10 Beautiful Front Door Colors That Will Welcome You Home

When you get home at the end of the day, nothing says “welcome” like the perfect front door paint color. Even better, painting your front door is the perfect final touch for an exterior paint job.  So get inspired by these upgrades you can make to your exterior.


A sunny yellow paint color boosts your spirits — and adds life to a variety of exterior paint colors, too. Pair this egg-yolk yellow with exterior colors in gray, light green, beige, greige or white. Then you and your house will have a reason to smile.

Purple may not be the first color you think of when your mind goes to front doors. But when the right shade and paired with white, this jaunty hue adds both whimsy and polish.

There’s an argument to be made for the burnt orange door: familiar, warm, and utterly welcoming.

Try a rich, bold, mid-tone blue for bungalows, craftsman-style homes, and cottages. While these homes are historically associated with earth tones like brown and green, their strong lines and deep porches can stand up to cobalt’s zing.

There’s a meme that goes, “You can’t please everyone; you’re not an avocado.” So what happens when you paint your front door avocado green? We’re betting you’ll be the gathering place of the neighborhood.

When you think deep, elegant gray, you probably think offices, dining rooms, or shutters. But this classic, popular color also lends its tasteful, sophisticated appeal to front doors.

Pair lighter exterior paint colors — cream, pale yellow, light tan — with equally light-toned front door paint. A good match for these hues? Sky blue. Its pastel tone won’t overpower and gives an otherwise ordinary paint color a unique sense of style.

Got a traditional brick home? Paint the front door black. This refined tone will give your home instant curb appeal — plus an attractive, stately look.

Farmhouses and cottages call for something colorful and fun. And what’s more fun than pink? This rich, carnation hue pops against white, pale yellow or green. Talk about a “welcome home” color!

Paint a drab, dated front door peppermint green. Add a brass kick plate and knocker, and you have a memorable, lasting impression of your home’s entryway.
