You shouldn't ignore your front door. It is an integral component of your home’s exterior and one of the first things people see when they walk into your home. Together with the siding and the roof, it helps make a big impact on your home’s beauty and curb appeal.

Illinois Energy Windows & Siding, Inc. your local source of replacement windows and doors, shares some of the best color ideas you can consider applying to freshen up your front entry.

1. Shades of Blue

Different shades of blue work well for your front door, but that would depend on the current appearance of your facade. For example, blues with a subtle hint of grey can be used if the exterior components like stone walkways and front yard plant pots have that same color. In case there is an overhang above your door, however, bright blues will help bring them out of the shadows.

2. Celery Green

This lively shade of green can make your front door stand out as long as it matches the hues of your surrounding landscape. It gives life to an otherwise dreary facade while creating a seamless connection between your home and your front lawn or garden.

3. Bright Red

You can’t go wrong with the cherry red hue for a front door, especially if the rest of the exterior utilizes colors ranging from light to dark gray. For this, choose a door with windows on the upper half. That way, the color won't be too overwhelming.

4. Emerald Green

Like the bright cherry red, this interesting shade of green can be used if your home is the more traditional or historic type. Make sure the surrounding trim is of a completely different color. In this instance, any soft color like buttery yellow should work fine.
