What Color Should I Select for My Exterior Door?

Seeking to update your home’s external look? Or make it more favorable to possible homebuyers? A new front entry door is a fantastic way to make your home more noticeable.

There are a lot of styles and colors to select from when you’re working on door replacement in Vancouver, but we’re available to support you. Our Pella of Vancouver design consultants are experts in helping you choose just the right exterior door to highlight 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 Residence’s Architecture Impacts Front Door Color

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

We often see standard colors—including dark blues, greens, reds or black—coupled with a traditional-style residence. 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 trickier to keep clean.

It’s good to add some contrast, but don’t go overboard. We recommend choosing a few corresponding colors for the siding, trim and accents including doors.

Based on the color of siding you have, here are a couple 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 putting your home on the market, it’s crucial to keep your possible 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 dealbreaker for future buyers.
