For a quick makeover, consider painting your front door a fresh, new color. Usually, you can paint your door in under 30 minutes so it’s an easy and quick way to make a bold first impression. As of last year, our front door is yellow (Martha Stewart Cornbread) and I love it. It’s different, yet complements the traditional style of the house. Before going with your favorite color, of say hot pink, take a moment to consider the style of your house, the style of the neighborhood, and the colors already engaged. There’s bound to be a way to personalize your home, boost curb appeal, and not look out of place.
One of my friends had a basic black front door that she recently decided to change.
She took inspiration from one of her plant pots and painted the door a fresh coat of bright green. It works well because it coordinates with the abundant greenery in the yard.
If you’re going to paint your front door, choose a durable, exterior finish, such as gloss, semi-gloss, or satin (gloss having the highest sheen). If your front door sees a lot of sun, you may also want to consider using porch floor enamel paint since it is resistant to fading.
So, what color is YOUR front door?
