The entry is arguably one of the most important places in your home to really nail it when it comes to color choices. After all, you only get one chance to make a first impression, and it starts with your front door! Choosing a color for your front door can be intimidating, but not to worry; these door color selection tips from Modern Masters will help you choose a finish that creates a beautiful focal point for your home.
Style– The architectural style of your home should be a major factor in your color choice. Most home styles have a color palette that works best with them; for instance, Mediterranean homes often feature earthy, sun-baked color palettes of ochre, burnt umber, terracotta, and rich, dark wood tones. Classic bungalow style also draws color inspiration from nature, but usually features cooler hues like pale gray, greige, charcoal, sage green, and taupe. Contemporary architectural styles can look fantastic with bright, bold door colors.
Coordination– In addition to the architectural character of your home, it’s also important to consider existing elements that will interact with the door color, like the color of bricks, roof material, trim, siding, shutters, and even the surrounding landscaping and hardscaping (driveway, patio, retaining walls, etc.).
