Taking your home’s curb appeal to the next level depends on a number of factors. Landscaping features such as trees and lawns help, as do good-looking fences. After all, there’s a reason why the white picket fence is still considered iconic, even after all these years. One quick and easy way to improve the curb appeal associated with your custom home is to pick the right color for the front door. Join us as we find out how!
The Traditional Color Palette
Let’s start by talking about the most conventional design choice for your front door. If you have a traditional-looking home, then it’s time to play up that aspect. Choose deep blues, dove grays, and a variety of other neutral colors. This gives your home the pleasant effect of being timeless no matter what changes and tastes change as the decades pass. Plus, neutral colors on front doors make for a fantastic complement to shutters, windows, landscaping features, and exterior lighting – all of which can change.
Alternatively, you could go in the opposite direction and choose bolder colors. Bring your style into the mix. What are some elements of your personality that you enjoy showing off? For instance, are you creative and extroverted? Brighter colors can help reflect that side of you. Red, orange, and yellow – even in their darker shades – can help you get in the mood to welcome fall.
Perhaps you are going for something a bit more understated. We completely understand! Smaller custom homes can benefit from white front doors. Using the same color scheme for the trim and siding can also make your curb appeal more impressive. Moreover, it’s a fabulous way to make your home seem larger!
Reflect the Architecture
Most homeowners probably don’t spend much time thinking about the architectural style of their home. They just want something that looks suitably beautiful. This concern mainly comes from designs that might be incompatible with one another – such as a modern-looking door on a historic-looking home.
Borrow from Nature
One final idea is to borrow the look of your home’s entryway from nature itself. Front doors are a crucial part of making curb appeal more appealing. Some of the color choices that can help you do that include shades of green, blue, and brown.
