Spring is here, and with it will come a plethora of beautiful colors. The May flowers that April showers bring display lovely shades of red, purple, yellow and blue. With the wave of new life and vibrant color that is soon-to-come, many homeowners will be thinking about Spring cleaning as a preparation for Summer. In addition to thoroughly cleaning, giving your home an external “makeover” would be the ideal activity to welcome Spring. Believe it or not, simply painting your front door can drastically change the appearance of your entire home and make it the feature of your neighborhood.
Painting your front door is perhaps the most inexpensive way to change the look and feel of your house. The colors you have to choose from are endless, but some of the most popular front door shades include:
— Yellow — This bright and sunny hue inspires feelings of happiness, warmth and joy. Yellow is the ideal shade of door paint for a home that is a drab color (such as grey). Painting your front door yellow is definitely the best way to make your home “pop” and stand out to visitors.
— Red — Warm, sultry, passionate — these are all words that are associated with the color red. Applied to a front door, red truly makes a statement. Interestingly, early American homes with red doors were thought to be exceptionally welcoming. Those drawn to Americana-style decor will likely love the look of a bright red front door.
— Green — Homeowners who are ready for a fresh start and a renewed sense of vitality might want to opt for a green door. Mint and lime are two colors that have been wildly popular lately; these shades are sure to bring a house to life and cause visitors to feel refreshed.
— Blue — Did you know that blue is one of the most stunning front door hues for brick homes? Blue also looks beautiful against natural siding. Those who are ready to quickly and inexpensively change the look of their home should consider a vibrant shade of blue for their front door.

I SUFFER FROM MCS/ MULTI CHEMICAL SENSITIVIITIES– & EVEN LOW VOC PAINTS EFFECT ME– SO NO PAINT– BUT IF I COULD — MY FRONT DOOR WOULD BE BRIGHT RED– BARN RED!!! 🙂
I like that Sonda!
When we built our home 12 years ago, we painted the front door to match the Navy blue shutters. The door still looks great. Problem is, the sun has faded the SHUTTERS to a medium blue, so now we have to paint the shutters to match the door!
Have fun with the painting. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I enjoy your blog as well at http://thedailygraff.com/
Our to do this this spring includes painting our front door. We repainted it last year but the paint and the weather resulted in a less than satisfactory look—bubbles all over it and it looks like it has acne!!! I think some sanding is in order this time around. 🙂
Sanding and a good spring time color! Thanks for your comment Beth Ann!
