Trend Alert: Statement Doors

posted on in Global Blogs

Statement front doorsIt’s a trend we’ve seen growing for a few years now, but we can officially say bright and bold statement front doors are here to stay. A brightly colored front door can show off your personal style, increase curb appeal, and help direct the eye right where you want it — your entrance.

Bright house colors are no longer reserved for traditional Victorian-style homes. They can look great with a number of home color schemes, and work on almost any home style from the super modern to true historic homes. A colorful front entry door can help to revive your curb appeal and give guests a look into your personality. When it comes to adding color to your entry, your color options are pretty endless. Here are four examples of bright entry doors to help inspire you.

Red: Classic, yet bold

Red is a classic color for a front door. Often seen in colonial and early American architecture, a red door was traditionally used as a sign of welcome. Red is a vibrant color and offers a positive energy. It looks great as a contrast against white siding but can also stand out against darker colors or brick facades as seen in the image below.

Yellow: Cheery and bright

Yellow can be a bright, eye-catching color, reminiscent of sunshine and often associated with happiness. Yellow front doors really make a statement — and can look great with a variety of color schemes. Although they are both bright colors, yellow can complement red brick for a cheery exterior.

Navy: Bold and moody

Navy or dark blue can give a polished, sophisticated look to a home’s exterior. Blue and white are a classic pairing, making navy front doors a great fit for white exteriors or trim, especially when searching for a coastal feel. But blue or navy front doors are not limited to a simple color scheme — navy can also look great when paired with neutrals or brick.
