Does your home need a dash of personality? Do you want your home to convey a certain vibe? Are you on a budget? Do you like to play with color?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you might want to jump on the latest style trend in home exteriors – colorful front doors!
A coat of vibrant fresh paint gives an instant face-lift to any house (as well as a distraction that can conceal a multitude of sins). Whether fire-engine red, lemon yellow or an unexpected turquoise, choosing a shade that differs from the usual suspects in front door décor puts a personal stamp on your home.

A flash of color on the front door is a small, easy step to a huge transformation. Don’t worry if you are afraid of commitment; a coat of paint is much easier and less expensive to change than tiles, carpet and furniture!
The trend now is towards bright and colorful hues, instead of the traditional or muted tones. Bright blues, acid greens, rich purples and sunny yellows are having a moment.
Do you like to play it safe? Ocean blue, sage green, plum or mustard still make a major statement.
If you are looking to sell your home, a vibrant hue can attract attention. An eye-catching hue for the front door makes your house stand out from your neighbors’ homes.
Perhaps you are brightening up your home to enhance its curb appeal before you put it on the market to sell. If you are selling your home and buying a new one, you’ll need to consider home financing options.
