Want to add new life to your home’s entryway? A beautiful new front door can seriously elevate curb appeal, providing a focal point that’s fantastic for self-expression. And why not? The front door is the first thing people see when they look at your home, so shouldn’t it say something about you, too?
Whether you’re a fan of big and bold or subtle and sophisticated, here’s what’s trending in door colors this year.
If there’s an easier way to change your home’s appearance with one small touch, we don’t know it. A new front door can even boost the value of your home. Color trends are always changing, but these hues remain consistently popular year after year.
Benjamin Moore’s 2021 color of the year is soothing Aegean Teal. Blue is a balanced and deeply calming color that instantly creates visual interest. Zen Windows’ Therma-Tru line offers two gorgeous blues, Royal Marine and Moonless Night. ProVia choices include Enzian Blue and Geneva Blue, which is a dead ringer for Aegean Teal. Robin Egg, Deep Blue, and Blueberry are three of the line’s trending custom color options.
For years, red was a favorite color for front doors, and now it’s back. From Cabernet to Mountain Berry, red entry doors are rich, bold, and full of life. For homeowners who love woodgrains, stain options like Redwood and Mulberry add a warm look with just the right touch of red. Updates to the traditional red door include painting the surrounding trim classic white, gray, or black to make the door even more dramatic.
Neutrals aren’t just white and tan, though they’re always a great choice. Olive green, especially when used against red brick, is a soothing look that complements your home’s front yard greenery. Warm neutral wood stains go nicely with any front porch decor. One of the most on-trend neutrals this year is gray. Available in various tints and depths, it might not pack the punch of other, more colorful hues, but it has a quiet strength that can lend just the right amount of modernity to your home. ProVia’s Sterling Gray is a soothing shade of gray that adds a lovely touch of timeless elegance.
If you have a lighter-colored house, a bolder front door makes an impressive statement. Dark wood stains like Raven, Dark Maple, Espresso, and Coffee Bean are a classy — and classic — addition to any home, particularly when paired with brass hardware. Black is still a no-fail choice. It’s most striking paired with white, but it also goes well with stone, brick, and shingles. Most designers agree a front door painted in a glossy black complemented with white trim will likely never go out of style.
