Your entry door is an important part of your home – it not only makes an impression on visitors, but it also keeps your family safe. At Carolina Home Remodeling, we offer entry doors that are both durable and beautiful to meet all of your needs. While the style of door you choose shows the kind of taste you have, the color can also mean a lot. Before your entry door installation, consider what the color of it says about your family:
Different shades of blue can say different things. For instance, a royal blue door can mean you’re prosperous and positive while a Navy blue door can mean you’re calm and grounded; a powder blue door can mean you’re friendly and sincere.
You don’t see many yellow entry doors, so it’s safe to assume yellow can mean many different things. The most common meanings of a yellow door are confidence, curiosity, humor, energy, and understanding.
When you think of black, you may think about order, control, or elegance. If you paint your entry door black, you’ll be telling people that you’re sophisticated and authoritative.
Just like leafy vegetables or the idea of “going green,” green entry doors of darker or medium shades give off the vibe of health, community, and safety. Brighter colors of green give the impression of excitement and adventure.
The color white often symbolizes things like organization, cleanliness, simplicity, and serenity, and a white entry door is no different. You’ll likely give off the vibe of being put-together and coordinated.
While brown is a common entry door color, different shades can mean very different things. Lighter colors of brown can mean warmth, stability, and reliability while darker shades can mean privacy or even isolation.
Red is one of the most common colors for an entry door and in early American tradition, a red door meant “welcome” (which is why you’ll still find many churches with red doors). While a bright red shade says you’re exciting and vibrant, a darker red shade can mean you’re warm and inviting.
Like yellow, not many homeowners paint their entry door purple. Because the color is associated with spirituality, purple will tell your neighbors that you’re open-minded, free-spirited, and willing to take risks.
The color of orange is considered vibrant and exciting, so if your family is the same way, consider painting your entry door orange. You’ll also give the impression that you like entertaining and taking on new challenges.
