What does your front door say about you?

When visiting a home for the first time, what is the first thing you are greeted with? The front door.


Whether we realize it or not, the colours we choose to surround ourselves with reveal a lot about our moods and personalities. And when it comes down to our homes, one of the most important elements to consider is the colour of the front door. In this blog we will explore different front door paint options and the statements they make about your home.


Cheerful Yellow:

 Yes, we know it is bold but, wow, what a statement! For some, yellow is a perfect colour to experiment with for the front door. Not only does it work as an excellent accent to the exterior of your home, it is a colour that evokes curiosity, humour and merriment.  Because of its brightness, yellow always gives a welcoming atmosphere to any home.


Natural Green:

 Green is an excellent option for any West Coast home.  This colour connotes a sense of peace, balance, health and tranquility.  It also ties in to natural elements and the surrounding environment.


Classic Red:

You can never go wrong with a classic red door (in my opinion-given it is my favorite colour!).  For many cultures, red is a symbolic colour that means “welcome.” When painting a front door red, the homeowner is saying that their home is fully of vibrancy, energy, and life.


Evening Black:

In colour psychology, black is a colour that is often associated with power and strength.  It is also a hue that evokes sophistication and elegance. When painting your front door black, it theoretically indicates that a person of importance inhabits the home. I don’t buy that ……


If you own Vancouver real estate and would like to make a statement about your home this season, start with a fresh coat of paint to your front door. Now is a perfect time to pull out that paint brush and experiment with different colours. But just remember, the colour you choose will say a lot about you so make sure to choose wisely!
