These days people use their homes to make a lot of statements. Often, you look for a way to make a bold statement without going over the top. This is completely relatable for a lot of people. Are you looking for a fun and unique way to add a little extra zip to your exterior but you don’t want to completely redo every aspect? Do you mostly have a house color you love but wish there was a way to punch it up a bit? If either of these sound like you, you may want to consider to a color coordinated front door.

This is a method of taking paint samples and selecting one that is in contrast to the rest of the house but within a basic color scheme. It makes the front door a focal piece of the house. It draws people to the door both visually and then physically as it provides an inviting entrance into your inner sanctuary. It also gives a glance into who you are as people explore your palette. It shows a lot of you when people reflect on how much contrast or warmth or whimsy you used in the selection of the colors.

Painting a popping accent color onto your front door is a perfect way to update your home’s exterior without breaking the bank. It lets you show off a little fun and flair in a safe and minimalistic way. Your door becomes a draw and a statement all of its own. And, the best part is that it is a small enough project that you can change it as often as you’d like without investing in a huge project. Once you get started, you may find that each season needs a new shade to bring out the personality your house may have been hiding.
