Spring is just around the corner and I can’t help but think about outdoor projects. There’s something about getting outside after being cooped up all winter and sprucing things up, isn’t there?
One of the outdoor decorating topics I get asked so many questions about is front door paint colors. Are red doors still in? Should I paint my door the same color as my trim? Is your dark blue-grey door high maintenance? All great questions that really can’t be answered with a simple yes or no.
Awhile ago, I helped Nicole pick a front door paint color and offered suggestions for adding more curb appeal to her home. If you’re contemplating a new door color, I suggest heading over to that post as well for a list of important things to consider before making your final selection.
In my opinion, front door paint colors are highly personal. Sure, the undertone needs to work with the other exterior colors of the home first and foremost, but there really are so many different options that will work for one particular home. With that being said, I’ve rounded up some beautiful front door inspiration pictures, as well as some specific paint colors (with all the details) to help you narrow down your choice.
Front Door Paint Colors
Light Blue & Aqua
Green & Chartreuse
This soft green front door spotted on Better Homes & Gardens pairs nicely with the white siding and black shutters.
For a little more punch, I’d go with a bright green door like this one found on This Old House.
Don’t forget about painting the interior of the door. A bright pop can waken up your entryway!
For something a little more subdued, this butter yellow door is a nice option.
Probably my favorite in the bunch is this red dutch door. Someday I’ll have my own!

Did one particular front door color stand out in the bunch?
I could easily live with any of these depending on the setting of the house.
If you’re still asking yourself, “What color should I paint my front door?” I’ve narrowed down a few of my favorites that coincide with many of the inspiration pictures above.

Tell me, what color is your front door painted? Thinking about making a change or do you love it?
I’m still enjoying our door, but some of these gorgeous options have me thinking! (And to answer the question from the top: I simply wipe the dust off our door every few weeks in the summer and it’s good to go.)
