Benjamin Moore 806 Breath of Fresh Air

Your front door is one of the first things your guests notice as they come to your home, and it’s a great spot to add some color. Because it’s a relatively small space, you can play with different hues you might not use on larger areas, like rooms or statement walls, so why not try a bright, bold, or trendy color to add interest and curb appeal? Today, we’ve gathered 30 of the most popular front door paint colors to inspire you to take another look at your own entry. We’ve shared the manufacturer and shade where possible, but a few couldn’t be confirmed.


Black is a classic color for nearly any surface. When painted on a front door, black gives your entry a chic and sophisticated look.

This is a lovely entryway. The black door—Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black—beautifully complements the black lantern, mailbox, and house numbers.

Gray is a popular front door color, for good reason. It’s so versatile and comes in a variety of front door–worthy hues.

The gray on these French doors, Benjamin Moore Chelsea Gray, adds interest but doesn’t overshadow or compete with the other architectural details of this beautiful entryway.

Blues can be soothing and welcoming or bold and dramatic, as these shades show.

Doors painted a dark slate blue have twice the resonance, like Georgian doors in London or Dublin. Here, the color is custom mixed. According to the designer: “I took the darkest blue I [could] get and then added a black tinting paint to achieve final result.”
