Transform your front door in 2023

Front Door Design Ideas

Transform your front door in 2023

It’s early 2023 and a great time to rethink your front door color! Changing your front door color is an easy way to add instant curb appeal to your home. Your home’s facade is usually a visitors’ first impression. An attractive door color is an essential part of that first impression. We’ve compiled some trending front door colors from various sources.

In the last few years, we’ve seen a soothing earth tones trend as we tended to remain closer to home and brought nature indoors. In 2023, color experts, designers, and paint manufacturers are leaning more toward bigger, bolder, and more self-expression. Rich, strong colors are experiencing a resurgence in design, while soothing neutrals remain popular. Basically, you do you! You should select colors that make you happy while being attractive in your home.

Consider This

        • You should consider how much sun your front door receives and whether it’s morning or afternoon sun.
        • What is the style of your home? Modern or traditional?
        • What’s your personal preference for color?
        • Can’t find a color you like? Create your own by blending colors. (We can assist with this.)
        • Don’t like any of the trending colors? Go with what you want.

Front Door Color Ideas

Dark Colors

Dark-colored front doors can act as a neutral or highlight, drawing attention. Also, dark front doors are elegant and eye-catching.

        • Sherwin William’s 2023 Homestead Collection Color of the Year Darkroom is an excellent idea for a beautiful front door.
        • We also like the brand’s other Color of the Year, Poetry Plum, which has slight pink and purple undertones while remaining a rich, dark color.
        • Benjamin Moore’s Kendall Charcoal is a dark, neutral gray that looks good with most design styles.

Go Green

Green is a beautiful choice for most houses and styles, whether light or dark. If you want to be more daring, go light or bright green. Use a darker green for a more traditional look.

        • We love Farrow & Ball’s Green Smoke for an earthy green color. It’s a cross between moss and grass.
        • Want a lighter green? Try Benjamin Moore’s Soft Fern. It’s a few shades lighter than Green Smoke.
        • Feeling the luck of the Irish and want a deeper green that’s not as dark as a hunter green? Try Sherwin William’s Shamrock!


It’s hard to go wrong with blue. It’s a perennial favorite in almost any shade – and there’s a shade for any design style!

        • A perennial favorite is Farrow & Ball’s Drawing Room Blue No. 253
        • One of our favorite dark blues (and a perennial designer favorite) remains Hale Navy from Benjamin Moore. It’s beautiful as an accent color and for a front door.
        • Feeling brave? Try a bold teal like Benjamin Moore’s Deep Ocean that can undoubtedly catch the eye.
        • Farrow & Ball’s De Nimes No. 299 is a popular and elegant blue with just a hint of green.


Earth tones are a no-fail option for exterior painting, including front doors. These hues suggest an inviting back-to-nature feel – making them ideal for a home’s exterior.

        • Benjamin Moore’s Harvest Brown is rich and warm.
        • Try Sherwin William’s Shitake if you want a more understated earth tone.
        • They also have Foothills, an understated beige with a touch of stone.
