What Color Should I Choose for My Front Door?

Wanting to freshen up your house’s outside? Or make it more appealing to potential homebuyers? A new front entry door is a fantastic way to make your home more noticeable.

There are many styles and colors to choose from when you’re working on door replacement in Casper, but we’re here to support you. Our Pella of Casper design consultants are experts in helping you select just the right exterior door to highlight your home’s architectural style.

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

How Your Residence’s Look Impacts Front Door Color

First, you need think over your home’s architecture. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can impact the style for your door replacement, as well as the color.

We often see standard colors—like dark blues, greens, reds or black—coupled with a traditional-style residence. If you own a contemporary or farmhouse-style house, try choosing bolder colors that enhance your home’s outside.

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

It’s good to add some contrast, but don’t get carried away. We suggest sticking with several complementing colors for the siding, trim and accents such as doors.

Based on the type of siding your home has, here are a couple complementing 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 listing your home, it’s important to keep your future buyers in mind. It might be better to choose more standard colors, like blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too vividly colored, such as pink, purple or orange, might be a dealbreaker for possible buyers.
