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??

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.
