What Color is Best for My Entry Door?

Seeking to modernize your house’s external look? Or make it more appealing to potential homebuyers? A new front entry door is a good way to make your residence attract attention.

There are many options and colors to pick from when you’re doing door replacement in Bloomington, IN, but we’re here to help. Our Pella of Bloomington, IN design consultants are experts in helping you find just the right exterior door to match your house’s architectural style.

Once you decide on a look, the appropriate color on your new Pella® door can make it stand out. Here are our suggestions when you’re thinking over what color your front door should be.

How Your Residence’s Look Impacts Front Door Color

First, you need think over your house’s look. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can affect the style for your door replacement, along with the color.

We usually see standard colors—such as dark blues, greens, reds or black—coupled with a traditional-style home. If you have a contemporary or farmhouse-style house, try choosing statement colors that highlight your house’s outside.

If you have darker-colored siding, having a lighter door can really stand out. But it’s good to know that lighter colors like white and tan can be harder to keep clean.

It’s ideal to add some contrast, but don’t go overboard. We advise sticking with a few matching colors for the siding, trim and accents like doors.

Based on the kind of siding you use, here are a few corresponding 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 crucial to keep your possible buyers in mind. You may want to go with more standard colors, including blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too brightly colored, like pink, purple or orange, can be a sticking point for possible buyers.
