Which color would you paint our front door? Help!

Lin21558230Bonnie WooleverK


I just can't decide what the perfect front door color would be for our cottage! It needs a paint job. Do I keep it white? Other colors I'm thinking off are a barn red, light brown, or even a light green. What would work best with our light blue house color? Help!

    I would paint your porch railings white to match the trim. Paint the front door black.

    What did you choose? I like a red door with navy shutters, leaving the other trim white. http://www.glitterandgoatcheese.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Glitter-and-Goat-Cheese-Front-Door.jpg

    Red or a cranberry/wine would be a great contrast. A red or cranberry/wine bench and some red flowers in the hanging baskets and some going down the steps. And how about a flower box in the upstairs window with some red flowers........Trim and steps white and black shutters. Hope you post some pics.

    A pale yellow and paint the porch railings white. Bring a little sunshine to the front door!

    I closed my eyes & pictured the color wheel. I'm with hobnailgail ^ A pale, light, maybe even buttery creamy YELLOW. NOT a bold, sunshine, sunflower... ~Creamier. I think you would love it.

    I also thought of yellow! Or something like an light orange/spice color like the pumpkins on the porch! I agree to paint the railings white, also. Since it is a door you can change your mind many times!! Good luck and show us the results!

    I like the white but would hang the wreath lower so that the window will show. It looks clean and inviting the way it is. Would also paint the porch and railings white.

    Pumpkin or a mustard golden yellow!

    Take a picture of the house and print it out. Cut out the door. Go to the paint store and put various chips behind the space. You can see how any color would look and might even choose something you hadn't thought of! Then you can come paint my door! 😊

    Hope this helps! I agree, white could be a little boring , but with this tip, you might be surprised. Happy painting!!!!
