Your front door is more than just an entrance to your home, it’s a guest’s first glimpse at your personality.

The all-important first impression of a home begins where you’d expect: the front door. It’s the way that guests enter our homes — literally. A pop of color marking the entrance to your home is an expressive and somewhat simple way to show your style. Therefore, it’s important to know what your color choice says about both you and your home.

But where do we get ideas about the meanings of color? Right outside of our doorstep! Subconsciously, nature is what drives our associate of color and emotion. Think about it: green remind us of plants, yellow of the sun, pink and purple strike the same chords as spring flowers and sunrises.

Whether you already have a painted front door, or you’re looking to pick a new color, flip through the slides above and find out which color is best for you.
