 Popular Front Door and Sidelight Colors for Your Exterior

When it comes to enhancing your home's curb appeal, one of the most impactful changes you can make is updating the color of your front door and sidelights. These elements not only serve as focal points but also set the tone for the entire exterior of your home. Whether you're aiming for a classic look, a bold statement, or something in between, choosing the right colors can make all the difference. In this blog post, we'll explore some popular Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams colors that can elevate the appearance of your home's entrance.

Classic Elegance with "Hale Navy" (Benjamin Moore)

If timeless elegance is what you're after, you can't go wrong with a deep navy hue like "Hale Navy." This rich color exudes sophistication and pairs beautifully with a variety of exterior materials, from brick to siding. Pair it with crisp white trim for a striking contrast that commands attention.

Warm Welcome with "Reddened Earth" (Sherwin Williams)

For a warm and inviting vibe, consider a hue like "Reddened Earth" by Sherwin Williams. This earthy red tone adds a pop of color without overwhelming the façade of your home. It's perfect for traditional or cottage-style exteriors and pairs well with natural wood accents.

Timeless Charm with "Black" (Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams)

Black is a classic choice for front doors that never goes out of style. Whether you opt for Benjamin Moore's "Black" or Sherwin Williams' "Tricorn Black," this dramatic hue adds instant curb appeal and works well with nearly any color palette. Pair it with neutral siding colors for a sophisticated look or use it to create contrast against lighter exteriors.

Fresh and Inviting with "Wythe Blue" (Benjamin Moore)

If you're seeking a color that evokes tranquility and freshness, "Wythe Blue" is an excellent choice. This soft, muted green-blue shade feels welcoming and pairs beautifully with white or cream trim. It's a versatile color that complements both traditional and contemporary home styles.

Modern Sophistication with "Iron Ore" (Sherwin Williams)

For a modern twist on traditional black, consider "Iron Ore" by Sherwin Williams. This deep charcoal hue adds a sense of drama and sophistication to your home's exterior. It pairs well with a variety of materials, including wood, brick, and stucco, making it a versatile option for any architectural style.

Bright and Cheery with "Coral Gables" (Benjamin Moore)

For those who crave a bold burst of color, "Coral Gables" is a fantastic choice. This vibrant coral shade exudes energy and personality, making a memorable statement for your front door. Pair it with crisp white trim and lush greenery for a cheerful and inviting entryway.

When selecting a color for your front door and sidelights, consider the overall aesthetic of your home, as well as the surrounding landscape and neighborhood. Samples and swatches are your best friends—test out a few options in different lighting conditions to see how they complement your home's exterior. With the right color choice, you can enhance your home's curb appeal and create a welcoming entrance that reflects your personal style.

We had Spectrum Painting power wash and paint the outside of our house. They did such a fantastic job that we tripled the scope of the project during the process and the results are phenomenal. We wound up having them do the siding, window trim, doors, lights and much more. The end results is better then I expected. The entire Spectrum team was amazing throughout the process and on several occasions went above and beyond. I would highly recommend them.
