Once you choose a look, the appropriate 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 Home’s Look Impacts Front Door Color
Initially, you need think over your house’s look. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can impact the style for your door replacement, along with the color.
We usually see conventional colors—like dark blues, greens, reds or black—coupled with a traditional-style residence. If you live in a contemporary or farmhouse-style home, try choosing brighter colors that highlight your house’s style.
If you have darker-colored siding, having a light-colored door can really pop. But you should be aware that lighter colors like white and tan can be harder to keep clean.
It’s ideal to use some contrast, but don’t go over the top. We suggest choosing a couple of corresponding colors for the siding, trim and accents including doors.
Based on the kind of siding your home uses, here are a couple matching 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 essential to keep your potential buyers in mind. It might be better to select more standard colors, such as blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too vividly colored, like pink, purple or orange, could be a turnoff for possible buyers.
