It is for that reason that it is often known as the “face” of a house. A front door is an easy way to attract, or even detract, from the overall appearance of your house.

When choosing your style, you have a few options to choose between. Steel doors are the most common replacement door. It’s the least expensive option and most durable option; they’ll never warp, twist or crack. Aluminum doors are the newest type of material to be used for front doors. They can be baked with an enamel coating that never needs repainting and won’t rust. You can get these in every color and some are even offered in a wood finish. Fiberglass doors are more damage resistant than steel or aluminum doors. Fiberglass can be painted or stained to look like real wood. Wood doors are the favorite of home enthusiasts. You can get composite or genuine wood to give your home a great look and paint them any color to your hearts desire.

Now that you have your style of door, the color of your door can say a lot about you, your personality and your home. Color goes a long way to giving your house a lot of curb appeal. Each color has its own significance and meaning.

Red is the color that attracts a lot of attention. It says “look at me!” It is often seen as a sign that all are welcome as guests. It is a color for those who aren’t afraid to stand out in a crowd and be bold.

Blue is a calming color to those who are welcomed into your house. It says that you are calm and collective and go with the flow. A light blue suggests abundance and prosperity, while a darker blue might bring in a more positive energy.

Green is always a great choice to show people that you are a balanced person. Green is said to represent compassion and peace, as well as growth, renewal and harmony.

Yellow is the color of mental clarity, wisdom and understanding. It is always the color of the humorous. Yellow usually brings with it happy times and portrays confidence.
