Front Door Refresh


Whether you’re prepping your home to sell or looking to freshen things up, a new coat of paint and a change of color on your front door can breath new life into your home’s entrance and boost it’s curb appeal. Here are some great ideas from Benjamin Moore.


Give your front door a dose of fresh color to perk up a home’s exterior and extend a gracious welcome.

Refreshing your door with a glossy new coat of paint is a quick way to make a lasting first impression. Benjamin Moore’s Aura® Grand Entrance® line, specially formulated for front doors, is available in any color.


A Case for Contrast

Most exterior paint colors and materials lean toward neutral shades, so a colorful front door is a chance to express your personal style through a central exterior architectural feature. Adding a statement color to the front door is comparable to what a silk scarf or tie does for an outfit—a small dose of color can do wonders to uplift the façade of a home while complementing the architecture and surrounding landscape.



Warm Welcome

Hot shots of red, yellow or orange are naturally warm and exuberant. Vivid accent colors make a strong design statement but mix surprisingly well with most other shades, especially the neutrals most often used as the primary color of a house.



Stay Cool

Green, gray and blue doors are a naturally gracious expression for the entrance to your home, especially when they contrast with a house’s warm undertones. For impact, search for saturated colors that will pop from surrounding architecture.




Notes on Harmony

Take your color cues from inside the house to pick a paint color you’ll love. Think about the colors of the space your door will open into. Pull a strong accent color from those spaces for color continuity or choose a more saturated shade of a primary interior color. And don’t worry about fading. Benjamin Moore Aura Grand Entrance is as durable as it is beautiful, specially formulated to go on smoothly and retain its color and gloss.
