My 7 Favorite Front Door Colors

My 7 Favorite Front Door Colors


One of the number one questions when it comes to rennovating a home: what are the best front door paint colors?!

Well, if you’ve watched my HGTV show Hidden Potential, or follow along on my Instagram feed, you know that I’m BIG on curb appeal. It’s the first impression your home makes to the world!  And do we want our first impression to be a dull one?!  Of course not!

One of the easiest ways to customize the front of your home (with major impact) is to paint your front door. Sure, your front door may already be painted – but does its current color say anything meaningful about your personal style or you and your family?  If you answered no, let’s spice things up a little! Today I’m spilling some front door paint secrets to help you bring a little more LIFE to your curb appeal.  Let’s get painting!

My 7 Favorite Front Door Colors




1. Colondade Gray

Colonnade Gray  is, in my opinion, the perfect warm gray color for a front door. If you’re looking for a fresh new door color that works with a neutral color palette, this is the perfect paint color for you.




2. Vintage Vessel

This color, Vintage Vessel, is such a breath of fresh air. It’s a go-to color for homes that have a beachy or Craftsman vibe, and will look great from the street!




3. Hubbard Squash

Hubbard Squash is such a buttery, satisfying yellow color! It would work with both Craftsman and even more modern home exteriors, and is sure to bring a smile to anyone who passes through this sunny door.




4. Georgian Blue

Ahh, Georgian Blue, what a deep and rich blue color. Again, this paint color would work on more exterior styles than you might think, and it will bring so much depth to your curb appeal.




5. Copper Mountain

The award for unexpected color that ended up amazing goes to Copper Mountain!  This color is a great way to do something different with your front door while maintaining a more cohesive look with the rest of your exterior. Pro tip: trimming it with a nice, bright white paint will make it pop nicely.




6. Baroness

I know what you’re thinking: “Purple, Jas?!”  Seriously guys, trust me.  But with Baroness, this shade of purple looks so fresh and welcoming on a front door, and it will definitely set your home’s curb appeal apart from the rest of the street!  You’re welcome!




7. Night Owl

And last but not least, my favorite cool gray tone, Night Owl. If you’re more of a cool gray person than a warm gray person, I got you.  This color is timeless, but also rich.  Adding a fun metal door knocker will take it to the next level!


  • I’m not a contractor or designer. I’m just looking for some help regarding the color that might be nice for our front door. Our siding is a greyish light blue.

    Hopefully, you can give me some guidance. I would sincerely appreciate it.

    Thank you,

  • Our house is pewter gray with white trim and black shutters. I would love to paint our front door the Georgian Blue (it is now white). However, we have dogs that scratch at our front door. What do you recommend so the paint doesn’t get scratched off?
