3Rs Construction on the Personality of an Exterior Painted Door
What does the paint color of your front door say about you?
Color sets a mood inside your home and can do the same on the exterior. A splash of color at your front entry definitely says you're not boring, but what else does it say!
So you've made the big decision to paint the door but you can't decide what paint color to choose. Maybe this simple color list will help:
RED - You are strong, welcoming, and energetic! You stand out and make a grand first impression. Visitors and friends know they are welcome and safe with you.
YELLOW - You are happy, warm, and uplifting. You bring cheer to everyone you meet. Yellow says you are an extrovert, and everyone is invited.
BLUE - You like to play it cool and calm. You want to provide a feeling of relaxation in every area of your life. You value prosperity and inner peace.
GREEN - You are fresh and love the outdoors. Your green door says, "Welcome to my garden." You value health, your family, and prosperity is important to you.
PURPLE - You are lovable, enjoy life, and live boldly. People may see and treat you like royalty. You bring glamour and hospitality to your friends and believe everyone you meet is important.
ORANGE - There's never a dull moment with you. You are a risk taker, and your life is full of excitement, enthusiasm, and energy.
If you've made the big decision to paint your front door, Keep in mind your personal preferences and what you may be saying to others about your personality.
If none of those colors seem like a good fit for you, don't feel bad. Neutrals such as white, grey, black, tan, or finished natural wood can also be beautiful, especially if your house or trim color is bolder. In addition, you can add color to the exterior of your home through other items such as pots of flowers, deck furniture, and furniture cushions.
A painted exterior door seems to always look best on a house that's a subdued color. It really gives your front entry a welcoming focal point and adds to the curb appeal. Consider the door style, if it has windows or leaded glass, and the material it is made of when making your final decision.
