PERSONALIZE YOUR FRONT DOOR 


Painting your front door is a great way to give your home new curb appeal. It is one of the easiest and quickest makeovers, costing as little as a quart of paint. Front door colours are highly personal but should work with the undertone of your other exterior colours.

Spring is a great season to paint your door because the weather is not to hot or too cold. Remember to read your paint can for temperature guidelines but usually if temperatures are above 15 degrees you are good to go. Have fun and be bold when selecting a colour for your door, remember colours read lighter in natural light.

I painted my front door black when we first moved in our house. I love the classy look of a black front door. After a few years I wanted a pop of colour and went with an orange which I still like today. 


This colour is Earthenware by Beautitone.


Behr- Fired up T17-19

  
                     
Buttered Yam AF-230                          Bronze Tone 2166-30 


 Calypso Orange 2015-30

  
Here are a few more great colours to try if your looking for pop of colour!

Purple is not a popular colour when it comes to front doors, however on the right home, purple can look picture perfect.
