We love the look of a colorful front door to welcome guests into our home. Perhaps our front door is like our home’s jewelry — adding a little sparkle to the curb appeal. Painting your front door is one of the quickest (and prettiest) ways to change up your home’s exterior. Front door colors can be warm, cool or neutral. The freshest colors are warm and cool. You can use them as an accent in your exterior paint color scheme. Here are the freshest front door colors that we’re loving right now. 

Cool Front Door Colors

Our favorite cool front door colors include blue and purple shades. Green can be considered a cool color, but it can also be considered warm if it has a lot of yellow undertones. If you’re having trouble finding the perfect cool color for your front door, try sampling warm paint colors instead.
