Stunning front door colors to boost curb appeal

Forget white, black and brown front doors. Welcome your guests with a surprising pop of yellow, pink, green and more.

1-Red. "Painting your front door any color that stands out from your house color is a cheap, effective way to add a 'pop' to your home and curb appeal," says Michelle Burke of REFINED Interior Design near Boston. "Bold, bright hues — particularly reds and greens — are the hottest trend right now, but there is no rule against mixing colors to paint your own hue." Copy this look with SW-6869 Stop by Sherwin-Williams:

2-Yellow. Sarah, a historic renovations consultant, painted the front door of a recent project a show-stopping yellow. After the paint scheme was revealed on Sarah's home decor blog, The Estate of Things, area homes all around her small town of Southern Pines, North Carolina, began popping up with bright yellow doors as well. Sarah used Showtime by Benjamin Moore:

3-Blue. "Painting a front door in a bold color can completely transform the home's curb appeal," says Dee Schlotter, national color brand manager for PPG The Voice of Color Program. "Calvary PPG1041-7 (shown below) is bold enough to make a statement but still maintains an overall traditional appearance for homeowners wary of making a drastic change."

4-Turquoise. For a blue that's really on-trend, consider PPG's 2015 Color of the Year, Blue Paisley PPG 1238-6 (similar to below). The gorgeous hue pairs beautifully with gray, white and stone exteriors.

5-Orange. When it comes to colors that pop, few shades can outshine orange. This front door, featured on an Asian-style home in Los Angeles, wins our vote for the most attention-getting curb appeal.Copy the look with Valspar's Island Orange 2010-2:

6-Coral. It's been said that coral lipstick flatters every complexion. Likewise, coral paint flatters every home exterior. Jackie Jordan, director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams, recommends her company's color of the year, Coral Reef SW-6606, shown below, for a welcoming front entryway.

8-Lime. Chartreuse. Lemon-lime. Whatever it's called, we love it. Add it to the front of a traditional brick house for a fun pop of the unexpected. (And Sherwin-Williams' Jordan recommends painting the door's interior as well. So fun!) Try Behr's Lime Pop S-G-400 to get the look below, or take it down a few notches with Sherwin-Williams' Sassy Green SW-6416:

9-Mint. If you don't quite have the nerve to go full-on chartreuse, consider a muted, pastel shade instead. This one looks especially striking against the dark exterior of a modern home in Los Angeles. Get the look with Behr's Cabbage Green 410A-2

13-Gray. There are far more than fifty shades of gray, and each is a elegant way to set off an entry. This transitional home in Orange County gets its curb appeal from the shades of gray repeated in the door, walkway and garden features. Copy the deep gray below with PPG Pittsburgh Paint's Volcanic Ash 555-6:
