Curb appeal is exceedingly important to homeowners, whether you’re selling your home or living happily in it and wish to make a good first impression. A very cost efficient way to drastically change the look of the exterior of your home is changing your front door paint color (and possibly your shutters, if they match).

Red is a classic front door hue yet it is a shock of excitement. This color is perfectly matched to Sherwin Williams’ Real Red.

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.
