Five Popular Front Door Colors And What They (Might) Say About You

(HIT) - Whether or not we realize it, the colors with which we surround ourselves – in our clothes, cars, and homes -- reveal a lot about us. For example, bright colors often indicate an outgoing personality, while subdued colors imply a more low-key persona. How can a hue say so much about you? According to Debbie Zimmer, color expert at the Paint Quality Institute, color has a psychological component through which we often communicate our moods, feelings, emotions, and personality. One way we do that is through the paint colors we choose, even on the exterior of our home. “The entire exterior color scheme has meaning, but the color of the front door is especially important,” says Zimmer. “Like a necktie, which is the focal point of an outfit, the front door is the focal point of the home. The color there sends a strong message – in the case of the front door, providing insight into how we view our home.” So, what does your front door color say about you and the way you regard your home? Here’s what a color psychologist might say about some of the most common front door colors: BLUE. Shown to be the most popular color in many studies, a blue front door signals that the homeowner views his or her home as a place of refuge -- calm, serene, and relaxing, the perfect retreat from an often harsh and demanding world. GREEN. Green is another popular color for the front door, and with good reason. Psychologically speaking, green connotes health, safety, tranquility, and harmony, all highly desirable attributes for the home environment. BLACK. Those who paint the front door black are communicating something entirely different about their homes. A black front door projects strength, sophistication, power, and authority, indicating to all who enter or even passersby that the home is a serious place inhabited by a person of substance. RED. Regarded as a powerful “punch” color, red is the color of passion. By painting the front door red, the homeowner is saying that the home within is a vibrant place, full of life, energy, and excitement. BROWN. Whether painted or stained, a brown front door looks natural and organic, but it can send mixed messages in terms of color psychology. On the one hand, brown conveys warmth, stability, and reliability, positive attributes all, but certain darker shades of brown signal a desire for privacy, even isolation. Very likely, the color you’ve chosen for your front door projects the way you want your home to be viewed. But if you inherited the color from the previous owner, or if you want to say something different about yourself and your home, you can quickly change the color, says Zimmer. “It takes only a few hours to prep and re-paint a standard-size front door, and by applying a durable, top quality 100% acrylic latex paint, you can make a totally different color statement that will last for years.”
