What Color is Ideal for My Front Door?

Seeking to update your residence’s exterior? Or make it more appealing to potential homebuyers? A new front entry door is a fantastic way to make your house attract attention.

There are many styles and colors to select from when you’re beginning door replacement in Cheyenne, but we’re available to help. Our Pella of Cheyenne design consultants are experts in helping you find just the right exterior door to highlight your home’s architectural style.

Once you decide on a style, the appropriate color on your new Pella® door can make it stand out. Here are our suggestions when you’re thinking about what color your front door should be.

How Your Residence’s Style Influences Front Door Color

Initially, you’ll want to think about your home’s architecture. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can influence the style for your door replacement, as well as the color.

We typically see standard colors—including dark blues, greens, reds or black—used with a traditional-style residence. If you own a contemporary or farmhouse-style house, try choosing brighter colors that enhance your home’s outside.

If your home has darker-colored siding, adding a light-colored door can really pop. But it’s good to know that lighter colors such as white and tan can be more difficult to keep clean.

It’s ideal to use some contrast, but don’t overdo it. We suggest sticking with a couple of corresponding colors for the siding, trim and accents including doors.

Based on the type of siding your home has, here are a couple corresponding front door colors:

  • Brick exterior—dark blue or navy
  • Gray siding—dark blue, navy or red
  • Green, white or tan siding—red
  • Light blue or black siding—dark blue or navy

If you’re selling your home, it’s crucial to keep your potential buyers in mind. It might be better to go with more classic colors, such as blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too boldly colored, like pink, purple or orange, could be a turnoff for future buyers.

At Pella of Cheyenne, we can help you choose the ideal exterior entry door to complement your house and increase your curb appeal. Contact us at 307-632-6373 right away to start your exterior door replacement project.
