With a can of paint and a couple planters, you are well on your way to a lovely, new, front entry. Check out these 20+ front door ideas for inspiration.

Neutral Front Doors

If you aren’t a big fan of bright colors for the front of your home, these neutrals are a great start.

Black Front Door Ideas

Black is a classic, and simple, choice for a front door. I especially like black doors with red brick exteriors.

It goes with just about anything and it makes an impact due to its deep color.

Of course, black plays well with many other colors and textures besides brick.

Gray Front Door Ideas

If black feels too intense for your home, charcoal or deep gray is a great option. In this post, find a farmhouse, traditional, and modern home with gray front doors and coordinating outdoor accessories.

White Front Doors

A white front door is a neutral option that won’t be the focal point. Do you like muted exteriors surrounded by the lush greens of nature? A white door might be the perfect choice for your home. In this post, find a traditional, coastal, and minimalist home with white front doors and coordinating outdoor accessories.

Purple Front Doors

Would you have ever considered a purple, pink or yellow door? They are out-of-the-box choices and can be a dose of personality for your home. The front entry is a visitor’s first introduction to your family. If you have a house filled with bright and bold personalities, don’t be afraid to choose an unexpected color for your door.

When you add a set of matching planters, you can bring in another color with the plants that you choose. Painting a door isn’t a big project — and neither is filling up a set of pots with soil. This is a very doable weekend project, that can update the exterior of your home.

So, I’m curious. Which color front door is your favorite and why? Comment your answer below.

There is a picture with the aqua door with the black awning about. Could you tell me where the awning came from? Thanks.

Great question! Isn't that a beautiful awning? It is from an exterior makeover by Cote de Texas - She may be able to provide the manufacturer of the actual awning.

That purple door is seriously amazing!! Though if I ever get a house, I'd probably go neutrals, sticking to black...

I love a set of ferns for the front porch. We usually hang ours, but they look great in the planters.
