle to any ho hum door.
My favorite front door colors are a varied list, for sure. Just be sure to sample any color you’re considering before setting aside a nice afternoon to paint.
