Teal is a color that can be interpreted as calming, happy, and welcoming. Reminiscent of pristine caribbean ocean water, the color teal or turquoise may even have a positive impact on your mood. Although a traditional color, it’s anything but boring; and as a front door color, teal can be downright unexpected.
Teal front doors can complement both historic and modern houses. It makes a great front door color for brick houses as it provides a contrast without looking out of place. Consider a contrasting color - like black or white - for moulding or sidelights to provide additional interest.
