Colors convey clues, what does your favorite hue say about you? Your front door is the first thing that people see when they look at your home. Shouldn’t it say something about you? Whether you’re going for “big and bold” or “subtle and sophisticated,” there’s a color out there that will suit your needs.
Our pre-painting pondering begs just a few questions to consider:
- With your current color scheme, does your selection compliment your existing exterior?
- Will it stick out too much with holiday decor?
- Does everyone in the family enjoy coming in the door? Just remember, it’s very likely that it’s more than just YOU in your home.
These are all important questions to ask before you whip out your rollers. As you can see, there’s more to choosing a front door color than simply picking one from a batch of paint samples. Are you wondering which color conveys the right message for you?
