Painting Tips For Your Exterior Door
Your front door plays an important role in the curb appeal of your entire property. A drab, boring front door with a lackluster paint job won’t get your home the attention it deserves – especially if you’re planning to sell it anytime soon.
Not only must exterior doors welcome visitors warmly to your home, they must stand up to the demands of Mother Nature. Here are some painting tips for your exterior door. For the best results, hire a Framingham exterior painter to handle the job.
Exterior Paint: Excellent ROI
If you’re looking for a high return on investment for your exteriors, a fresh coat of paint is the easiest and most affordable way to go about it. New or repainted front doors offer one of the highest ROIs when it comes to home improvements. That’s because it’s the first thing people see when they walk up to your home or drive by.
You don’t have to make extensive or permanent improvements anywhere else on the house to make a big impact. Explore your personality and add a fresh coat of paint to your exterior door for that wow factor.
Keep it Traditional
Don’t go too bold with your front door color or you risk turning off visitors and potential buyers. For this reason, stick with white, red, and black. White is crisp and clean, red is a classic color that symbolizes prosperity, and black is a stately color that commands attention.
Neutrals and Naturals
Blues and greens may seem like a bold choice, but these are in fact excellent natural color choices to try because they resemble nature. They add a bit of spice but they don’t go overboard.
Neutral earth tones offer your exteriors a classy, rustic feel. Also, neutrals tend to pair well with glass doors and heavy materials such as metal. Warm browns, beiges and almonds work well here.
When you have a striking personality, you want your style to show through in your front door. If you’re not afraid to get crazy, go with a bold color, within reason. Keep in mind, you will want to rein it in if you plan to sell your house, as you don’t want to turn off buyers. But if you plan to stay in your home, go for bold.
The possibilities are endless. You can go with a vibrant paint color, or add a door that resembles natural stone. You can try pastels for a muted look or a regal color like emerald green or royal blue. Even purple and yellow pair well when done correctly.
Whether you keep it simple or get a little daring, a fresh coat of paint on your front door works wonders.
