This was a pretty bright white, but unfortunately I don't have the specific color.

Is it odd to have the entry to a bathroom on a wall that faces the back door entry to a house. We are thinking of moving the bathroom entry due to a kitchen remodel. there is a small open entry area into the house attached to the kitchen but the bathroom door would be across the entrance on the facing wall. I am concerned it would be an issue but I am not sure.

I've always been of the opinion that the door to a bathroom or powder room shouldn't be visible from any entry into the house. It's just never the view one wants from an exterior doorway. Sometimes it's a tough nut to crack but just keep noodling some sketches until you do.

You didn't say what room would be the alternate for the bathroom door to open into. I the back entry is just the best place for the bathroom, be sure to put bomber hinges (spring hinge) on the door so it automatically pulls itself together. That way you and others won't see inside the bathroom if someone doesn't think to close the door.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sookie should probably have a red front door. Vampires have to have permission from humans to come inside, and this will set out a subtle signal that she's interested.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Planning: How to Choose a Front Door
It's amazing the difference the front door can make in the appearance of a home's facade. A splash of red-orange on the exterior door adds a vibrant touch to a traditional exterior.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to The Colonial, America's Home Style
Not quite symmetrical, with simple "less is more" detailing, here is a contemporary interpretation of colonial design, with a welcoming red front door.
Becky Harris added this to Fresh Start: Paint the Front Door
A red door lets visitors know they are in for a treat when they step inside this home.

3. Power wash paths and siding. Giving your home's exterior and paved areas a power wash can be nearly as dramatic as repainting, for a much lower cost. Rent a machine from your local hardware store if you don't have one.4. Maintain green lawns. Sad, neglected lawns are a major turnoff to potential buyers. Maintaining a healthy lawn from the beginning with regular care is the least expensive route, though laying new sod can be worth the dramatic improvement in curb appeal if you don't have time to start from seed.
Is the front door the right color? If your front facade feels ho-hum, a new front door color can rev it up. Not sure which color will suit your home? We have a number of helpful ideabooks featuring a range of front door color choices and how to pick them; Vanessa Brunner has conveniently put them together in one place for you.

Fun door colors can also give a traditional exterior a bit of modern zing, for just the cost of a quart of paint.Paint picks: 5 Bright Palettes for Front Doors
If you don’t have such a classically proportioned home, adding a portico and perhaps modifying some adjacent windows, as in this example, can give a sense of depth to an otherwise flat facade. The red door once again helps to establish that point of destination and provides one more layer of depth.
