Painting your front door is a simple approach to making your home stand out. Whether you want to incorporate your personality into the exterior or increase curbside appeal for prospective buyers, it can be challenging to determine which color will work. We worked with our paint department to select eight colors perfect for your front door based on current trends and popular picks in the area.
Dark blues, often leaning toward navy, have become a more common color for a front door. Blueberry 2063-30 is an excellent choice if you are looking for a bold blue that is not too dark. This shade is a classic blue, bright and energetic without appearing too intense or irregular.
According to our paint department, Caliente AF-290 has been the go-to red for a front door. While red is already considered a classic, favored color for a front door, there are still many hues to choose from. Caliente, in particular, is charismatic and radiant. This Benjamin Moore bestseller is even described as a “classic red,” making it the ideal color choice for your front door.
A deep green front door will make a statement and add refinement to your home. Fiddlehead Green 2041-20 is an exquisite shade, as it is bold, attractive, and dignified. This is the ideal color for anyone looking to add earthy energy to their home’s exterior.
A front door in any shade of gray has been trending for years. This is understandable, as gray is neutral and fits with many exteriors. Kendall Charcoal HC-166 is a highly admired and often recommended shade of gray. This color is rich and neutral, making a statement without appearing exaggerated.
There appears to be quite the divide on a black front door. While it stands firmly as one of the most popular paint shades and has proven to increase home value, some are still very opposed to it, typically finding it unwelcoming. Regardless, a black front door is undoubtedly a trend that makes a statement. Both luxurious and grounded, Onyx 2133-10 is an excellent shade of black. This color is another Benjamin Moore bestseller.
A pale green front door is viewed as grounding and peaceful. This shade is even considered trendy and modern. Concurrently, it also reminisces nature, an increasingly popular element in interior design trends. Southfield Green HC-129 is a light, lively shade perfect for this trend.
Another stylish front door color is a soft rose red. Toasted Mauve 1279 is a stunning rich rose shade with a hint of pink. It is an excellent alternative to the classic red and a subtle way to include the pink aesthetic that has been trending.
A powder blue front door will stand out from the darker blues trending. This pleasing color has its own connection to nature in its similarities to water and the sky. Whipple Blue HC-152 is a vibrant, charming, and energizing shade.
