When Should You Consider Revitalizing Your Deck?July 12, 2018
When many people are improving the curb appeal of their home by updating their siding, planting new flowers, and even pressure washing their deck or sidewalk, it’s easy for the front door to be neglected. This is a shame, as it is one of the first things that people notice when they come to your home and can have a huge impact on not only the appearance of your home but also the way people perceive your property. If you are tired of the old color of your door and are ready to branch out to something more exciting then you’re ready to find a new color that not only works with the style of your entryway but also the appearance of your home.
If you have neutral siding at your home and aren’t afraid of a bright pop of color then a splash of lime green can really make your front door stand out. You want to make sure that it isn’t going to compete or clash with the color of your home, but if it is the main focal point then you are sure to love the way it draws the eye. This is a particularly great idea if you have a lot of glass in your front door, as the clear glass will help to prevent this color from overwhelming the home.
Again perfect fit for a home with neutral siding, this will draw on the colors of a brick stoop or deck, if you have one. While fire-engine red may be played out as the best red for a front door, this darker red has brown undertones and is a bit moodier, making it stand out from the home without drawing too much attention. It’s still a little formal, but less so than black, which can appear dominating and a little intimidating for a lot of people.
A fresh Caribbean blue or even a robin’s egg blue will stand out from neutral siding and allow you to accessorize the color with yellow flowers or bright green foliage. Look for a blue that is dark enough to easily be seen from the street but isn’t so dark that it makes the front door disappear.
While bright yellow was really popular a few years ago, if you have bright siding and don’t want your front door to compete with the color then look for a softer lemony yellow hue to paint your front door. This color will be able to hold its own and attract attention but won’t compete or clash with its surroundings, which can create an unattractive impression that is difficult to look at for a long time.
Don’t go too dark if your siding is dark, but instead look for a red that has touches of dark pink in it. This color can stand up to teal, navy, dark brown, and even a splash of black. It’s got enough saturation for the color to appear deep and true and to be visible from the road.
If you’re tired of the appearance and color of your front door and are ready for something new then it’s time to skip the same old browns, bright yellows, and forest greens. New paint can make your front door really pop again.
