Curb appeal plays a crucial role in homeownership, as it can create a lasting impression on potential buyers or simply make you feel proud of your property. One affordable and impactful way to transform the exterior appearance of your home is by altering the paint color of your front door, and perhaps your shutters if they coordinate. This small change can have a significant effect, instantly updating the overall look and feel of your home without breaking the bank.

Orange is more of a unique choice and can give a very retro vibe which can be perfect for many homes that are in the mid-century modern style. Sherwin Williams’ Navel has this effect.

Yellow is a sunshine-y and cheerful color that promotes optimism! It is important to note that yellows should be chosen carefully. When direct sunlight hits a primary yellow, it can become blindingly bright. Stick to a yellow that is either slightly de-saturated or has a tiny bit of white. Sherwin Williams’ Daisy is a safe, yet joyful choice.
