Front doors are ready to make a color splash next year. Every front door look from bright jewel tones to rich earth tones, to re-invented classic neutrals, receives a bit of a twist in the latest color trends. This is a time for rich statement colors, fresh door handles designs, and new metal tones. And don’t forget to add a bit of personality. This is the moment to order that oversized lion head door knocker, or to give those oversized art deco house numbers a whirl. Bold is everything in the newest front door looks.
Homeowners are paying a lot of extra attention to their entranceways these days, whether they’re installing new doorbells with cameras built-in, or moving to keyless entry doorknobs. It’s not surprising that they’re thinking about updated front door looks while they’re already making minor changes. While a quick change in front door color is an easy way to give your home a bit of a facelift, always check with your local statutes or home owner’s association guidelines before you try anything too avant-garde. Even if you have to work within certain strict parameters, there are lots of new updates on old and tired classics that should work to make your home stand out from the rest of the crowd on your street.
1 – Baby Pink
Yes, you really are seeing a Baby Pink front door. Several shades of pink are making a mark on front doors these days, and this is one of our favorite looks. Like any pastel shade, the end result is all about how you showcase your unusual color choice. In this case, the pink plays perfectly against the white house and door surround.
2 – Sage Green
Sage Green is resurging as a front door choice, especially in a matte look like this. This is a color that adds a lot of personality to the front of your home while still complying with most of the strictest earth-tones requirements your home owner’s association can throw your way. It gives the front of your home a thoughtful flavor and always looks inviting too. We love it paired with the black trim on the windows and front porch.
3 – Egg Yolk
We’ll take this one sunny side up! This deep yellow tone will set your home apart from the rest. With a charcoal housepaint color and white trim, this rich yellow door is right on-trend. The best part is, this is a yellow tone that works with a wide range of house and trim colors from whites and pastels to dark blues, browns, grays, and even blacks.
4 – Scarlet
We love this update on a classic red door. This bright red pain color is especially tasteful in this matte look. Red works well with any home color it can contrast with, whether that’s a dark color like we see here or a bright white or pale gray, but it can also turn into an unexpected stunner when paired with unusual house shades like light greens or blues or even yellow.
5 – Robin’s Egg Blue
Pastels are popping up on front doors everywhere, and one of our favorite shades is this Robin’s Egg Blue. It’s fresh, it’s inviting, and it’s cute as can be! This sweet color will definitely be a stand-out in your neighborhood, giving the front of your home a sense of whimsy the neighbors will all envy!
6 – Lavender
Lavender is a gorgeous front door color that is making waves of late. This look says the owner of a home knows exactly who they are and what they like! This surprisingly versatile front door shade pairs well with many shades of brick and stone, and can comfortably co-exist with house paint colors from earth tones to darker greens, blues, and reds. It can work well with brighter colors too, like yellows and oranges.
7 – Brick Red
This very grown-up red front door gives your home’s exterior a sophisticated, bold look that is sure to turn heads. Keep things understated with dark matte metals like the matte black shown here, or brighten things up with silver or brass. Brick Red works with a wide variety of siding colors and is a good way to take your front door in a bold red direction in a way that your home owner’s association will likely happily approve.
8 – Smoke Gray
Gray has become a staple of interior home design over the past decade, and now it’s making a splash on exterior home design as well. This earthy Smoke Gray tone is a sophisticated, simple color that makes a much bigger impression than one might assume. It is a light tone, but also very grounded with hidden depths. It goes very well with almost any tone of house paint or color of brick or stone, yet it isn’t a front door color that is overused by any means. The best part is, it will likely pass muster with even the strictest HOA or town statute.
9 – Pumpkin
If you’re looking for a front door color to remind you of sugar and spice and everything nice, Pumpkin may be just the color you’re looking for. This intense, rich color will not only brighten — but warm — your front porch. It works in all seasons, too, from spring to summer to autumn to winter. It can live harmoniously with several shades of siding and housepaint from whites and greys to earth tones, and even some greens and blues.
10 – Coral
Talk about a showstopper! This lively shade will stand out even in the most colorful neighborhood. Part pink and part orange, Coral is all ‘wow’ as a statement front door color. We love the way it is fearlessly paired with a baby blue here for maximum effect. This tone works well with almost any shade of metal for doorknobs and works with a surprising number of house paint colors as well. Of course it works with whites and grays, but it works better with most earth tones than you might think — and with yellow, blue, or green it can be a true stunner!
11 – Greige
What’s that? Never heard of greige? You must have been living under a rock over the past couple decades of home decor trends! Greige is a little bit gray, a little bit beige, but one hundred percent perfect in a lot of home decor applications. It works as a neutral, but an upscale one, and on your front door it can be a real winner.
12 – Canary Yellow
Looking to add a little sunshine to your front stoop? How about a Canary Yellow front door? We love, this cheery yellow shade. It’s bright, but a little understated. It says it knows who it is, and it likes to have fun, but it can be all business when it needs to be. It works well with any shade of metal, even brass, and it goes well with most shades of house paint as well. If you’re looking to brighten up your home’s exterior, you could do a lot worse than Canary Yellow!
