Your front door is the centerpiece of your entryway. It should make a statement about you. Are you traditional, earthy, bold, or contemporary? The color of a front door says a lot about the homeowners. What do you want it to say about you?

You might be ready for a front door makeover. If your front door just doesn’t deliver the look you want, you should check out replacement doors. Today’s door manufacturers are giving us more choices than ever for style, plus the choice of high-definition, energy-efficient woodgrain fiberglass or steel and durable wood.

Now let’s look at how you can do front door color DIY that WOWs! Here are colors that are trending this year.

A fire engine red front door draws attention and works surprisingly well with many home styles, like modern and cottage. A deeper red adds a pop of color while also blending with many exterior colors, from light shades to deep hues.

Blue says “harmony”. Painting your front door in a lighter shade of blue–like cerulean, robin’s egg, and coastal blues– creates a sense of calmness for your entryway. A bold turquoise trimmed in white is both cool and exciting. A navy blue door gives the works well with contemporary and traditional home designs and colors.

Vibrant green is a big color for front doors this year. It’s a friendly color that reflects the earthiness of green grass and the soothing energy of relaxing in your garden.

If you’re thinking about something subtler, you can never go wrong with an earthy shade. Kick it up just a notch. Make the gray a little warmer or maybe nudge it towards a hint of lavender. Push the beige toward mocha, yellow, or even soft peach.

You can do so much with color. A can of paint is a small investment in boosting your home’s curb appeal, and the simple change delivers a huge return. Give it a try. Remember, you can always paint over it.
