What Do Front-Door Colors Mean?

When you first walk up to a home you’re interested in purchasing one of the first things you notice is the front door. The front door is not only an entrance for the home but also provides a glimpse into the homeowner’s personality. Front doors are the 1st impression a home makes to its future new homeowner and its guests. The color of a front door holds significant value because colors drive our emotions. Ever seen the color of a front door you didn’t like? How did it make you feel? From that moment, what were your initial assumptions about that home? In a subtle manner, front door impression sets the stage for how a buyer will view your home, as well as your guests. So let’s take a few front-door color examples.


  • Take a moment and look at the yellow door in the image below? What thoughts come to mind? Do you think the homeowner is confident about their personality, and there’s a strong possibility they’re an outgoing, welcoming person? What would you expect to see once you walk-in, other bright colors? You could say individualism would probably best suit this homeowner’s personality type. ๐Ÿ˜Š


  • Now let’s take a look at the red door below. Do London, English-type undertones come to mind? How about class, sophistication, a sense of status? In some cultures, a red door also means good luck and in Scotland, homeowners paint their front door RED when they pay off their mortgage. ๐Ÿพ

Black-Brown (Dark Stained)

  • Ever feel that when you approach a dark stained door (i.e. black, brown) you need to speak with confidence?  Dark stain doors communicate and project an aura of strength, power, and authority. Although, natural colored brown doors convey warmth, and reliability, with its natural organic look, its the opposite for dark-stained brown doors.  Darker shades of brown signal an inclination for privacy, and possess a conservative personality. ๐Ÿ˜Ž


  • What are your first thoughts, that come to mind when you think of the color blue, whether its light or dark?   Is it water, beach, somewhere tropical? All of these thoughts provide a sense of calmness, serenity, and relaxation. This is exactly what a blue (light or dark) front door communicates to its guests and potential buyers. Blue doors are also associated with assuring its homeowner, their home is a retreat amidst a chaotic world. ๐Ÿ–


  • With a timeless look, a green door promotes a psychological sense of harmony, ambition, financially security, and safety. Of course, it does transmit a taste for the preppy style.  ๐Ÿ‘”


  • Risk-taker!  This is what a homeowner is telling you. They are comfortable with risk, and generally have a free-spirit, comfortable with who they are, and march to the beat of their own drum.  ๐Ÿ‘

 Whether we realize it or not, the color of the front-door is important as you gathered from the examples above. There is a psychological component involved when a potential buyer first sees your home. Colors impact our moods, emotions, and subtly communicate a homeowner’s personality. Of course, once you purchase your new home if the front door color doesn’t communicate what you want to project then you can paint it the color you want! To learn more about other front door colors:
