What Color is Ideal for My Door?

Wanting to freshen up your residence’s external look? Or make it more attractive to future homebuyers? A new front entry door is a good way to make your home stand out.

There are lots of options and colors to pick from when you’re beginning door replacement in Danville, but we’re available to support you. Our Pella of Danville design consultants are experts in helping you select just the right exterior door to highlight your house’s architectural style.

Once you select a style, the right 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 House’s Style Influences Front Door Color

To start, you’ll want to think over your house’s style. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can impact the style for your door replacement, in addition to the color.

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

If your siding is a darker color, using a light-colored door can really stand out. But you should be aware that lighter colors like white and tan can be trickier to keep clean.

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

Based on the color of siding you use, here are several complementing 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 listing your home, it’s important to keep your potential buyers in mind. It might be smarter to stick with more classic colors, such as blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too boldly colored, such as pink, purple or orange, may be a sticking point for possible buyers.

At Pella of Danville, we can help you find the right exterior entry door to complement your home and boost your curb appeal. Contact us at 217-443-3355 right away to get started with your exterior door replacement project.
