Murrells Inlet Real Estate- Front Door Colors

 

The great front door color debate has been ongoing for the last few months.  My fiancé and I purchased a beautiful new construction home, and I was able to pick out the colors of most things like the siding, the front door, the flooring, and the cabinets.  I love the color gray and that it is on-trend.  I do love a good pop of color, but I feel like the neutrals allow you to change the look of your space by changing less expensive items such as curtains and rugs instead of cabinets and flooring.  Before any of my personal items were inside of the home, it was bland.  Everything was gray!  Except for the front door.  The builder had an option for us to have a red front door, and I ran with it.  Growing up, I always (and still do) loved the look of the traditional colonial style home in all-white complete with columns, black accents, and a bright red door.  I was excited to have a red door of my own.  I had always believed that it was a sign of welcome.  In early America, if a family had a red door that meant that weary travelers were welcome to stop and rest along their journey.  The 6 months of construction goes by, and I finally have my red door.  Yay!  But then I realize that everyone else building in the community was just as excited as I was and also chose a red door.  If I look out from my front porch, you can see 12 other houses with the same front door color.  All the houses have a similar look.  I suppose you could say, “That’s what to expect when purchasing in a new home community.”  And you would be somewhat right.  But that doesn’t mean that I can’t do something to change it, right?  So, with my very gray exterior, I started to think about door colors that would add a pop of color.  I need something with a little personality, but not anything too over the top.  My mother suggested teal, but it just doesn’t fit my style.  My mind immediately turned to yellow.  It is my favorite color after all.  And not a light pastel yellow.  I was thinking more along the lines of a rich golden yellow.  I was thinking that with changing the door to yellow, I could paint my darker gray shutters black giving the home good contrast and creating a look that is a little different than my neighbors' homes.  I went onto Paint 3D and changed the shutters to black and the front door to yellow and sent the picture out to all my close friends and family to get their feedback.  Everyone overwhelmingly voted for the red door.  I am aware that it is my front door, and I can do whatever I want to it, within the confines of the ARB board, of course, but you value your friends and loved one’s opinions.  And that brings us here.  I have the picture that I sent out added so you all can weigh in.  Which one do you like better?
