Black is an extremely versatile hue that works with everything – especially on a front door! It’s a polished, dramatic color that will complement most any architecture as well as greet your guests in style. Meet Elegant – the rich, deep ebony color that’s timeless and classic and one of the 24 colors available in our non fade Front Door Paint line. Each color was based on global design trends and the Emotional Color Wheel. Today we showcase five black front door project ideas that are sure to inspire!
Jill from Sew a Fine Seam built and painted her way to a stunning front door makeover. Updated trim, a new postal box and a fresh color scheme significantly increased her curb appeal. She also loved the fast drying capabilities of Front Door Paint, sharing, “I LOVED this paint. Truly. This paint was way better to use than any latex wall paint I’ve ever used.”
Cindy from DIY Beautify had a dilemma. “Trying to find the best paint that will stand up to the weather, not knowing how long till it fades and you have to repaint again can keep even the most die-hard DIYer from wanting to paint their door.” When she found Front Door Paint, she was ecstatic! The Elegant black on the front door pairs extremely well with her white trim and red brick exterior, don’t you think? Visit her blog for all her front door redo details.
For a cohesive exterior facade, Courtney from Golden Boys & Me paired her Elegant black front door with black shutters for a beautiful dose of drama against a light, buttery yellow.
Samantha from Crafty Texas Girls loved Front Door Paint’s satin finish and attributes. “Rich, shiny front door paint makes such a difference and improves curb appeal! Modern Masters is especially easy to work with because it dries quickly, so you can paint and close your door on the same day.” Samantha carefully chose fixtures, decor accents and landscaping to create a stylish entry.
Chic black with a pop of color! Amy from 11 Magnolia Lane transformed her front door with both black and red. Using the Elegant black as the main color, she also used our Ambitious red to give an added dose of personality. She explains, “Since I had to be conservative with the paint colors on the outside, I wanted something fun on the inside. It’s just the right bit of the unexpected when you open the door.”
What an incredible first impression each front door makes! If you’d like to see if Elegant black is the color for you, be sure to use our free Front Door Paint app available for both iPhone and Android. Snap a pic of your door and scroll through all 24 Front Door Paint colors to see which ones look best! As for painting, in case your door requires priming, we do recommend using a deep color based primer prior to using Elegant Front Door Paint. No topcoat is needed as the paint is weather and fade resistant. We hope you’ve enjoyed these ideas to enhance your curb appeal and create a welcoming entrance!
