Front door - curb appeal ideas
July 3, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We want to paint/ make over our front door and shutters. For the shutters we were going to paint them dark grey, any suggestions for front door colours?
Should we paint the door dark grey? Or go with distressed wood planks?

a few comments....garage door should be same colour as body of house so it does not stand out. Front door is the most important as it is entry to your home. It should be a unique colour which will stand out & be welcoming. It is not painted the same colour as body of house or trim.
If body of your house is gray, a red door would pop!! as would a lovely blue door. Got to Idea books on colours for front doors, there is often a discussion about choosing colour, including Feng Shui elements.

Red door or warm blue door would look great. If you could get two doors which BOTH have glass 1/2 or 2/3 glass it would be nice. I don't care for the look of one solid door next to one with glass.

Agree with Curtis. I should have mentioned it myself.

I would paint the vertical siding and the garage door a dark gray. Go black on the shutters and either yellow or red on the door. I would paint the porch decking with a light gray deck paint and the roof of the porch a light blue. Move the mailbox to the side and get a new door if it is in your budget.
