The color of your front door reveals more about your personality than you’d think.

We often use color to express ourselves, and the color on your front door is no different. If your door could use some freshening up, consider the statement you want it to make.

Let’s take a spin on the color wheel to see what the color of your front door says about you!


When crossing through a black front door, you are entering a world of order and control.
You like a classic look and are not swayed easily by trends.


Red is bold, yet inviting. Traditionally, a red door signals a hospitable home.

If you have a red door, you also enjoy attention and like to live your life to the fullest.

An orange front door is as warm as your personality.
You’re not afraid to make a bright color choice! You have your own one-of-a-kind style.


The most common of all front door colors says you’re neat, clean, organized and like to keep it simple.


Traditionally, green indicated prosperity and wealth, but its appeal to nature also means you’re calm, peaceful and responsible.

You like to stand out and really make an impression!
You have a sunny disposition and look on the bright side of any situation.


Gray is an indecisive color – a mix of black and white.
If you choose to paint your front door gray, you have a hard time making decisions and prefer to compromise.


Those who paint their doors blue enjoy peace and value truth.
They are well grounded and true to themselves.

Brown doors indicate that those within are warm, reliable and stable, like the Earth.
They can keep an even head and are trustworthy.


A risky, uncommon choice; a purple door says you’re comfortable taking risks.
You’re a dreamer and free-spirit.


You’re a hopeless romantic, but also thoughtful, cheery and generous.
