Before stepping into your home, the door is the first aspect of your home guests will see. More importantly, its what you will see every single day – what welcomes you home. You definitely don’t want it to be a plain, boring colour. It should reflect your personality and give your guests a taste of what awaits as they step in. That’s also why it should match with your home decor.
Ready for our fresh take on door colours that you should consider for your home? Here they are:
The Sky Door
A sky blue coloured door with black handles paired with white walls gives a traditional, colonial touch to your home. Other colours that compliment your blue door are grey and pink. You could also pair it with green for a tropical look. If a neutral palette is on your mind, a greyish-blue door colour is easy on the eyes and has a calming effect. A bright blue, like the door in the picture below, go beautifully with white trims and slate grey walls.
For a warm, retro look right at the entrance of your home, go for a rustic red door. Combine it with a muted tone for the walls and white handles. You could also try wine-red for a similar feel. A deep, bold red can be a real stunner at your entrance. Colours like burgundy combined with black look amazing in almost any home.
Whites are classic. Period. You just can’t go wrong with white. But to give it a twist, you could go for tinted whites or textured whites. Different shades of white may provide a dimension to your home decor that it craves. What colours can you combine your white door with? It should really be which colours do white not go with because its such a versatile colour. Install silver handles on your white door to make a beautiful combination. Yellow or even pink are great choices to be paired with white. For a sophisticated look, choose brown furnishings to go with your white door and off white walls.
For those who love nature, green is a natural choice for interiors. There are various beautiful shades of green that will spring life into any home. From emerald green to muted greens, picking green for your doors lends a feeling of serenity. Muted shades of green look great on kitchen doors, giving a vibrant and fresh look. They also happen to blend nicely with blues and greys. Combine this natural beauty with white or fawn for the perfect finish.
Want an unexpected shade for your front door? How about coral? When paired right, coral lends a fun and playful touch. Black hardware is a great choice to be paired with your coral door. Complement it with a pale cream brick wall. This pinkish-orange hue will animate and enliven the surroundings.
Yellow is a versatile colour that goes well with almost any other colour. An earthy yellow can go well with light as well as dark undertones of green or clay. Sunny yellow door colour can be your dose of energy, offering loads of style. This cheerful tone goes well with white to give a relaxing and spacious feel.
High-contrast exteriors need a high-contrast colour palette. The beauty of a white exterior with a chocolate brown door is unbeatable. You can use such accent shade for furniture and other home décor items. Experiment with dark and light brown door colour combinations for a royal look. Chocolate brown adds a very sophisticated and rich look to the surroundings. It brings in a pinch of drama as well as a dash of cosiness. It’s an excellent option for small spaces. Neutral shades like off white & beige paired with dark chocolate brown give an aesthetic appearance. It’s a fun idea to experiment with warm and cool tones together to strike a balance.
A black door adds some visual excitement and drama that is rare and unusual for your eyes. A white door is usually expected. A black one elevates the space as it is bold and classy. Combine black with silver and white for a monochrome door—a perfect door design to add a mysterious touch to your home. A glossy black door is elegant and royal. With the right trims and walls, it’s a style statement. A semi-glossy black door has an instant look of luxury. You can have one black door and don’t need to match the rest of the doors.
