When we’re doing an exterior paint job, we hear from a lot of homeowners who want to embrace colour, they really do, but trends are fleeting, and painting your entire house a colour takes serious commitment. It’s also a big expense.

What’s the solution? Paint your front door. We’re seeing more and more homeowners in Vernon painting their door because it’s a low-risk, high rewards way to incorporate colour.

Tips for Painting Your Front Door From a Vernon Painter

Consider your landscaping and siding

Maybe you’ve always wanted to have a red door, but your siding is green. Apart, they’re great colours. Together, they’re…Christmas. When you’re choosing a paint colour for your door, be sure it’ll complement your much more expensive and important exterior siding first.

You might also be surprised how much of an impact a painted front door can have when it mimicks the colours of flowers in your yard. This purple-blue door pops all the more because of the small bunch of bedded flowers and the pot in the same shade. Plus, it’s a lovely complement to the olive siding and terra cotta tiles.


Black is a colour too

Charming, farm-house, classic…all words used to describe the effect of a black front door. For almost any exterior siding colour, you can’t go wrong with a black door. Be sure to update your fixtures as well, so your lights are also black rather than bronze or silver, for really high impact.


Remember to paint the inside as well

Why stop at the exterior? If you have the paint, while you’re at it, use it to make a statement on the other side of your front door. Painting your front door on the outside as well as the inside will also give your colour statement a seamless flow.
