5 Most Popular Colors to paint the INSIDE of your front door

For years, we have all lived with white doors on the inside of our front door without giving it a thought.  But suddenly it has become the trend to paint the inside of your front door.

Before you buy your favorite color of paint, there are a few things you should consider:

How to choose the paint color for the inside of your door

Think about what colors are already prominent in the surrounding area.  Pick an accent color from the entryway or adjoining room if you want the door to stand out.  Choose a neutral if you still want to make a statement but not sure if you want to go too bold.

As with any painting project, buy a sample and try it on your door before you paint the entire door to see how you like it.

Navy or a shade of blue also gives sophistication like black does but not quite so severe.

Aqua & Teal Interior Front Door Paint Colors

Aqua and teal have become favorite colors over the past decade for furniture, walls and to paint the inside of your front door.  It’s a beautiful color and is well suited in areas that are close to water and houses in warmer climates.  Aqua doors would look great in colder climates in the summer but would look out of place in the winter.  I painted my front exterior door teal which looks great in the summer but silly in the winter so I repainted it to a darker blue.
