Believe it or not, specific colors and/or hues are associated with different types of residential
architecture (sample colors below; see the full list).
Depending on the architectural style of your home,
you may want to consider your overall paint scheme and incorporate one of Modern Masters' Front Door Colors above
that fall within that scheme.
Arts and Crafts - rich tones combined with neutrals
Colonial - earthy tones and snappy distinctive colors
Cottage - dreamy and creamy pastel palette
Existing House / Trim Colors
Consider your existing house and trim colors when selecting a paint color for your front door. You may fall in
love with a color for your front door but make sure it does not clash with your existing color scheme.
Using a color wheel may help if you have trouble associating the right colors.
Decide what effect you are trying to achieve by painting your front door. Warm colors like yellow, orange, and red
inspire whereas passive colors like blue, green, or purple tend to be more calming.
Go bold! Don't be afraid to choose a bold color. Your front door should speak to your personality and give a hint
as to what lies inside! Who doesn't notice a beautiful and colorful front door - it can add immense curb appeal.
How To Paint Your Door
Choosing the right color is one thing, giving your front door professional looking appeal is another when painting
an exterior door.
Modern Masters' Front Door Paint is non-fading and has a quick-dry water-based formula allowing you to paint and close your door in the same day.
It comes in a convenient quart size that covers 80-100 square feet.
This special front door paint is easy to use and you don't have to remove your door.
After you choose your color (the really fun part!), test your door to see if it was painted with latex or oil
paint. To do so, apply a little rubbing alcohol with a rag to a portion of your door. If the paint comes off it
was painted with latex paint.
If not, then it was painted with an oil-based paint and you will need to apply a bonding primer
first. Not to worry, a bonding primer sticks to the oil based paint and will also adhere to the front door
paint. You can find a bonding primer at hardware stores and home improvement stores.
Dave's Note: Don't take a short cut and paint latex over oil-based paint. Although it might look great at first,
the latex will peel right off. When painting, please remember that preparation is key!
To paint an exterior door, tape off handles, hinges, and glass, etc.
Keep and eye on the weather. Plan painting on a nice day with little to no wind as your door will be open
during the painting and drying stage. Plan to begin painting between 8 to 10 a.m.
