I’m contemplating painting our front door. I’ve actually already chose the color, and I’m pretty excited about it. But when I was going through the process of picking a color, I got to thinking about all the colors out there.
So, I was wondering, if you could paint your front door any color you wanted, what color would you paint it?

By The Way, I chose Valsper Olive Garden, which is kind of a sage/olive color.

I chose “other” because I would paint it a charcoal colour. Our neighbours did it and I’m SOOOO jealous. It looks FABULOUS.
Now I can’t, obviously, because it would totally look like I copied their fab taste. lol.

Depends on the base color of the house as well as the roof,for me. I had a pink door at my last house with grey siding and white trim.
This house was white with black shutters and roof, so I painted the front door a deep burgundy. Once we painted it (the whole house) in 2 shades of the same color (darker shade on shutters and trim), I glazed over the burgundy with a bronze color.

We recently painted our front door bright red. It’s Heritage Red from Benjamin Moore. our main house color is a slate gray with white trim. it looks close to this picture (that’s not our house but the exact door color)

A person in a neighborhood near mine has a sunny yellow door, and it looks amazing. That color never would have occured to me, but it looks surprisingly great. I don’t own a home yet, but if the style of my house worked with it, I would love to paint my door yellow.

Ours is a brick red (my husband thought I was crazy when I suggested it) and we love it. I think it really depends on the colours of the rest of your house.
You can kind of see it in this (obviously old) photo:

Ours is white, which works really well with our brick front and white trim. However, I have always dreamed of having a bright red door with grey paint, just like @Meowkers: posted!!! But with brick, the bright red would look kinda weird…

One’s front door should “pop” so it is the central feature and be welcoming. So yes taking into consideration what else is going on is VERY important. Your front door colour should also coordinate well (not be jarring) to your interior decor as it does swing inwards.
Over the years, I’ve had front doors in every primary colour, as well as White & Black (I like brights)
Mr TTR and I are considering ordering a new front door for our house as part of a Renovation we are doing. The most difficult part will be picking out a colour… the manufacturer paints the door at the factory with a special paint that offers UV protection (guaranteed not to fade) and also a coating so the paint won’t chip, crack, peel etc. They will colour match anything we like…
Honestly the tough thing is going to be picking the colour… I also find our brick (which is antiqued… to look like reclaimed brick) is difficult to work with colourwise.

I actually have a can of paint that is destined for the front door, but I haven’t done it yet. Our house is pale yellow and our door is this awful mauve color. So we picked out a nice grey color that will look great!

When we put up new siding a couple years ago, I saw a picture of a house with same color siding we were using. Their doors were an oil rubbed bronze color, and I thought they were sooo gorgeous. So that’s what color I painted our doors. But since we have to have storm doors on our house, you couldn’t see how beautiful they were. It just looked like a dark hole. So I had been thinking about changing to something lighter that would show up for a while now.
My first thought was red, but our neighbor has a red door, red window boxes, and a red rocking chair on her porch. So, that was out. I really liked the idea of a light blue, because our house is very country cottage. Darling Husband didn’t like any of the pictures I showed him with light blue.
So I decided on Green. Wanted something that would blend in but still look fresh. I knew I didn’t want a kelly green or a hunter green… I really wanted an apple green, because I just love that color, but it was too clean looking and made the house look a little dingey. The olve garden color is almost like a muted apple green, so it was a nice compromise.
