As interior design and landscaping take up a majority of our time when we think of our home’s aesthetic, the home’s exterior can many times be overlooked completely. It can be hard to balance everything, especially if you’re on a budget, so you may even choose to forgo any changes to the home’s exterior completely. However, there’s one simple thing you can do to help with minimal effort: painting your front door!
Best of all, you can help make your home stand out, even during the snowy months when everything sort of blurs together. This is also why it can be tough to sell during the winter. So which colors should you choose in order to help make your home stand out?
One of the best choices is black, since it is a classic that will never go out of style. It goes well it all colors, and especially makes a statement if your house is white. You can never really go wrong with black, since it is timeless and will always look classy and elegant.
If you want to keep things bright and cheerful even in the colder months, you can consider going for yellow, which is always associated with springtime and summery sun. It can help keep even the dreariest days feel bright.
For those who are looking to make a big statement, a bold red door will certainly do the trick. Red always pops very well against white, so your door will certainly be a beacon of color even if everything else is completely covered in snow.
If you love chasing the trend, you can go for Pantone’s 2023 color of the year, which is a vivid shade of magenta. It will absolutely pop even on days without snow, but on gray winter days, your home’s door will cheer up even the grumpiest of grinches.
If pink isn’t your thing, maybe a good compromise can be purple. Think deep shades of purple like eggplant, or if you’re feeling even more bold you can go for an ube shade of purple. This color will also certainly stand out during the drearier days of the year.
