Painting your front door is the cheapest and easiest way to give your home instant curb appeal. However, choosing the right paint color for your front door can be such a difficult decision! I’ve rounded up over 27 of my favorite front door paint color ideas to help inspire you. (The paint colors with asterisks next to them mean that the original color of the door is unknown. I’ve chosen a close color match for you to consider.) Enjoy!

“What color is your front door?” is the NUMBER ONE question I get asked here on Home Stories A to Z. 🙂 My Wythe Blue front door still makes me happy each time I enter it. It’s a great calming color and looks fantastic with gray. To see all of the paint colors I used on the exterior of my our click here.

NOTE: Southern Living states that this door is painted with Benjamin Moore Gentleman’s Gray which is a dark navy color. However, speaking from experience with this shade I am not sure this is correct (or the photo editing and reflective gloss paint has completely distorted the paint color). If you want a blue paint that is truer to match to this door, then you might want to consider Benjamin Moore Caribbean Azure.
