6 Most Popular Colors To Paint a Front Door
Update March 29, 2020
Painting your front door is an inexpensive but VERY effective way to increase your curb appeal and add value to your home. Boring neutral colored front doors like taupe, brown or white makes your house look blah and just blend in to every other house on the street. If you’re looking to add curb appeal, the best way to get noticed is to make your front door pop in a way that enhances the brick, stone or vinyl color of your house. It needs to pop!
What are the most popular paint colors?
Blue is fast becoming the go to color for front doors beating the popular red color choice in some regions. Aqua, peacock and mid-blue are currently the more popular shades. However the regurance of navy blue is quickly becoming a favorite, especially in colder regions where navy looks appropriate in snow whereas an aqua door looks like it belongs down south where there is no snow. In no particular order are trending colors of blue for a front door.
For years, red as be the favorite color choice for front doors. It just pops the front exterior when done right. Trending in red front doors is to have the surrounding trim classical white or to paint the trim black or gray to make the door even more dramatic.
Red doors with black or gray trim are making a powerful statement!
Red/orange bricks do well with a shade of red, a deep orange or commonly known as rust, or a shade of blue works well also with this color of brick.
Black makes a dramatic statement and stands the test of time. If you’re not sure about blue or red, or are afraid you might get tired of it, black can make a wonderful front door statement.
Home owners that don’t like the stark black can choose a deep gray which is still makes quite a statement.
Green hasn’t traditionally been a go-to color for front doors but they are starting to come on the horizon as another popular color choice and can make a powerful statement too.

Yellow is definitely more popular in some parts of the country than others but it can certainly be a show stopper like red, blue or black.

—Welcome! I’m Debi Collinson. Designer. Stager. Real Estate Investor. In 2006, at the request of a realtor, I staged my very first home. Staging houses was just starting to become popular. I watched every staging show on HGTV that I could find. I was very nervous staging my first house, but the sellers liked their newly redesigned home so much that they turned down an offer for full asking price. I went back to design school and have never looked back. Since 2006, I have been staging & designing spaces to make them look like they belong in a magazine page, and buying “fixer uppers” to fix up & either sell for a healthy profit or to rent them out.
