Painted Front Doors

Shut the Front Door!


I love it when people paint their front door in a wild bright colour. It lets you know ‘fun’ people reside within. Is your front door painted? Are you ‘fun’? I would like to test and prove this theory. In terms of curb appeal, the front door is a pretty important place. You can leave the front door neutral and let it blend in to every other house on your block, or you can paint it and stand out! Painted front doors can give your home a whimsical, polished look especially if you choose to accessorize and style it accordingly.

When you style your front door consider fixed elements (stair rails, fences, steps, hardware, lighting, house numbers, etc.) and changeable elements which you can switch throughout the year. Changeable items like planters, urns, a welcome mat and other styling props will pull the whole look together. And you can create different vignettes for different seasons and holidays.

The red door flanked with twin topiaries is just lovely. Red is probably my favourite colour for a front door. It pops out at you more than any other colour, yet it retains a certain sense of classic-ness.

Not only do I enjoy this painted door because it is the exact colour of my living room walls, but it works well with this whole porch area.

Painted front doors like this pretty cerulean blue are a quick fix way to bring energy and increase curb appeal. Plus, don’t you want to let everyone know how fun you are?

  1. Love all of the brightly painted doors! I think that green one is my favorite – wish I could paint ours! We have a mandatory screen door (dogs and toddler and such) but one day, oh one day.

  2. I know! Silly toddlers and animals for getting in the way of our design goals! 🙂

  3. My front door has been red for about 10 years. I love it but am ready for a change. One hint-I used high gloss paint and didn’t rlieaze how hard it is to get a smooth finish without brush marks. Of course that could just be my painting skills or lack thereof! I think I like dark turquoise for my door also.

  4. Turquoise is beautiful, but I think red will always win for me!

  5. Thank you for featuring my Turquoise door! I really, really need to paint my front steps LOL. I love the yellow and grey and wish my house could handle red.

  6. I love your steps Sarah! And you are very welcome!
