Front doors should be an accent colour. In other words, they should be a strong, dramatic, bold shade. Usually, your front door colour should not be repeated anywhere else on your house although I have seen some exceptions to that rule.
Beauti-Tone Paint which is sold exclusively at Home Hardware, sent me their best front door colours recently so if it’s time to paint your front door this season, here are some perfect colours to choose from.
