I painted our front door black years ago, but I was ready for a change. Painting your front door is one of the easiest ways to update your home’s exterior.
Our home faces the west, so the color at 7 in the morning can look completely different at 7 in the evening.
I wanted a blue for our front door and selected several different palettes – many of which included blue-green paint colors.
I narrowed my selection down to the following five Dutch Boy blue-green paint colors: However, with an exterior door, there is a lot of light bouncing around which means the color will most likely appear lighter than the paint swatch.
I ended up 3 shades darker on the color palette than I had originally planned. I also added a little screen to hide the decorative glass in our front door. I have never loved our front door and the decorative glass doesn’t fit with the style of our home.
The front door brightens up our home, and my neighbor across the street described it as a happy color.
