How to Choose the right color for your front door

 How to Choose the right color for your front door

 Here are a few professional tips on how to choose your next front door color!

A front door can make a big impact in the overall beauty and curb appeal of your home. It’s a main focal point of many homes as it is one of the first things a guest sees. The design of a home can help guide your choice of exterior colors that are appropriate for your home. The bright pastels that work gloriously on a Victorian might not be the best choice for a more traditional design. A more modern home can support a bold color choice and a gorgeous monotone scheme as well. That being said, rules are made to be broken! 

Choosing a casual shade can make a formal entrance less rigid and an elegant shade can add a touch of drama to an understated entrance.

It’s also important to take into account the external factors of your home. Roofing ,landscaping, and other various materials such as wood or brick can help guide the final color choice for a front door. Coordinating other elements such as shutters and trim can also lend to creating a complementary color scheme.

Homeowners usually change the color of their front door every seven years. When choosing a new color, take advantage of the change to create the impact you desire. A light or vibrant hue brings a fresh energy to a home and a darker, more subdued color can give a sense of peace and tranquility. Choosing a color such as a daring yellow or a cheerful coral can look beautiful in the summer next to a blooming garden and add a dose of joy during the winter months. A deep purple is unexpected but will deliver a distinguished and sophisticated look. 

The front door is a blank canvas that can be used to reflect personality, add flattering style to your home and create a focal point that adds to the curb appeal of your home.

It was fun working with Chris and his crew. I’ve never had a contracted job go so smoothly from start to finish. The office was responsive to my needs, Corey was patient and helpful while I made color choices, and Chris made sure I was happy with the crew’s work every step of the way. Gabriel does amazing work as well. Very much a perfectionist like Chris. I don’t have a bad thing to say. The job is absolutely stunning and I’ve had so many neighbors tell me it’s beautiful. I’m happy to put one of your signs in my front yard if you’d like so people know as they drive by who did the work. Thank you Brooks Painting. I will be recommending you to anybody who asks.

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.

The crew is as neat and reliable as the actual painting job and paint used. No boom boxes!! Cordial staff spoke English. The crew got along with each other and worked as a team. The actual finish is / was beautiful. We would like to use Brooks again!

What a difference!! We hired Brooks Painting to do both an interior refresh painting and a completely new exterior color. Everything was handled professionally and as promised. The team, from estimator to office to painters on site, was responsive, friendly and skilled. Brooks Painting is the most reliable contractor we have ever hired. Thank you Jeremy, Dan, Israel, and Kristen.

Eric and his crew were on time every day and did a very thorough job. I was thrilled that they were willing to paint my outdoor light fixtures which were getting rusty. I was particularly impressed how much time they spent going over their work at the end to catch spots that were missed. I’ll be using them again for interior painting.

Brooks Painting has be in business a long time in our area. As a native resident we have seen and heard of their professional & quality painting. In looking for bids on painting our house Brooks was referred numerous times. When Jeremy came out to meet us we were sold on using their services and looked no further. Every aspect of this company was very upfront, professional and made us feel safe, valued and comfortable hiring them. The office staff kept good communication with us. The color matching was perfect. The crew showed up on time, were respectful and did a great job from prep to the final end of the project. The warranty offered was a plus and the liability coverage gave us peace of mind also. The price was well worth all that was included in the project so we had little to do but move our stuff away from the house. Thank you Brooks painting, crew and staff for making our home new again :)
