Your front and patio doors are among the first things that visitors will see when they get to your home. It is important to make a good impression. With the right color, this is easier to do.


EcoView Windows & Doors offers a few tips on choosing the perfect color for your doors.

1. Match Your Home’s Style and Features

This very basic principle actually works as early as choosing a door replacement itself. There are no hard, fast rules for picking color to match, but for classic home designs, it’s best to go with a more subdued and simple color palette. The Queen Anne, for example, favors blacks, greys, and whites because these compliment the dignified elegance that this style exudes. For more contemporary homes, sky’s technically the limit, but it’s best to still keep things consistent and complimentary.

2. Work with Your Surroundings

With homes that sport neutral colors overall, you can also closely match your door to your natural surroundings. A one-to-one correspondence is not necessary. Create a balance by going for colors within a small range of variance from the predominant natural colors around you. Wood finishes and darker shades of green or brown are perfect for this concept.

3. Pick a Color Based on Your Personality

Proponents of color theory say that each color reflects something unique about you. Red, for example, is most associated with passion, while green is seen as more natural. If you want to project an impression of calm, deck your doors in blue. Brown on entry or patio doors speaks to traditionalists.

At the end of the day, it boils down to what you prefer for your home. For more assistance, feel free to call EcoView Windows & Doors at (844) 216-7800 and we will be happy to help you choose the color and style of your door.
