Give your front entrance a makeover with these paint ideas from Benjamin Moore and Blain’s Farm & Fleet.
Your front door means you’re home. It welcomes guests and adds curb appeal to your house. While we usually focus on color with the interior of our home, the outside can also make a statement – especially the front entrance and door. With these paint ideas and tips from Benjamin Moore, you can truly make a lasting first impression.
Most home exteriors are a neutral color or material. With a colorful front door, you can make your front entrance really pop. Use a statement color to complement the landscaping and architectural features of your home. That small dose of color can uplift the facade of your home and draw the eye to a welcoming front door.
Keep it Cool
Cool colors like green, gray and blue can stand out when paired with your home’s warm undertones. Look for saturated colors that will pop from the landscaping and architecture.
Give a Warm Welcome
If you’re looking for a warm, inviting color, you can’t go wrong with red, yellow or orange. These colors are exuberant and naturally warm. Bright and vivid accent colors are a strong design statement but mix well with neutral shades on the exterior of your home.
Make Home Harmony
If you’re not sure what color to paint your front door, take inspiration from inside your house. What colors will your front door open up to? Pull strong accent colors from your entryway or whatever space is behind your front door. That way you’ll have color continuity throughout your home. You can also choose a more saturated shade of a primary interior color.
