Lately, I’ve noticed a growing number of yellow painted front doors on homes around Massachusetts. Frankly, I’ve seen enough now to prompt and investigation. I have to know. Is this a color trend, or is there meaning behind it? Turns out, it’s both. In fact, the more I dove in, the more I discovered about door color and what each color signifies. Choosing a front door color is important, and here’s why.
Some front door colors hold a historical significance, while others are more of a mood, or vibe the homeowner wishes to convey. Of couse, many door colors are chosen based on matching the shutters, or paint color of the house. Whether you have put much thought into the color of your front door or not. Find out what your color means, right here, according to the experts. I absorbed information on this subject from several sources, from The Spruce, to Window Nation, Realtor.com, Window World, and also House Digest.
Your front door is a predominant feature on your home’s aesthetics. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then perhaps it could be said that the front door is the entry into the soul of the home. It works for me. You welcome family and friends into your personal space through the front door. Mail and packages get delivered to your front door. First kisses happen at the front door. You open the front door to call your kids in for dinner from playing outside. Life happens at the front door. So paint color matters. And it can have meaning.
