What Does the Colour of Your Front Door Say About You?

I love when a home has a coloured entry door, it makes the home stand out from the rest, and it gives the home personality. When choosing your door colour remember it says a lot more about your personality then your homes.

So what does the colour mean?

Blue: If blue is your favorite colour you love harmony, are reliable, sensitive and always make an effort to think of others.  You like to keep things clean and tidy and feel that stability is the most important aspect in life.

Black: People who choose black as their favorite colour are often artistic and sensitive.  While these people aren’t introverts, they are careful with the details of their lives and do not share easily with others.

White: People who like white are often organized and logical and don’t have a great deal of clutter in their lives.

Red: Those who love red live life to the fullest and are tenacious and determined in their endeavors.

Green: Those who love the colour green are often affectionate, loyal and frank.  Green lovers are also aware of what others think of them and consider their reputation very important.

Yellow: You enjoy learning and sharing your knowledge with others. Finding happiness comes easy to you and others would compare you to sunshine.

Purple: You are artistic and unique.  You have a great respect for people but at times can be arrogant.

Brown: You are a good friend and try your hardest to be reliable and dependable.  Flashy objects are not something you desire; you just want a stable life.

Having a paintable front door gives you the ability to express your personality over and over again. The ability to paint your entry door allows you to update your homes curb appeal without a huge investment, and allows you to share your personality with the neighbourhood.

When choosing a colour for your front door, or for your house for that matter, go with something that suits your personality. But remember you don’t always have to go ‘bright and bold’ with colour, if greens speak to you why not try a soft sage green? Colours like this will still enhance your home and show your true colours.
