When it comes to curb appeal and front yard landscaping ideas, there are several things to consider. While your stunning front garden and cobblestone walkway are important qualities, nothing makes a home stand out more than choosing a memorable, beautiful front door color. From sharp shades of red to cool hues of blue, this list of the best front door colors includes paint options for the daring as well as the traditional. Whether it's sprucing up farmhouse front doors or putting a modern spin on your home, there's no shortage of paints to choose from.

For instance, if you're looking to upgrade an old home without straying too far from its roots, look to the soft coral pink or canary yellow for colors that will stand out, but not look out of place. These ideas will look beautiful on French or Dutch door ideas, and even screen doors. Reds and blues tend to be popular colors, and this list provides a multitude of tones including fiery scarlet and cheerful periwinkle. New builds, tiny cottages, and 100-year-old Victorian homes all find a place on this list. Once you've sorted out your front door colors, then you can move on to your best front porch ideas to create a space you'll never want to leave.
