Dark neutrals

Most people know that neutral tones are the way to go, but beyond whites, creames and grays, interior designers recommend using dark neutral colors where it makes sense.

A recent study analyzing front door colors and corresponding sale prices found that a black painted door sell help homes sell for an average of $6,271 more than projected.

If you’re ready to go bold, try Black Magic for a true black or Wrought Iron for more of a charcoal black.

Just like with all paint colors, black paint colors have undertones that will be more apparent depending on what they’re paired with. Make sure to test your favorite black hues against your home’s exterior colors before you commit.

If a black door won’t complement your color scheme, here’s other colors you might consider:

  • Bright yellow
  • Eggshell blue
  • Rustic red
  • Vibrant green

Blue hues

Want to accentuate something in a room? Research shows blue is a highly favored accent color. Whether you’re painting built ins, an accent wall, shutters, a fireplace or even furniture, blue is a great option.

Try Waterloo for a deep blue green tone or the ever popular navy blue hue, Naval or Hale Navy. Navy blue hues are also a very popular choice for front door colors, as well.

Warm whites

White is a very popular wall color these days, but don’t make the grave mistake of thinking any white tone will work.

Steer clear of cool white tones that have blue undertones in them, and instead gravitate towards soft whites. You want white tones that have greige, beige or even creamy yellow undertones to give your walls some warmth.

We love White Dove, Alabaster and White Flour for a soft white appearance.

Soft grays

Gray paint colors have been in style for years, and aren’t going to be phased out anytime soon. Just like with white colors, choosing the right gray tone means choosing a warmer tone that doesn’t have too harsh of an undertone.

To avoid choosing a gray tone that’s too cool for their space, many people opt for a greige tone–which is a blend of beige and gray. Warm neutrals like Worldly Gray or Repose Gray will work to give rooms a refreshed look and tend to work well with many decor styles.
