What Color Should I Choose for My Exterior Door?

Looking to update your home’s external look? Or make it more appealing to future homebuyers? A new front entry door is a good way to make your home attract attention.

There are a lot of styles and colors to pick from when you’re working on door replacement in Vancouver, but we’re available to assist you. Our Pella of Vancouver design consultants are experts in helping you select just the right exterior door to match your residence’s architectural style.

Once you choose a look, the ideal color on your new Pella® door can make it pop. Here are our recommendations when you’re thinking over what color your front door should be.

How Your House’s Look Affects Front Door Color

First, you should consider your residence’s look. Is it traditional, contemporary or farmhouse? This can influence the style for your door replacement, as well as the color.

We usually see standard colors—such as dark blues, greens, reds or black—coupled with a traditional-style house. If you live in a contemporary or farmhouse-style house, try experimenting with brighter colors that highlight your home’s style.

If your siding is a darker color, adding a lighter door can really look great. But you should be aware that lighter colors like white and tan can be harder to keep clean.

It’s good to use some contrast, but don’t get carried away. We recommend choosing a few corresponding colors for the siding, trim and accents such as doors.

Based on the color of siding your home has, here are several complementing front door colors:

  • Brick exterior—dark blue or navy
  • Gray siding—dark blue, navy or red
  • Green, white or tan siding—red
  • Light blue or black siding—dark blue or navy

If you’re listing your home, it’s crucial to keep your future buyers in mind. It might be smarter to select more classic colors, including blue, brown, green, red or white. Doors that are too brightly colored, like pink, purple or orange, might be a sticking point for possible buyers.
