6 Best Front Door Colors to Boost Your Curb Appeal

Your front door is the gateway to your home, and the color you choose can make a profound impact on its overall appeal. Whether you're drawn to the radiant optimism of yellow, the timeless elegance of red, the tranquil charm of teal, or any other hue that resonates with your style, enhancing your home's curb appeal is a rewarding endeavor.

Here are 6 popular front door colors that are a perfect way to boost your curb appeal and refresh an outdated exterior. 

Radiant Yellow

Yellow embodies the spirit of optimism and extroverted personalities, evoking thoughts of brightness and cheerfulness, much like a sunny day. Its innate sense of joyfulness brings forth a feeling of freshness, friendliness, and carefreeness. This quality is especially inviting when the sky is overcast. A front door adorned in yellow radiates warmth and greatly enhances your home's curb appeal.

Pro Tip: Embrace happiness with Behr's Hawaiian Pineapple, and watch your entryway come alive with a vibrant, welcoming aura.

Bold Red Statement

The vibrant hue of red stands as a timeless and universally favored choice for front doors, symbolizing both hospitality and security throughout history. Keep in mind that to maintain its striking allure, this door may require repainting every year or two, particularly if it's subjected to direct sunlight.

Pro Tip: Opting for a high-gloss, true red shade like Behr's Flirt Alert in semi-gloss amplifies the impact, making neutrals and traditional design elements truly stand out.

Vivid Blue Elegance

While navy is a dependable choice, if you're aiming to create a memorable impression, explore the spectrum of bolder blue shades: indigo, cobalt, turquoise, or the distinctive ultramarine reminiscent of French artist Yves Klein. Universally appealing, blue offers both invigorating and soothing qualities. Much like a versatile pair of jeans, it effortlessly complements any style.

Prop Tip: Elevate your entrance with the sophistication of Behr's Dark Cobalt and leave a lasting mark of elegance.

Enchanting Green

From forest and hunter to British racing and emerald, deep greens are currently en vogue. While these darker shades have graced traditional interiors for over two centuries, they are now making their mark on unconventional home design palettes as well. Rest assured, choosing a rich green hue will remain stylish long after the trends have evolved.

Prop Tip: Experience a touch of countryside charm within the city by embracing Hidden Forest from Behr, and watch your home exude timeless allure.

Timelessly Chic Black

Black is perpetually in vogue. Its elegance and boldness serve as an ideal complement to a brighter exterior color, especially when combined with black shutters. In a similar vein, it possesses the ability to function as a tuxedo, elevating neutral materials on your home's exterior to a new level of sophistication. According to Feng Shui principles, black is associated with providing a protective shield, making it an excellent choice to instill a sense of safety and security within your sanctuary.

Of course, durability is key when it comes to outdoor paint. Be sure to select the perfect outdoor paint that can withstand the elements.

Pro Tips: For a classic touch, consider Behr's Totally Black.

Tranquil Teal

For those in search of a farmhouse or a coastal vibe, the choice of a contemporary teal paint color for your front door can't be beaten! Teal, born from the harmonious fusion of blue and green, offers a modern freshness.

It's worth noting that teals come in a range of variations, with some leaning more towards the blue spectrum and others embracing the verdant side. Contemporary teals, in particular, often incorporate subtle hints of gray, which lends them a balanced and less vibrant appearance.

Pro Tips: With cooler tones of green and grey, Behr’s Bali Bliss is a more subtle teal. For a darker version, opt for Thai Teal.
