Front door color

kburdick29December 2, 2012

Hello! I just discovered this website-- awesome:) Wish I would have found this earlier in our building process!

I am trying to decide on a front door color. The house is very neutral (as you can see--but the trim around the garage will be white as well), so I know I want a darker colored door. One person recommended doing the same darker brown color of the shakes over the garage. Another said to do a darker brown, almost black, like SW Brown Fox. Thoughts??

Thanks:)

I'd go with the deepest rusty burnt orange tone that is in your brick...make the door stand out with its depth of color against the taupe.

Id love to see a rich British Racing Green on your door. Glossy paint. The neighbors would envy it.

Suggest you go to the Sherwin Williams website, select the 'Visualizer'. I recommend the persimmon color that is displayed on the visualizer main page. Better yet, you can download a picture of your house and try that very color on your front door. You can continue to try colors until you find what you want. I always prefer an eye-poping color for a front door. Good Luck!!

Another vote for a vibrant color that accents the stone feature.
