Katelyn Preston January 6, 2017

Whether you’re looking to sell, or just want to give your home a quick facelift, your curb appeal goes a long way in making a great first impression. While there are plenty of ways to ramp up the look of your front entryway, the easiest way to add instant curb appeal is to give your front door a fresh coat of paint. But with so many options to choose from, it can be daunting to pick the best color. Don’t worry — to help you with that, we’ve put together a list of some of the most trending colors of the season; take a look!

Canary yellow

This is a cheerful shade of yellow that will add an instant pop of color to your entryway. Frequently associated with warmth, energy, and happiness, a lively yellow can instantly perk up your outdoor space, when used on window shutters and items on the front porch along with the front door. In fact, it’s a good idea to coordinate your front door with those other elements, tying everything together.

Shades of red

Red is almost always a trendy color; it’s considered a color that reflects strength, passion, power, and life and can easily infuse those qualities into your home’s décor. By painting the front entrance to your home in a statement-making red, you can help bring some of this vitality indoors.

If you think choosing a red for your front door is too daring, you can opt for a deeper hue with a more crimson tone. Also, rather than painting the entire surface of the door red, you could use glass inserts and paint around them for a more sophisticated look.

Peppy orange

If there is one color that can end up going horribly wrong all too fast, it’s orange. However, that should not deter you from using it. An orange front door with complementing neutral tones in the rest of your home’s exterior is a lovely way to add an extra bit of pizzazz to your curb appeal.


Painting your front door in green could result in two different scenarios — you are either introducing a new, refreshing color, or playing off your surrounding landscape. Be it lime, mint or olive, you'll always find a shade of green that will fit in with your external palette. If you’re willing to experiment with a brighter shade, make sure to balance it with a more restrained hue on the rest of the house.


While blue is an oft-used color indoors, blue front doors are a bit rare - you don't see them as often as other colors. It is possible to make blue hues work, the key is to select the right trim and siding colors or materials. For instance, a bright blue door paired with neutral trim and sidings will help shake things up beautifully to give a fresh new feel to your home.

Now that you have the trendiest front door colors before you, explore them to see which is right for your home.
