You don't need to paint the entire exterior of your home to make a statement. In fact, few features make an instant impact like your front door. The best colour for your door depends a lot on the style of your house, so before you start dreaming of a glossy new entranceway, take note of the style of the door, along with the trim that frames it.

If you have a traditional home with an old, solid door, classic colours like navy blue, rich red, browns and whites will help you to create a realistic period style. Traditional country-style homes generally suit nature-inspired hues like warm muted greens, blue greys and berry reds while modern front doors look fabulous painted in glossy red, royal blue or jet black.
