Front door colors
Hi! We built our house in 2010 and left the front door white. I've been thinking about adding a color because the front of the house seems kind of blah.
Here's a picture from when we moved in. We have since added a Japanese Maple in front of that small window on the left side and the copper roof has aged to a bronze color. The siding is Hardie pre-finished in Monterey Taupe. The door is a Therma-tru door with 3/4 light Maple Park glass.
I love the glass design and don't want to detract from it. I would paint the door, sidelights, and those vertical trim pieces between the door and sidelights all the same color. The Hardie site shows dark red as an accent color, but the house next door has tan siding and dark red shutters and door. I was thinking a bluish-green (maybe BM Yorktowne Green?) or dark brown, but I'm looking for other ideas. Do you think I should I paint it or leave it white? Can your recommend a specific color? If I leave it white, do you have any other ideas for sprucing up the front?
