Choosing the Best Entry Door Colors for Your Home

Color is delightfully personal and can carry a wide range of associated emotions. Your front door’s hue speaks of the tone you desire for your home from the moment people see it. You want to make your friends and family welcome to your entry door.

Still, you also want your family to have the best door in terms of beauty, durability, security, and energy efficiency. Leap’s entry doors are built to welcome and beautify your home while protecting you and your family.

What Are the Basic Color Schemes When Choosing Entry Door Colors?

The color you choose for your front door will directly impact its appearance and overall vibe. Your door’s color should complement the color of your home’s exterior. Your entry door should also coordinate with your garage door. Here are some basic color schemes to choose from:

  • Warm—Shades of red, orange, yellow, brown, brick, and tan
  • Cool—Blues, greens, yellows and violet
  • Neutral—Between warm and cool, including white, grey, taupe, black, gold, and silver.

Questions to Help You Narrow Your Search

To discover the best entry door color that will boost your home value, begin by answering the following questions:

How Will This Entry Door Color Boost My Home’s Curb Appeal?

What does my home’s surrounding landscape look like?

  • Do I prefer my home to blend in with its surroundings or stand out?
  • How do I want people to feel when approaching my front door?
  • Which direction does my front door face? The light it receives throughout the day will impact whether the door color will appear as a warmer or cooler hue.

Does This Entry Door Color Tie Together the Interior and Exterior?

What is your home’s interior color scheme? Why not carry that to your front door and tie it all together?

  • Get a cohesive look by finding the perfect balance of color without being too matchy-matchy.
  • Style your home’s exterior to prepare guests for the interior and complement its look. It will instantly feel more welcoming to newcomers and benefit when it comes time to sell your home.

Does the Entry Door Color Suit My Area?

What type of regional influence should I consider based on the Central and Eastern NC areas?

  • Does my home sit in a large group of trees? Blend-in approach: natural greens and earth tones. Complementary approach: reds, including classic brick reds.
  • Do I prefer a seaside feel to my property? Blend-in approach: muted sea greens, light blues, or sandy colors. Complementary approach: bright, cheery colors, pastels like lemon and lavender.

What Entry Door Colors Does Your Family Love?

This one is important—express yourself with the color and style of your front door. After all, you’ll hang holiday wreaths, take family photos, and greet people you love at your front door. So you should love it!

What to Consider About Your Home’s Architectural Style When Choosing Your Entry Door Color?

When choosing an entry door color, look at your home’s design for inspiration.

  • Coastal: Get a beachy vibe with nautical or Mediterranean hues from a cool color palette.
  • Colonial: These were some of the first homes built in America. They are symmetrical and follow a warm color scheme for an elegant traditional look.
  • Modern: These sleek, clean-lined homes with neutral color schemes and minimalist design styles may be best highlighted by bold doors.
  • Victorian: These ornate homes with elaborate exteriors, intricate wood trims, and decorative molding look fabulous in bright colors that highlight their eccentric but sophisticated design elements.
  • Cape Cod: These cozy, cottage-style homes focus on simple, symmetrical architecture. The color and design elements are whimsical, chic, and rustic. Depending on the rest of the house and your preference, muted warm or cool tones work best.

Other Factors to Consider:

  • Include North Carolina’s climate in your choice.
  • Consider your property size. Lighter colors better suit smaller homes and make their entries appear larger.
  • Decide what represents your unique taste. After all, it’s your entry door!
