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. I also thought about trying to match the door to the darkest color rock in the front stone. Thoughts??

Thanks-- I really appreciate it!

I think a dark brown or grayish brown would work, but it would be more brown on an already neutral brown house.

Our home has similar colored siding and stone. The front door is a dark maroon. I like the color it adds and it ties in to the stone. I'll see if I can rustle up a pic.

ETA: here's a photo, but it was taken late in the day here and so the door looks very dark. Maybe I can find a better one

THANK YOU for the reply! I kind of agree with having an actual color instead of more brown. I like the dark maroon-- any idea what the name was?

I think an eggplant color would be pretty.

Here are links to different color schemes for front doors. Also check out the deep red and maybe bright red

I also have similar colors on my house and I used a very dark brown almost black color. I did have a kick plate on my door - but I removed it it made it too busy. I'm happy with my door color.
