Planning an Exterior Painting Project? Have Fun with Your Door Color!
As you can see in the photos above, we recently enjoyed transforming another local home here in the Bay Area. From a drab, forgettable color to a stylish gray, the curb appeal has been drastically improved.
Another unique element of this repaint is the door color that was chosen.

Going along with the trendy gray exterior, we added a bright, eye-catching orange for the door. It’s warm, inviting, and modern too. In fact, we shared it on Houzz and received a lot of interest, feedback, and encouragement, as well as some fun ideas about how else orange could be incorporated as an exterior accent color.
So, how about your own home? Would a more unique color work for your door?
Are You Staying or Moving?
If you’re painting purely for the sake of marketability, creating extra “wow factor” and value before your home goes up for sale, a more daring door color is either a hit or a miss. Your prospective buyer might absolutely love it, but typically a more traditional route is advised.
What Colors Are Used in Your Neighborhood?
There’s nothing wrong with blazing your own trail with a more vibrant option, but the tone of the neighborhood can certainly direct you toward the best decision for your home.
What’s Your Home’s Style?
The traditional architectural lines of a stately, older home often ask for more subdued colors, while modern homes are more receptive to walking on the wilder side. Take your property’s architectural style and age into consideration, and pick something that supports the design rather than conflicts with it.
Find a Door Color That Complements Your Home’s Exterior Paint
Remember, complementary colors are those that sit on opposite sides of a color wheel. Red and green, purple and yellow, blue and orange... Even though they’re very different, these colors do, well, complement each other. This is a simple way to get door color inspiration, and set you down the right path where you can then branch off to all manner of shades, tones, and other variations.
