Ideas for Styling Your Front Door
When you think of a beautiful, welcoming home facade, what comes to mind? Whether you imagine a stately Victorian home, an atomic age mid-century ranch, or a modern home, at the heart of that image is always a welcoming front door.
There are plenty of things to consider when choosing a new front door for your home from budget to security to energy-efficiency.

Colorful Door Designs
A splash of color is a beautiful way to add style to your home’s exterior. No matter what the color of your home’s trim and siding, a front door is a chance to break the rules a bit in all the right ways.
Here’s what a door’s color might say about the family or home behind it:
● Red: From understated brick red to bold crimson or cardinal red, red is warm and welcoming. It is said that the color red was often used in early America to welcome weary travelers. In the Feng Shui tradition, red symbolizes energy and passion. For a toned-down version, consider a merlot-colored door.
● Black: Black accents have risen to the top as one of the biggest home design trends over the past few years. From black window frames to secondary home siding accents, black brings crisp contrast, framing, and a controlled orderliness to home exterior design.
● Blue: Blue is a color that’s both friendly and calming, perfect for a household that’s down-to-earth and upbeat at the same time. Oceanic and jewel tones like sapphire and topaz can be stunning, or for a more subdued blue, a navy door is a stately choice.
● Natural Wood: A natural wood door adds an understated elegance to any style of home exterior. Lighter wood is practical, neat, and easygoing, while darker hues evoke classic beauty.
