What The Color Of Your Front Door Says About You

DOOR_DREAMCASA

Giving your home good curb appeal is more than just a real estate tactic. The outside of the home in many cases is a reflection of the inside of the home. In the inside of the home, people express their individuality through their décor. The outside of the home is no different. People who pride themselves on décor will give a lot of attention to the outside of the home as well.

There are several different ways you can increase the curb appeal of your home, some simple, some more complex. Colorful flowers, garden lights, a well-manicured lawn and a chic mailbox are just a few examples. The most fun example would have to be your door color.

In many cases, people choose to go with an accent color, not necessarily a color that matches the exterior of their home. This opens the door (pun intended) to many possibilities. For this reason, your door says a lot about who you are.

Here are some of the many colors you can paint your door and what it could say about you.

1. Red

Red is a bold yet traditional color to paint your door. The brightness of the color suggests that the inside is lively and exciting. Traditionally a red door screams ‘come on in’ and is reflective of an extroverted, hospitable personality; somebody who’s always willing to host.

2. Blue

One of the most popular colors to paint your door is blue. It signifies peace and serenity. If your door is blue, you view your home as a refuge from the dastardly chaos of the outside world. You’re a calm peaceful individual and there’s no better place to kick back and relax.

3. Black

While black doesn’t mean stay away, it isn’t emblematic of the ‘mi casa su casa’ philosophy. It speaks of a very strong personality that demands order, authority, and power. When invited to a home with a black door, feel confident that you’re welcome, but don’t put your feet up on the coffee table.

4. Brown or Natural

A brown or natural finish signifies a very down to earth person. Like the earth, brown suggests stability, integrity, and reliability. If your door is brown, you value genuine people and create a non-judgemental environment where they can flourish.

5. Yellow

If your door is yellow, you’re probably a morning person and use a lot of exclamation points! It screams energy, positivity, and excitement! It also signifies confidence, that you’re not afraid to stand out and are very comfortable rubbing off on some of your less enthusiastic guests.

6. Green

If you paint your door green, you’re likely a very driven and ambitious person. Green is strongly associated with growth and money, which often go hand in hand. An ambitious person is not only looking to grow their wealth, but also enrich their lives. It goes without saying that green is one of the most popular colors to paint your door.

    My door is white. What does that signify, if anything? The house is a faded grey, due to be repainted a richer grey, and white doors and trim work best for a clean look.

    1. Jen Dininny says:

      White: A crisp white door is for those who are (or would like to be) organized, neat and clean.

  2. I do love color, saw a purple double door, I was surprised because most HOAs don’t allow it. I do again like and think tells a lot about the owners.
