Suggestions for front door color

+2
Answered
Our home is yellow vinyl siding, dark green shingle roof, brown/red brick front porch & steps with white railing & posts. The front door is currently an ugly dark brown (and I mean ugly!). It has a 6 pane window - we want to replace the door some day but right now paint will do. Suggestions for door color??

    Hi Cindy, this is a picture of my house I sold a couple of years ago, the door was actually a dark forest green with the terra cotta screen door...which brought the yellow, green and red all together I thought. :) You could always paint the door a terra cotta though.....I almost did that. I've inlcuded a pic of a room done in rookwood terra cotta (SW Paint). Good luck!

      @Rebecca Before I saw your response, I was looking at a paint chip sample and terra cotta popped. My powder room is terra cotta & I love it so I think I'm going with terra cotta -- will look great with some potted plants on the front porch using terra cotta planters. So excited now to get it painted in the spring.

    you might want to try a dark green to match the roof. or if possible a deep purple the same color value as the roof. Just a thought, sometimes a pop a color is refreshing.

  • A primary color would work well: white, red, yellow, blue.... perhaps!

    Hi Cindy... glad to hear you liked the thought of terra cotta too..... ought to be very nice! Posts pics if you can once you get it done. Would love to see it. :)
