Painting Your Front Door


Did you know that painting your front door is a great way to help your home sell quicker? Why? Because it’s the first thing potential buyers see when they enter your home – it’s their first impression of your entire house. Many front doors can be worn, sun-bleached, scratched and knicked from years of door slams, being kicked open when your hands are full, and all-around use. Painting your front door is an easy way to score you some major curb appeal.


What Color to Use? Better Homes & Gardens put together a wonderful article on door colors. Here are a few of the highlights:


Neutral Colors Colors such as black, gray, or brown are classic colors that will easily stand the test of fashion and time. Even colors such as dark reds and navy blues act as neutrals on front doors.


Bright Colors They mention to not be afraid of bright colors. You may find that you like a splash of yellow, orange, or lime green. If these colors are too bright, they recommend using darker versions of the same colors.


Purchase the Right Paint Make sure that the paint you use is designed for outdoor use – outdoor latex paint is usually the best choice. No matter what paint you use, you’ll want to start with several coats of primer before applying your paint color. In order to best hide any dents or dings, semi-gloss is a great way to go.

I highly recommend the services of Alexandro Moncada, owner of Cumbre Solutions Remodeling and Construction. Alexandro and his crews will always take good care of you!
