Choosing a front door color for your home can be a difficult feat. While the exterior color of your home is a big decision, it’s often the accents that go along with the base that is an even bigger debate in one’s mind. Typically, your front door will be a different color than the rest of the home. It may seem like a bold decision to have the color of your front door “pop” out from the rest of the home. It’s not that much of a stretch to pick an odd color for the front door. When you pick the right shade, your home will stand out in a good way. The key is in picking a shade that contrasts well with the main color of your home. Here’s some thoughts on the colors that may make the perfect front door hue:
Green is a perfect color that is relevant the whole year through. From the brightness of spring to the dark of winter, it’s difficult to go wrong with green. There’s many, many different shades of green from celery green to forest, there’s sure to be a shade that will go well with your house. Green shades pair well with grays, blues, browns and tans.
Blue is another color with endless shades. The problem with a light blue door is that it wouldn’t stand out very well from the rest of your home. If you decide that blue will go best as a front door color on your home, go for a darker version. It will make a dramatic statement.
If your home is a darker color, white could be a great color for you to paint your door. While white seems kind of boring, it will certainly stand out if your home’s main color is a darker red, blue, or even a gray.
Red is a bold color for a front door. If your house is a shade of tan or gray, red may be just the color your front door needs. Red is certainly a color that provides a warm welcome to everyone who comes through the door!
Yellow is another bold, stand-out color that you can paint your front door. Yellow pairs well with many grays and shades of tan and white. This bold color will pop out just enough to make your front door give off a sunny vibe for a warm welcome.
Whether you want your home to give off a formal vibe or a more relaxed one, there’s a color for your front door. Remember that your front door is only one piece of what gives your home the curb appeal you’re looking for.
Tiny houses are trending. Americans want to live simpler lives. They want to get back to nature and feel more in control of their lives, both at work and at home. Evidence of this is reflected in the rising numbers of Americans who make up the gig economy. It’s also reflected in the numbers of people who are downsizing, ridding themselves of household clutter and opting for chic, modern or traditional interior designs that showcase their amazing personalities.
Get the space you want without moving to a new house
You don’t have to buy or live in a tiny house to want to make a small home appear bigger than it actually is. A new addition to your family, gaining a roommate or the operating a business out of your home are reasons why you might want to expand your living space without moving. These tricks may be just what you’re looking for.
- Buy and install multi-purpose furniture. Instead of a traditional sofa, get a sofa that unfolds into a bed. Also, go with a sofa that has bottom shelves for added storage space.
- Choose built-in wall bookcases. Four rows of wall bookcases can easily save you several square feet of floor space,especially if you consider how much space four large separate bookcases would take up.
- Install interior doors that also function as tables and storage shelves. These devices are interchangeable by removing and inserting clamps into levers.
- Choose transformable furniture. These furniture pieces save money and space. An example of transformable furniture is a table that doubles as a chair. You may have to visit specialty furniture stores to find transforming furniture pieces.
- Make good use of vertical space. Stack decorative storage bins on top of each other rather than shoving them in closets or placing them in or near the middle of a floor.
- Keep end tables close to chairs and sofas.
- Use tables that fold into chairs and rely on stylish ceiling lights for lighting. During the day, rely on natural light.
- Install removable dividers to turn a single room into a multi-purpose space. Go with dividers that are made with elegant designs.
- Purchase twin, bunk beds that fold away when not in use.
- Turn your attic into a master bedroom. Make sure that air flow and insulation in the attic is good, allowing the attic to easily heat and cool.
- Screen your front or back porch. Place chairs and a sofa on the porch and use the space as an outdoor office or socializing area.
- Donate furniture and objects that you don’t use to charities and community organizations.
A large house still serves as a sign of success in many communities. Other Americans are focusing on houses that are highly functional, whether that functionality comes through floor plans or solar energy. One thing is certain. Individual living space preferences are helping to reshape the housing market. It is exciting to watch the impact that those preferences are making.
