What Color is Right for My Exterior Door?

Looking to update your house’s external look? Or make it more attractive to future homebuyers? A new front entry door is a good way to make your residence stand out.

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

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

How Your Residence’s Architecture Impacts Front Door Color

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

We usually see conventional colors—such as dark blues, greens, reds or black—coupled with a traditional-style house. If you live in a contemporary or farmhouse-style residence, try experimenting with brighter colors that enhance your home’s exterior.

If your home has darker-colored siding, using a lighter door can really stand out. But keep in mind that lighter colors like white and tan can be trickier to keep clean.

It’s ideal to add some contrast, but don’t go too far. We recommend sticking with several matching colors for the siding, trim and accents like doors.

Based on the kind of siding your home uses, here are a couple complementing 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 essential to keep your future buyers in mind. You may want to choose more timeless colors, such as blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too brightly colored, including pink, purple or orange, may be a sticking point for future buyers.

At Pella of Sheridan, we can help you choose the right exterior entry door to enhance your house and increase your curb appeal. Contact us at 307-673-1135 now to get started with your exterior door replacement project.
