What Color is Right for My Entry Door?

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

There are a lot of styles and colors to choose from when you’re beginning door replacement in Owensboro, but we’re available to help. Our Pella of Owensboro design consultants are experts in helping you find just the right exterior door to correspond with your residence’s architectural style.

Once you select a look, the ideal color on your new Pella® door can make it attract attention. Here are our recommendations when you’re thinking over what color your front door should be.

How Your Residence’s Style Influences Front Door Color

Initially, you should consider your residence’s style. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can affect the style for your door replacement, in addition to the color.

We usually see standard colors—like dark blues, greens, reds or black—coupled with a traditional-style home. If you live in a contemporary or farmhouse-style house, try choosing statement colors that complement your home’s exterior.

If your siding is a darker color, adding a neutral door can really stand out. But keep in mind that lighter colors including white and tan can be harder to keep clean.

It’s good to add some contrast, but don’t go too far. We suggest choosing a couple of matching colors for the siding, trim and accents including doors.

Based on the type of siding your home has, here are a few matching 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 essential to keep your possible buyers in mind. You may want to go with more classic colors, including blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too brightly colored, like pink, purple or orange, may be a sticking point for future buyers.
