What Color is Best for My Exterior Door?

Looking to freshen up your house’s exterior? Or make it more appealing to future homebuyers? A new front entry door is a good way to make your house stand out.

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

Once you decide on a solution, the appropriate color on your new Pella® door can make it pop. Here are our suggestions when you’re considering what color your front door should be.

How Your House’s Style Influences Front Door Color

First, you need consider your residence’s style. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can influence the style for your door replacement, as well as the color.

We usually see conventional colors—including dark blues, greens, reds or black—paired with a traditional-style residence. If you have a contemporary or farmhouse-style home, try experimenting with statement colors that complement your residence’s exterior.

If your home has darker-colored siding, using a neutral door can really look great. But keep in mind that lighter colors such as white and tan can be more difficult to keep clean.

It’s good to have some contrast, but don’t get carried away. We recommend choosing several matching colors for the siding, trim and accents including doors.

Based on the kind of siding your home uses, here are a few 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 putting your home on the market, it’s crucial to keep your potential buyers in mind. It might be better to go with more classic colors, like blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too boldly colored, such as pink, purple or orange, could be a dealbreaker for potential buyers.
