7 Front Door Paint Colors I Love!

Updated: Oct 19, 2021

As I bought candy for trick or treaters today, I realized it's the time of year where

front door colors are taking center stage!

Is your front door in need of a refresh?

Not sure where to start or what color to choose?

No problem!

Check out 7 of my favorite Sherwin Williams paint colors for your front door!

1) Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black

There is something about a black front door that is the perfect neutral entrance to your home! Holiday wreaths and seasonal decor take center stage with black as the backdrop. I may also be biased as this is the color of our front door...

Black front doors add a sharp contrast to white and gray exterior paint colors. I also love a black front door next to red brick.

2) Sherwin Williams Naval

Is a dark blue front door more your style? Sherwin Williams Naval is the perfect dark blue to make a statement. This color is rich and vibrant, but also dark enough still be considered a neutral.

This is another paint color that looks phenomenal next to red brick. I also love a dark blue front door with a soft gray, yellow, white, off-white, or beige exterior paint color.

3) Sherwin Williams Peppercorn

This dark gray color has a subtle warm undertone which makes it the perfect inviting color for your front door. Add a pop of greenery in a wreath or arrangement to make your entrance even more inviting!

This color looks fantastic next to white wash brick. I also love it with a white, off-white, or pale green exterior paint color.

4) Sherwin Williams Dorian Gray

Looking for a lighter color to compliment a dark exterior paint color? Take a look at Sherwin Williams Dorian Gray! Many people lean into white front doors when pairing with a darker exterior paint, but white doors tend to show marks, dirt, etc. This gray color still gives you the contrast, but is a little more forgiving!

I love this front door color with navy blue homes. It's a stunner!

5) Sherwin Williams Decisive Yellow

Let's take a look at some fun colors! I'm a huge fan of a bright and cheery yellow front door. My favorite yellow is Sherwin Williams Decisive Yellow. It's a bright yellow that packs a punch in the best way. If you are going to lean into a bright front door, lean in all the way!

All shades of gray pair so well with a yellow front door.

I also love this bright yellow color with a navy exterior!

6) Sherwin Williams Heartthrob

A red front door is such a fun classic choice! There is something about a red front door that takes you into the coziness of a Hallmark Christmas movie no matter the time of year. Sherwin Williams Heartthrob is a beautiful red that captures your attention and brings out that feeling of "home".

A red door is absolutely beautiful on a white exterior. I also love red front doors paired with a dark gray exterior color.

7) Sherwin Williams Hazel

I have had 3 clients select various shades of turquoise and aqua marine in the last year. These bright blue-green colors give the same fun and cheery vibe as a yellow, but it is a fun new twist to add to the mix! Sherwin Williams Hazel is a beautiful compliment without being too overpowering.

This color looks phenomenal next to most dark exterior paint colors. I really love this color next to a dark charcoal exterior!
