What Color is Best for My Exterior Door?

Wanting to freshen up your house’s exterior? Or make it more appealing to potential homebuyers? A new front entry door is a good way to make your house more noticeable.

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

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

How Your House’s Look Influences Front Door Color

To start, you should think over your home’s style. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can impact the style for your door replacement, along with the color.

We often see standard colors—such as dark blues, greens, reds or black—coupled with a traditional-style residence. If you have a contemporary or farmhouse-style house, try experimenting with statement colors that enhance your residence’s outside.

If your siding is a darker color, having a neutral door can really look great. But you should be aware that lighter colors including white and tan can be harder to keep clean.

It’s great to use some contrast, but don’t get carried away. We advise selecting a few corresponding colors for the siding, trim and accents like doors.

Based on the type of siding you have, here are a few corresponding 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 crucial to keep your possible buyers in mind. It might be better to stick with more timeless colors, including blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too vividly colored, like pink, purple or orange, could be a sticking point for potential buyers.

At Pella of Jackson, we can help you find the ideal exterior entry door to complement your residence and improve your curb appeal. Contact us at 307-733-0535 today to begin your exterior door replacement project.
