Choosing Front Door Colors

Have you ever sat and stared at color samples with a blank stare and felt like saying… uh, I dunno?  I know I have and I’m supposed to be a pro.  But sometimes color choices can be downright hard!  But it really is important, right?  I mean the future happiness of our family could depend on this.

There must be some way modern technology can help with this.  Right?  Maybe there is.

I decided to try a little Photoshop magic on a picture I had.  I wanted to see what a difference changing the front door color made.  Take a look!

This is the original photo…nice and white.  Pretty house!

Let’s try some colors:

house-1-yellow

Looks nice in yellow….

But maybe…

house-1-blue

Blue would be better?  What do you think?  Darker blue maybe…

Or how about an old faithful…

house-1-red

Red!  Red looks good and it means something, right?

What if we stay away from color…

house-1-black

Now THAT looks good!  Black works for this house!

Pretty neat, huh?  Which one is your favorite?

    Black, absolutely. A dark maroon might look nice also.

    I love the black as well and am curious what you would choose for the inside/reverse side of the doors.

    Definitely the black followed by the yellow.

    How fun! I’m with you on this one RG..the black really brings out the character of the house.
