What Color Should My Entry Door Be?

Looking to freshen up your residence’s external look? Or make it more attractive to possible homebuyers? A new front entry door is a good way to make your home attract attention.

There are many options and colors to choose from when you’re doing door replacement in Ketchum, but we’re available to help. Our Pella of Ketchum design consultants are experts in helping you choose just the right exterior door to correspond with your home’s architectural style.

Once you select a style, the right color on your new Pella® door can make it attract attention. Here is our advice when you’re thinking about what color your front door should be.

How Your Home’s Look Affects Front Door Color

Initially, you should think over your house’s look. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can influence the style for your door replacement, as well as the color.

We often see standard colors—such as dark blues, greens, reds or black—paired with a traditional-style residence. If you have a contemporary or farmhouse-style home, try choosing bolder colors that complement your home’s exterior.

If you have darker-colored siding, using a neutral door can really pop. But keep in mind that lighter colors such as white and tan can be trickier to keep clean.

It’s great to use some contrast, but don’t take it too far. We suggest choosing a couple of complementing colors for the siding, trim and accents such as doors.

Based on the type of siding your home uses, here are a couple 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 putting your home on the market, it’s essential to keep your possible buyers in mind. It might be smarter to select more classic colors, including blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too vividly colored, like pink, purple or orange, might be a sticking point for possible buyers.
