A front door says a lot. It’s what people see when they drive by; it’s what greets you and guests when you enter. Picking the right color for your front door can help bring life, cohesion, and personality to your new custom home. The right front door can also boost curb appeal.
Colors say a lot. Red is bold while blue is calming. You want to talk to your custom home builder and make sure that you pick a color that not only matches your home’s personality but your own too. So what do different colors say about your custom home?
Red is a bold, passionate color. If you want your front door to stand out then red is the color for that. The great thing about this color is that it works well against most exteriors from exposed brick to traditional siding. Red symbolizes luck in many cultures and despite its boldness, it is also classic and traditional.
Orange is a bright color that screams fun. It can be a bit much for some people so custom home builders suggest going for a darker, burnt or pumpkin orange. It will still look bold but without being overpowering. Orange looks great against green and blues as these are opposite it on the color wheel.
Yellow is a sunny, bright, cheerful color. It makes your home seem fun and inviting. Yellow doors work particularly well set against gray, blue, and white homes as it can really pop then. Whether you go for a bright sunshine, a deep mustard, or a golden shade, a yellow door will wake up your home.
Green is a calming, fresh, natural color. It invokes a sense of nature and freeness. People feel very greeted when they enter through a green door. Whether you go for a light green or a dark hunter green, this color will make your house stand out. It works well with most styles and there are endless shades out there.
A blue-green door, whether it’s teal, aqua or turquoise definitely makes you feel like you’re near the sea. You don’t have to limit the use of it to a seaside retreat. Go for a more jewel tone version for an elegant pop of color. It will make your guests feel relaxed like they just walked into a seaside hideaway.
Blue is such a versatile color that it really works for any home. Whether it’s a bold cobalt, an elegant navy, or a soft baby blue, this color will make your custom home’s front door pop. Finding the right shade of blue may take time, there are a lot of options, but once you do you won’t be disappointed. Blue is a calming, soothing color that will make people feel very welcome in your home.
Purple is an interesting color for a front door. It’s fun, whimsical, but it is also rich and elegant. It all depends on the shade you go for. A dark, jewel toned purple leans more on the sophisticated side while a brighter purple is more eccentric and energized. Purple can work equally well on traditional and modern homes.
Pink is definitely a more out there choice. But if you’re someone with a fun personality that likes to take chances then consider a shade of pink. You can go bold, light, or even coral. It says your home is a place of fun energy that is open to new ideas.
Black might seem like a boring choice but it’s actually bold, mysterious, and sophisticated. It has a classic element to it that really compliments certain homes. Whether you have a modern home or a traditional one, a black door can really make your home stand out.
Sometimes classic white is the best choice for a custom home. It can add depth, character, and even soften a home. It will really pop, especially if your home is already a bold color. White can be both classic and modern, fitting any style of home.
Gray comes in a variety of shades, which is great because it means you can find one to match your home. Gray leans more towards modern and sophisticated. If your home is already a bold color a neutral gray door can actually stand out more than a color could.
