What Color Should My Front Door Be?

Seeking to modernize your residence’s outside? Or make it more favorable to potential homebuyers? A new front entry door is a good way to make your home attract attention.

There are a lot of options and colors to select from when you’re beginning door replacement in Kelowna, but we’re here to support you. Our Pella of Kelowna design consultants are experts in helping you choose just the right exterior door to fit your home’s architectural style.

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

How Your House’s Style Influences Front Door Color

Initially, you need think over your residence’s look. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can impact the style for your door replacement, along with the color.

We often see conventional colors—like dark blues, greens, reds or black—coupled with a traditional-style house. If you own a contemporary or farmhouse-style home, try experimenting with statement colors that enhance your house’s exterior.

If your home has darker-colored siding, adding a light-colored door can really stand out. But it’s good to know that lighter colors such as white and tan can be trickier to keep clean.

It’s great to use some contrast, but don’t go over the top. We recommend choosing a couple of complementing colors for the siding, trim and accents including doors.

Based on the color of siding your home uses, here are a few matching 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 selling your home, it’s important to keep your future buyers in mind. You may want to choose more classic colors, including blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too brightly colored, like pink, purple or orange, could be a sticking point for future buyers.
