Choosing front door color

tinker1121May 14, 2012

Needing advice on what color for a steel front door of a townhouse. Must we consider the color scheme of the interior for when the door is open?

Exterior is beige siding with burgundy shutters.

Interior will be painted Manchester tan, there is dark brown wall to wall carpet and color scheme of a large red sectional sofa with cream area rug and black tables, tv stand and drapes a cream background with lightly stenciled black damask pattern.

Please suggest colors to paint the steel front door which now is the same color as the vinyl siding. (a washing out beige). Something unique would be great.

As always, the advice from this forum and invaluble and thanks to everyone who posts here!

No, you don't need to consider the inside of the house, IMO. The exterior is what it's all about.

Depending on the beige, Burgundy, Beige and Ivory are a lovely combination.
Beige, burgundy and gold can be nice too.

A deep mossy, olive green would be lovely on the door.

Other choices would be a rich navy or a warm darker grey.
