When you pull in the driveway or return from walking the dog, how do you feel about your Arlington, VA curb appeal? Is it everything you want it to be or more than a little ho hum? You know you want a change but rethinking exterior color schemes can be overwhelming. The simplest solution? Re-do your front door in a paint color that suits your personality.

Here are 6 great painting ideasto give you inspiration when choosing paint colors for your front door.


Nothing says “welcome to our happy home” quite like flowers flanking a cheery yellow front door. This sunny paint color draws the eye to your home’s entryway and ensures that your home has a lively and inviting curb appeal. For a fool-proof yellow check out Marigold Yellow by Benjamin Moore Paint Colors.


A strong, dependable choice, blue front doors compliment any architecture and blend well with landscaping. A bright blue will be an appreciated contrast for more neutral exterior color schemes while a muted, gray blue is more versatile. For a fun and trustworthy blue, consider shaking things up with Blueberry Hill by Benjamin Moore Paint Colors.


A blue so strong it needs it’s own category, soothing aqua blues and vibrant turquoise paint colors are gracing the front doors of many Arlington, VA homes. The spectrum of hues in this family are so vast they can be tinted to suit any style and personality. For a soothing, natural aqua, try Wythe Blue by Benjamin Moore Paint Colors. For a spunky turquoise, check out Nifty Turquoise.


Red is a statement color, and the statement you make varies greatly and depends on where you fall on the spectrum. Bold reds are great for complimenting modern architecture or monochromatic homes, while deeper, more traditional red paint colors pair well with colonial, classic curb appeal. For a vibrant red, take a look at Antique Red by Sherwin Williams paints.


Black is an elegant front door choice, especially when finished in a sleek, glossy exterior paint. It is a versatile choice as it pairs well with almost every other color imaginable. When working with a darker exterior paint color, be sure to paint the trim around your front door white, so your sexy new black door does not blend into the background. If black is your choice, you cannot go wrong with Carbon Copy.


Want to bring a natural energy to your Arlington, VA home exterior? Then green is your go-to paint color family. From muted tones or bold brights, green front doors are a fresh surprise as they work well with landscaping and can be tinted perfectly to match brick, wood and vinyl siding.
