Front DoorFront DoorI am trying to decide on a color for my front door.  My house is a beige color with a light sand trim around the windows as well as the window panes themselves are light sand.  The shutters are black.  We just did the posts and deck facing Benjamin Moore's Ferret Brown.  I had originally intended to paint the door black but am now unsure.Should I paint the door:-black?-Ferret Brown?- or some other color like a red or an orange?-or any other color?I'm so scared to make the wrong choice. ImageImage

I agree with u but my door is matte black and i don't want black. Almost the only option is high gloss black. It's dark at the entrance and I want color. I think I will pick my favorite color and go as dark as almost black. But I will get sample colors to make sure I will like it. It won't be bright but there will be color like red or orange.

So I totally took the risk and went with an deep warm orange color and love it.  Had lots of compliments on in it.  Figured I could always cover it up with black if it hadn't turned out.  Went with a Home Hardware color but then had it color matched and tweaked at Benjamin Moore.

The black one doesn't seem good at all, the original one was correct

Actually I like the original color and the  home's appearance, makes visitors feel welcome.

I like the idea of painting the shutters a charcoal and then hitting the front door with black.  I realize this might be more work than you had anticipated though!Robin @
